Barbados’ senior national football team’s road to the FIFA World Cup 2022 will begin tonight at the Estadio Felix Sanchez Stadium in the Dominican Republic.

The Tridents are set to clash with world No.78-ranked Panama for the first time in their opening encounter of the Concacaf qualifiers at 8 p.m.

Panama qualified for the 2018 edition of the biggest football tournament in Russia three years ago and will start as favourites to easily defeat Russell Latapy’s men.

But football is played on the day and Latapy, referred to as the “Little Magician”, will have to wave his special wand if Barbados are to get a positive result. Since taking over from former technical director Ahmed Mohammed in 2019, Latapy has a 60 per cent win ratio from ten games, having won six and lost four. (AGB)
