The St. Kitts and Nevis U20 team captivated spectators in the Dominican Republic with their brilliant soccer skills and team spirit. They have proven that they are a force to be reckoned with in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifiers as they topped Group Four.
St Kitts & Nevis, who beat eastern Caribbean neighbours Dominica 4-2 in the venue’s curtain-raiser, topped the group with six points and a goal difference of plus three. Scoring for St. Kitts and Nevis were Gvanne Amory 14th , Steve Archibald 43rd, Tahir Hanley 72nd and Javier Sutton in the 77th. Scoring for Dominica Fitz Jolly in the 68th minute and Dillon Augustine in the 70th.
Having beaten the likes of Jamaica and Dominica, St. Kitts ensured that they completed their task of finishing first and scoring more goals. This left teams scrabbling as they had to win their matches convincingly. Such a task proved hard for Jamaica. Despite their win against the Dominican Republic, (Jamaica 2 Dominican Republic 1) on Sunday, they were eliminated from the CFU Championship to be held later this year, after finishing third in Group Four with six points and a goal difference of plus one.
Dominican Republic were second with six points and a goal difference also of plus three, but they scored fewer goals than St Kitts & Nevis. Dominica finished without a point.

Having assured themselves a spot in the Final round, to be held in Curacao during the month of October from the 21st – 26th of this year, the U20 National team would have ample time to fine tune their strategic game plans.
