Terell Thomas stars for Saint Lucia


Addicks defender Terell Thomas helped Saint Lucia seal promotion to League B for the next edition of the CONCACAF Nations League on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old played a key role in both games against Anguilla and Dominica as Stern John’s side secured successive victories to conclude their Nations League campaign with a 100% record.

As group winners, Saint Lucia will now compete against 11 other teams in this summer’s qualifying tournament to determine the final three teams to qualify for the 2023 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Speaking in a post-match press conference following Tuesday’s triumph against Dominica, Thomas said: “It’s fantastic for the team and where we want to go - it’s a step in the right direction.

“We knew that we were capable of winning this group but we had to put what we knew we could do onto the pitch, which we did in all four games.

“We showed quality with the goals we scored. We could have scored more goals, but the aim was to win all four games and that’s what we’ve done.

“The main thing in football is momentum. We want to keep that momentum going now and winning needs to be a habit. You don’t want to take your foot off the gas.

“We’ve got that momentum now; we’ve won the four games and the team is in really good spirit going into the games in June.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m excited for the future that the Saint Lucia national team has.”
