Walsall midfielder Brandon Comley thoroughly enjoyed his time with Montserrat and is proud with what the nation has achieved.
Comley, alongside captain Donervon Daniels, helped Montserrat retain their Nations League B status.
The 28-year-old is noticing improvements and was delighted to represent them once again.
“It’s a great experience to be called up every time I have been,” Comley said.
“I’ve been there a few times now and going back home is like a breath of fresh air.
“They say it’s like a third world but I think it’s the first world out there, it’s beautiful. The air is beautiful, the scenery is beautiful and to go out there and play a game with people I have grown and achieved a lot with, changing the country’s fortunes and seeing the infrastructure change from things that we’re doing so it’s a great reward to see those things happen.”
Comley quickly switched his focus to the Saddlers upon his return and played 90 minutes in the 0-0 draw with Forest Green Rovers.
The midfielder was frustrated that the team didn’t quite do enough to gain three points but was pleased they kept a clean sheet for the first time since early October.
“It’s something that we strive for, we don’t want to concede any goals,” he commented.
“It gives you a big boost to go on and win the game but unfortunately at the other end we weren’t as clinical but it’s definitely something to build on.
“Normally we’re firing up top, every time we get chances, we’re normally taking them but unfortunately (on Saturday) that wasn’t the case but the boys at the back stayed solid and at least we came away from the game with something.
“Hopefully on Tuesday we can mash the two together and get back going in the right direction which is up the table.”
The Saddlers will be hoping to get back to winning ways tomorrow evening against Barrow.
Pete Wild’s side are fifth in Sky Bet League Two and are on a 10-match unbeaten streak in all competitions but Comley insists runs are there to be ended and he backs the Saddlers to go and impose themselves against the Bluebirds.
“We go into every game confident,” he said.
“We know we’ve got the ability to go and break down teams and score goals so we’re not going to worry too much about a run. A Run is there to be broken so hopefully we can be the team that can go and do that.”
