Well, Guyana’s home World Cup qualifier against Mexico is getting weirder and weirder.
First of all, the Friday game was moved from the Caribbean country to BBVA Stadium in Houston, which essentially makes it a home match for the Mexicans.
And not its Trinidad & Tobagan coach, Jamaal Shabazz, won’t be able to make the game due to “personal reasons,” Goal.com reported.
However, Shabazz will coach the team via Skype.
That’s right, he will direct the team via Skype.
“There are technology systems [Skype] that will allow him to communicate with the group,” Guyana assistant coach Wayne Dover told Goal.com. “The players here know the style of play, and I’m sure they’ll give a great exhibition.”
Guyana (0-3-1, one points) enters the match with its CONCACAF Group B chances hanging by a thread. Anything but a win will eliminate the Caribbean side.
Mexico (4-0-0, 12) already has qualified for next year’s hexagonal.
“They’re a superior team,” Dover was quoted by Goal.com. “They’re at all the World Cups.”
