For us, we have the  mindset that we can win anywhere but we have to work as team to win.” 

The Grenada Senior National Men’s team was also hard at work over the last few months preparing for their international engagements and over the weekend held a camp which focused  on fitness and tactical drills. Senior Men’s Head Coach Anthony ‘Nixon’ Modeste is confident in  his team and expects them to do well.
