The Sugar Girlz will bow into action this evening at the HEB Park in Texas, USA in the Concacaf Olympic Women’s Football qualifiers. The match against Canada begins at 6:30pm. At a press conference on Tuesday, Coach Jene Baclawski, said the match this evening is the biggest in the history of the St. Kitts and Nevis women’s team and they are ready to face their opponents match. “I am really excited personally, to be in a match against Canada. It’s a big game.

Coach Baclawski spoke about the makeup of the team. “If you look at the makeup of our roster, we are really young. Fifty percent of the players that were chosen for this roster are under 20 and fifty percent are senior players. There is also a mix of players who are from the island and who are outside the island,” she disclosed. “The thing that has been the most surprising to me is how receptive they have been to the ideas that we brought in.
