Llanelli youngster called up for international duty
Llanelli youngster Anthony Nelson has been called up to the final Cayman Islands squad for their international fixture against Montserrat.
The Cayman Islands are set to play Montserrat on Friday in their final CONCACAF Nations League qualifier, and the Llanelli youngster is set to make his debut in the fixture.
The winger is yet to feature for the country, but the Reds’ winger is excited at the prospect of turning out for his country.
“That’s the dream. Everyone dreams of playing for their country, no matter how big or small. There are also some quality player on our team Monsterrat is one win away from qualifying for the Gold Cup, so it’s going to be a massive game, and a great one to be part of,” Nelson told Cayman Sports Buzz.
The winger only joined Llanelli in the summer following their promotion to the top flight of Welsh football, but has made 12 appearances for Andy Hill’s men this term.
The wide man was previously with Bognor Regis, and despite Llanelli’s woes in the JD Welsh Premier League this term, he has earned an international call up for the Cayman Islands.
The hosts can deny Montserrat a place in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the fixture, as the world’s 200th ranked side host the British Overseas Territory tomorrow evening.
Nelson’s call up comes in the same week that Cefn Druids’ Alec Mudimu was called up to the Zimbabwe National team.
Mudimu has become a regular in the national team over the past 12 months, and has now been called up to the national squad as they prepare to take on Congo in the AFCON qualifiers.
