      It would be good, but I’d be surprised. Pretty sure there is no international break scheduled that early in the new year, so no reason for clubs to allow players to fly home.

    • Fill says:

      They wouldn’t come back for a friendly

  3. Fly it says:

    Man! For a second I thought Andrew Bascome was gonna be playing. Bet he could still do it.

  4. Are you kidding me? says:

    Very positive news I really like that,I think it’s a splendid idea,and all our football fans should try and come out and show our support …

  5. Job Ad? says:

    How is Andrew Bascome still the National Team Coach? He resigned. Please ensure that ALL players and ALL coaches are drug tested and cleared of any gang involvement. Practice year round. Don’t always blame the players, have coaches take some responsibility for poor performance and lack of regular training sessions.

    Thank you Bernese for calling the Worlds game ” Football” still and not being a follower and calling it soccer which is called only by North Americans and the Assuies.

  7. Mary Mary says:

    6 – 1 Canada.
    Just sayin

    • PBanks says:

      That’s why they play the matches on the field.

      That said, what a coup for the BFA to secure a home contest against Canada, who despite their ranking, represent a ‘big draw’ in the region.
