Tuffy Compared to Drogba in USA football

No Comments

National striker Jermaine 'Tuffy' Anderson recently returned from a successful trial stint in the US for Indy Eleven, a new franchise in the North American Soccer League, where he was compared to Ivorian legend Didier Drobga.

According to the Waterhouse player, his success in finding the back of the net, and perhaps his solid frame, similar to the current Galatasary hitman Drogba, led to the comparison being made during the week-long stint.


"I scored in every training session. They called me Drogba," Anderson said.

The player was immediately back in action shortly after returning to the island, scoring two penalties that sealed a 2-1 come-from-behind win for Waterhouse against Sporting Central Academy in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) round-six action at Waterhouse Stadium.

Showed Composure

Anderson, who is the team's talisman, showed composure in scoring from the penalty spot in the 56th and 65th minute.

Earlier, the Clarendon-based Sporting Central took an early lead when Cory Hylton beat Waterhouse goalkeeper Kelson Cousins to give his team a 1-0 lead at the break.

Two-goal hero Tuffy Anderson said that it was important for the team to win the game as the league race was tight.

"It is my point of duty to score goals. I wasn't here for about a week as I was at trial. The team (Waterhouse) trained without me, but I know how the team plays, so I came back and did my job. We have to keep up with the leaders. It was important to win tonight," Anderson said.
