Trinidad and Tobago's  National Under-20 footballers ended their training camp in Sao Paolo, Brazil on a winning note with a 2-1 victory over Angolan professional club CRD Libolo on Tuesday.
Preparing for next month's final round of qualifying for the 2009 FIFA World Youth Championship, the T&T squad, coached by Zoran Vranes, got their goals from Sean De Silva in the 61st minute and an own goal ten minutes after the African senior pro outfit had equalised in the 73rd.

De Silva put T&T ahead with a well-executed left footed shot from 22 yards out in what was T&T's strongest showing of the tour. Vranes later summed up the trip as a valuable training exercise.

"We have gained tremendous experience in the three matches. We had the chance to work at excellent facilities and get some strong competition from the teams we played against here.""I think our last game which we won was maybe against the most experienced team but we worked very hard to get the win, which is good for the confidence of the players," said Vranes.
