Godinho eager for Hearts return

2nd July 2019

Marcus Godinho believes his international exploits can stand him in good stead for the season ahead at Hearts.

The 22-year-old started three of Canada’s four matches at the CONCACAF Gold Cup as they reached the quarter-final stage, only to be eliminated 3-2 by Haiti.

Marcus admits that although the competition didn’t finish they way he would have liked it to, his involvement has already given him a taste for action and he’s eyeing up the season ahead at Tynecastle.

Speaking to the Official Hearts website, he said: “I’m obviously disappointed with the result and to be leaving the tournament at the quarter final stage, but overall it’s been an amazing experience.

“I’m really proud to have won another three caps for my country and hopefully I can go on to win many more.

“I haven’t had a break at all but I’m already looking forward to the season ahead.

“I’ll join up with the first-team squad soon and the hard work begins again, and I can’t wait to pull on that Hearts jersey again in season 2019/20.”
