Game on!

That’s the assurance now being given by the captain of the Soca Warriors, Kenwynne Jones.

Speaking with the T&T Guardian a short while ago, Jones said he was contacted by the Minister of Sport Dr Rupert Griffith early this morning and given an assurance that the national footballers will be paid all outstanding arrears.

"We are happy that they stepped in to sort out the situation. So, as a result of the assurance given we are holding them to their word and game is on.

"We cannot comment further but we are going to wait until we get those cheques in our hands as promised again."

Tonight the T&T Soca Warriors will play in the final against the Jamaica national team, the Reggae Boyz, at the Montego Bay Sports Complex in Jamaica.

Asked if he and the team were ready for tonight’s battle for the CFU Caribbean Cup title, Jones said, "Despite all that we have been through, the guys are hyped. We are looking forward to tonight's game because it may be the first and only time that we will win something for T&T. We will be going out to bring back that title."

Last night, Jones and his team said they had decided to boycott the match pending the payment of arrears going back as far as four years. The players said they were frustrated over the situation.

The Soca Warriors are expected to return to T&T tomorrow night.
