The inclusion of third and  fourth division team players has led to some criticism after players from third division leaders Titans have been left out of the squad. Titans who last December beat Rock 54 (seen as the Under 21 squad) by 5-3 have a 100% record in the league, six points ahead of second placed Rock 54 and with their top goal scorer, Olivero also the division’s top scorer.

The announcement of the selected players has led to social media criticisms over the exclusion of some players some believe should have been had a try out at least.

It has also been reported that some players have been approached to play for the national team but have rejected the offer, opting out of being selected. Many due to work commitments which makes it difficult for them to commit to the training and commitment to play on the day.

Details about the matches have as yet not been released, with the dates times and teams playing still not publicly announced.
