Saint Vincent & the Grenadines Men's National Soccer Team News


September 4, 2015 - Tevin Slater & Oalex Anderson score in win over Aruba
"Tevin Slater scored five minutes into the second half to help St. Vincent and the Grenadines defeat Aruba 2-0. Oalex Anderson added a second goal in stoppage time for the hosts." - ESPN

June 10, 2015 - Tevin Slater scores equalizer in draw with Guyana 
"Guyana’s Golden Jaguars, playing in their first Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier, drew 2-2 with St Vincent and the Grenadines at the Arnos Vale Playfield in Kingstown, thanks to goals from Daniel Wilson and Brandon Beresford on either side of the half.... the home side would equalise through their dapper forward Cornelius Stewart, who is well known to Guyana’s head coach Jamaal Shabazz, given the fact that the Vincentian had played with Caledonia AIA in the TT Pro-League. The 25-year-old Stewart had troubled Guyana’s defence several times in the first half and finally got past Akel Clarke in the 51st minute to draw St Vincent and the Grenadines level. Both sides were guilty of not capitalising on their chances on goal, but Guyana, in the 75th minute through Wilson, got the ice-breaker. Wilson, who plays locally with Alpha United latched on to ‘through ball’ and the 21-year-old forward calmly patted his effort past an outstretched McDowall. With victory in sight, the Golden Jaguars were cautious in their play, but the defence caved after pressure from the ‘Vincy Heat’ and second half substitute Tevin Slater equalise just before the end of regulation and full time as his side had to settle for a draw." - Guyana Times

May 16, 2015 - Myron Samuel scores in win over Dominica
"St. Vincent and the Grenadines came into Saturday evening, the third day of the Windward Islands Football Association 2015 Men’s Championship, in pole position.... the Vincentians got their third win in three, beating Dominica 1-0 through a Myron Samuel strike in the 22nd minute. His fourth goal of the tournament came courtesy of a left-sided run from the competition’s Most Valuable Player, Emerald ‘Monkey’ George, and it was enough to lift the Heat to their first sub-regional title since 1973." - St. Lucia News

May 12, 2015 - Myron Samuel scores brace in win over Grenada
"St. Vincent & the Grenadines took the early advantage as the 2015 Windward Islands Football Association Men's Championship got underway on Tuesday with a doubleheader at the Philip Marcellin Grounds. The Vincy Heat edged Grenada 3-2 in an opener that featured a pair of two-goal performances, as well as a couple of ejections. Myron Samuel notched the game-winner from the penalty spot shortly after Shane Rennie committed an infraction in the box, resulting in his 84th minute dismissal for a second yellow card. Prior to the 29-year-old midfielder's departure, though, Rennie had netted twice.  His brilliant free-kick made it 1-1 in the 39th minute and he leveled once again 40 minutes later. Emerald George gave St. Vincent & the Grenadines a 1-0 in the 34th minute, while Samuel made it 2-1 with a 76th minute strike." - CONCACAF

September 21, 2014 - plenty of kicking in 6-0 win over British Virgin Islands
"The Vincy Heat commanded the early exchanges and threatened the Virgin Islands’ (VI) goal on many occasions before finally getting on the score sheet inside the first ten minutes when Myron Samuel spun onto a loose ball in the penalty box and fired home. Azinho Johnson then doubled the advantage 15 minutes later, appearing unmarked at the far post to head home a pin point cross from Samuel.... Another indecisive piece of VI defending saw Johnson score his second and the Vincy third when Samuel latched onto a scuffed clearance from Jamal Sergeant and with quick feet fed his team mate who made no mistake from close range. Edwards had a chance to make it four moments later following more panic and a goal mouth scramble, but then Samuel raced onto a through ball, beating the offside trap and slipped a pass into the path of Emerald George who was left with a simple tap in.... The Vincy were also dangerous on the break and were denied time and time again by Barker including one athletic single handed leaping tip over before Edwards scored his second to make it five and Shandel Samuel rounded out the scoring at six after another unselfish pass from skipper Samuel." - Virgin Islands News
