Romaine Sawyers captain as St Kitts and Nevis beaten in Suriname

Sugar Boyz lose final qualifier

24 March 2019

St Kitts and Nevis missed out on this summer's Gold Cup and qualification for League A of the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League after a 2-0 defeat in Suriname overnight.

Romaine Sawyers captained his side once more, knowing that victory would give St Kitts a real chance of earning a spot in League A of the Nations League. It wasn't to be however as Stefano Russel netted late on in the first-half with Ivenzo Comvalius making the game safe in the closing stages. 

The defeat means St Kitts have taken six points from their four qualifiers and will go into League B of the CONCACAF Nations League when it gets underway in September. They have also missed out on a place in the USA for the Gold Cup this summer. 

The cap was Romaine's 26th for his nation and eighth while a Brentford player.
