Acting Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation president Lennox Watson has assured that the local governing body will be present at today's national football consultation, which will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Movie Towne, Port of Spain.
"Overcoming pressure is one of the most important things in sport."
DUE to the “Soca Warriors” abrupt exit from FIFA 2014 World Cup qualifying, Minister of Sport Anil Roberts revealed that citizens should have a right to voice their opinion and submit suggestions on what should be the next step for the national squad.
THE Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) has sent its foreign head coach Otto Pfister on leave even though his contract ends on December 31, for what they have termed official leave; and consequently has recalled the services of Guyana’s head coach, Trinidadian Jamal Shabazz from his loan agreement with the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) according to the Trinidad Express newspaper recently.
Following the Soca Warriors 2-1 loss to Guyana which knocked T&T out of the 2014 World Cup, T&T football must now wake up to the reality that a Guyanese supporter is reported as saying:“dis nah lang time.”
Six officials, all from the Caribbean, have been banned by Fifa for their roles in a bribery scandal.
Outspoken Minister of Sports, Anil Roberts is of the personal view today’s Soca Warriors 2014 Fifa World Cup Brazil qualifier against Guyana should be the last for German-born coach Otto Pfister.
And Anthony Harford, chairman of the Sport Ministry-approved Authorisation Committee, said the TTFF may receive a total of $1.3 million.
The failed 2014 Brazil World Cup campaign officially comes to an end for Trinidad and Tobago today. But the Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs has already gone into development mode.
