St. George’s, 5th September, 2023 – The Grenada Football Association (GFA) has released its 21-man squad for the eagerly anticipated opening match of the 2023-2024 Concacaf Nations League (CNL) against Suriname on Friday September 8 at 7pm (Kirani James Athletics Stadium). The showdown is set to rekindle a 17-year-old rivalry between the two nations, with the last encounter taking place in the Caribbean Cup on September 8, 2006, resulting in a 1-0 victory in favor of Suriname.

Head Coach Terry Connor is confident, believing that Team Grenada will rewrite history this time around. The squad is a blend of local talent and overseas-based players, with a total of 13 homegrown players proudly representing Grenada, comprising 62% of the squad.

The new additions to the squad bring fresh energy and international experience. Jermaine Francis, who plays for Chelmsford City FC in the UK, Jacob Bedeau, a player at English professional club Morecambe FC, and Darius Johnson, joining from FC Volendam in the Netherlands, will don the Grenadian jersey for the first time.

As the team prepares to compete in the top tier of the Concacaf Nations League, known as League A, the goal remains to maintain their hard-earned status. Grenada was drawn in Group B alongside Jamaica, Suriname, Honduras, Haiti, and Cuba.
