Coach Keith Tucker has made four changes to his squad ahead of Sunday's crucial World Cup qualifier against the Cayman Islands.

But while he's concentrating on defeating Caymans, BFA president Larry Mussenden is already plotting the demise of Trinidad, Bermuda's next opponent if they move on.

Bermuda drew with Cayman 1-1 on February 3 at the National Centre and now need to draw at least 2-2 against Cayman to advance to the next round.

Coach Tucker had the easiest of decisions to make when he added Khano Smith to squad.

The striker was sorely missed in the first contest due to an injury. But Smith is fully recovered and is in good preseason form for the New England Revolution.

Also added to the squad was goalkeeper Nigel Burgess, Seion Darrell and Michael Parsons. Those dropped for the Cayman game include Dwayne Adams, Jason Davis, Antonio Lowe and Aljame Zuill.

Bermuda Football Association president Larry Mussenden is so confident of a Bermuda victory that he's already preparing for the island's next round opponents, Trinidad.

"Bermuda's going to win - I have no doubt in my mind," Mussenden said. "I have talked with all the coaches, with the technical staff, and with all the players and everybody is fairly gung ho about this match.

"While the players and the coaches have to concentrate on Sunday's match, I have to concentrate on the plans for taking on Trinidad. After we defeat Cayman, all of Bermuda is going to have to focus on the powerhouse of Trinidad, who have gone on to the World Cup before."

The BFA president was so brimming with confidence that he not only expects to get past the Caymans, he's predicting that the Gombey Warriors will also slay Trinidad.

"Despite of all of that, we're going to defeat Cayman and then we're going to defeat Trinidad both here in Bermuda and in Trinidad. I say to all my Trinidadian friends here in Bermuda - beware."

The team is scheduled to fly out today with the match slated to start at 4pm Bermuda time on Sunday.

If John Barry Nusum nets one goal he will tie Shaun Goater as Bermuda's all-time leading World Cup qualifier goal scorer. Nusum has nine goals while Goater has 10.
