Prince scores for the Princesses in 1-0 win.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


T&T Under-20 Women footballers edged their Jamaican counterparts 1-0 at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella yesterday and will now head into a live-in camp to enhance preparation for the CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship, scheduled for January 18-28, 2018 in T&T.

Like in their opening game last week, the Soca Princesses got a single strike, this time from the boot of their captain Dennecia Prince in the 3rd minute which they held on to until the final whistle, but not without surviving a major scare in the dying moments of the game as goalkeeper Klil Keshwar had to pull off a diving save to preserve the scoreline.

T&T coach Jamaal Shabazz said there were lots of positives to take from the match such as the players’ ability to mesh in-spite of the fact they the locals were only recently joined by several foreign based players. He said after just one week with the team he was encouraged by what they saw from the incoming players, but believed a lot more work is needed to be done on combination plays and fitness.

Shabazz who took over the coaching duties from Italian Carolina Morace, said he could not make predictions on the team’s readiness for the tournament in January but feels he would be in a better position to do so after the camp next month at which time he will have the opportunity to work with both the overseas based players who joined the team last week, along with the locals.

“When you think about when the tournament will be held and that we have had just one week with the girls, but yet we were able to beat the Jamaicans twice, it can only be encouraging for us.” Shabazz explained.

His team will intensify its preparation in the coming weeks and is expected to face Venezuela in a practice match or two in December.

Shabazz said attempts are also being made to secure a few other international friendly matches before his girls head into the tournament as hosts.

The Soca Princesses have been drawn in Group A of the tournament with Costa Rica and Canada as well as an undetermined Caribbean team. They need to be among the top three teams from two groups of four teams each, to qualify for the 2018 Women’s Under 20 World Cup in France in August.

Teams

T&T Starting XI - Klil Keshwar, Crystal Molineaux, Natisha John, Dennecia Prince (captain), Aaliyah Prince, Ranae Ward, Lauren Duffy, Sydney Boiselle, Alexis Fortune, Brittney Williams, Cecily Stoute.

Subs: Kenedie St Mary, Amaya Ellis, Renah Campbell, Megan Rampersad, Laurelle Theodore, Jaasiel Forde, Shenieka Paul, Kedie Johnson, Chelcy Ralph, Malaika Dedier.

Greg’s gameday ritual is conversations with God.
By Shaun Fuentes (Guardian).


Recent national team call up Greg Ranjitsingh pulled off another solid performance in the USL Cup Final as his Louisville City defeated Swope Park Rangers 1-0 on Monday night.

Ranjitsingh saved two penalties in his team’s win over New York Red Bulls II the previous weekend to book their place in the USL Cup final.

The custodian, who missed out on T&T’s two friendlies with Guyana and Grenada after being initially selected, spoke about his work with club psychologist Kevin Chapman.

He spoke of cues that his teammates had developed for gameday, saying his was having internal “conversations with God” during the national anthem, as well as the feeling he gets while in the tunnel before the teams walk out.

“Nowadays when I go into games, I don’t have nerves at all because I’m always super happy,” he said. “Before games, I’m buzzing. (O’Connor) will tell us, ‘No one will die on that pitch tonight. Nothing bad is going to happen. Play like you’re a kid on the front lawn, 8 years old without a worry.’”

The PFL and their agents need to train give their players some PR training.
Professionalism is really non-existent sometimes

Regardless of what you think about a decision, you cant seriously throw a tantrum like these and get away with it.
