At a simple function, Rodrigues conveyed the Ambassador’s best wishes to the team, informing them that Ambassador Talbot is an ardent Golden Jaguars fan, and wanted the team to be aware of that fact.“This encampment is historic, as it is happening in a year when Guyana and Brazil are celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations. Events to celebrate this milestone would be taking place in Brazil and Guyana. I would like to wish the team and management, on behalf of Ambassador Talbot, the very best going forward, and encourage you to be the best. Work hard and the good results will follow,” Rodrigues encouraged the team.A qualified former coach, who once briefly served as President of the West Demerara Football Association (WDFA), Rodrigues also complimented the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) for the initiative of having the camp in Brazil, which can only boost the sport in Guyana.He also disclosed that an anniversary symposium would have already been held at the University of Brasilia and Roraima, and there would be an exchange of cultural troupes between the two neighbours.“Later in the year, we should issue some stamps to commemorate the event, so I think a team coming here at this time is very significant. It may have taken us 50 years to bring a squad to Brazil, but I think our development is getting closer to the level that Brazil is. My word to the players is: remain committed, remain disciplined, and doors will open for you. I am excited about the new management and coach; the atmosphere is just positive, and I really admire that. I know that we are going to go places,” Rodrigues declared.last_img
