Silvio Spann, Marlon Rojas settle

Defender Marlon Rojas made his first appearance for MLS side Real Salt Lake in a 2-2 draw with Colorado Rapids on Saturday.

The former Police and Joe Public player set up the equalising goal for forward Jason Kreis in the 70th minute.

Rojas has been with the team for the past week after recovering from a hamstring injury and is now fully fit for T&T’s match against Guatemala on Saturday.

“Things have gone really good. I am settling down in the city itself and preparations with the team have gone well. We have some really decent players in the team like Jason Kreis and Andy Williams out of Jamaica,” Rojas said.

Meantime, young midfielder Silvio Spann is coming off three appearances with Yokohama FC in the Japanese Pro League. He is making his return to the T&T line up since his last appearance in the World Cup qualifying semi-final round last year.

“The league there is very fast paced and as such I’ve got to be on my toes right through and stay injury free.

The quality is good as well which makes it a very competitive League but so far I’ve fitted in well with the team and my hope is just continue keeping my game up both for them and the national team,” Spann said after training with the T&T team for the first time on Monday.
