Coach Barnes said that it was a great feeling and the guys played a wonderful tournament...

Tyrone Marshall said that not having qualified for the World Cup, he was aware that support was not going to be the best, but this win has restored some respect for the team.

The Grenadian's player/coach and captain, Anthony Modeste said that they are proud of their achievements, even though they lost, they don't feel like losers. Modeste is also captain of Digicel Premier League champions, Portmore United. He thanks Digicel for organising a wonderful tournament as well as Captain Burrel and the JFF (Jamaica Football Federation). Modeste also congratulates Barnes and Marshall saying that they are worthy champions.

The Boyz will now be focusing their attention to the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which will be held in the USA next year.
