Canadian National Footballer to Conduct Clinics in Guyana

Canadian National Footballer to Conduct Clinics in Guyana

Posted by Lynie Awywen on December 16, 2013

TORONTO , Canada – Canadian national player Dwayne DeRosario is eagerly looking forward to his upcoming coaching stint in Guyana where he is scheduled to conduct clinics for young footballers in the Upper Demerara region.

DeRosario’s visit to Guyana coincides with the current Chico/Kashif & Shangai Secondary Schools football tournament and has been made possible through the involvement of organisers Kashif Muhamad and Aubrey “Shangai” Major.

Born of Guyanese parents, Tony and Carol-Anne, the 35-year-old attacking mid-fielder has been making a name for himself on the Canadian and International circuits over the years and in an interview with Chronicle Sport spoke of his longing to see his parents’ birth place for the first time.

DeRosario, who will be accompanied by his father and brother Paul, pointed out that he is culturally aware of his roots and is looking forward to fulfil a life-long dream.
An experienced campaigner, DeRosario was expected to arrive in Trinidad and Tobago on Sunday and is down to conduct clinics in Tobago before leaving for Guyana on December 21 for a three-day visit.

With 77 National caps under his belt, Rosario explained that he enjoys working with youths and have been doing so for several years with youngsters in the Scarborough, Ontario area where he was born and attended school.

Acknowledging that he’s inspired by youths, DeRosario said he’s fully aware of the talent which exists in Guyana and the Caribbean and is eager to exploit some of that and is desirous of making his visit an annual affair.

A prolific Major League Soccer (MLS) player, DeRosario started his career with San Jose Earthquakes in 2001 before moving to Houston Dynamo in 2006 where he spent three seasons. In 2009, he brought his talent to Toronto FC before becoming a part of the New York Red Bulls in 2011 and DC United from 2011 until this year. He is due to return to Houston Dynamo in 2014.

Earning the reputation as a clutch player in the MLS, his career tally includes two game-winning goals in MLS Cup finals, both for which he received MLS Cup MVP, and two game-winning goals in MLS All-Star games against foreign oppositions, including West Ham United.
In June, 2009, he scored a hat-trick to put Toronto FC ahead of the Montreal Impact 3–1.

Toronto had to win the game by four goals to win the Canadian Championship and move onto the CONCACAF Champions League, which they did after defeating Montreal 6–1.
The following year, after a horrible first half away at Houston and down 1–0, DeRosario scored two unanswered goals in the second half, both coming from free kicks including one in stoppage time, which kept the team’s 2010 playoff dreams alive.
