Anguilla National Football Team. Vinnie Jones reports that the national soccer team will be playing it's second international match of the year:

As World Cup football fever has gripped Anguilla as it has the rest of the world the national football team are to play their second international match of the season against Saint-Martin on Sunday 23rd June. This follows a convincing victory in a friendly match against HMS Richmond on Tuesday where despite numerous enforced changes the Anguilla team put on a spirited performance winning 6-2. The match was a valuable moral booster following the years earlier 2-1 loss against St Martin. The quality of play by Anguilla’s team was a marked improvement. The stars for Anguilla in this match were Javille Brooks, with 4 goals, with Leon Jeffers putting in a committed and strong defensive performance.

It is understood that a squad of about 20 with new national team coach Scott Cooper, travel early Sunday afternoon for the 4.00 kick-off in Sandy Ground Saint-Martin.

So all those who can go along to support please do!
