Montserrat: Kymani Nelson was first called up for national duty as a goalkeeper in August 2018 to participate in the Caribbean Football Union Boy’s Under -14 challenge series held in St Kitts. Since then, Kymani has participated in various tournaments to include the Concacaf under 15 held in Miami in 2019 and the Concacaf U20 Men’s Championship Qualifiers held in Nicaragua in 2020.

Kymani is one of the most disciplined and dedicated young players on the team. His drive and persistence lead him to secure a spot on the Men’s senior team in 2021 as a substitute goalkeeper. He has proven to be a huge asset to his team as he is always vocal during training sessions and on match day. Although he is the youngest on the Men’s senior team Kymani has earned the respect of his teammates.

In 2022 he became the youngest starting goalkeeper to represent the Montserrat National Team internationally when he was called up as the starting goalkeeper for the Concacaf Nations League 2022 tournament. Kymani represented well and was commended for his commitment and growth since 2018.

Kymani Nelson represents the best ideals of the Montserrat Football Association where we seek to develop disciplined young men and women on and off the field.

The Department of Community, Youth & Sports Services and the Montserrat Football Association Inc. wishes Kymani Nelson all the best in his future endeavors.
