Pfister is in an extremely difficult situation. He had no friendly matches in which to see the foreign-based players as the only match provided by the TTFF - against India - fell on a "non-FIFA" date. He is therefore required to establish his opinion on these players, how to use them, and to win official WCQ matches at one and the same time. Correctly, like all of us, he is satisfied that we won three points against Bermuda but, like all of us, could hardly be happy with the performance of the team as a whole, and specific players, in particular. I am sure we will not see Warner again, but Pfister HAD to use him - despite his admiration for Marvin Phillip - in order to SEE him in a MATCH situation, as opposed to training. and this is only one such conclusion. So the primary and secondary objective of the match were definitely achieved - 1) to win, and 2) to have a first-hand look at players he had never seen live before.
The man is a vastly experienced - and successful - campaigner. On to Barbados, where we trust we will take the points and continue the building process.
