United States-based forward Cameron Roget hadn’t played a competitive international football match until the recent Olympic Qualifying first round in Dominica but once he got the chance from head coach Angus Eve he proudly put on the national shirt and gave his all for the red, white and black.
He started T&T’s final Group match against the hosts and scored a crucial opener to set the pace for T&T’s 4-0 win which pushed them through to the CFU final round in November.
Previously Roget had been in the provisional squad for the T&T Under 17s which played at the 2007 FIFA Under 17 World Cup in South Korea. “It was really great being with some of my teammates again. I hadn’t seen them in some time but the chemistry was there and everything just clicked once we were on the field, the camaraderie was definitely there. “Scoring my first goal for T&T was definitely a great feeling,” Roget said.
Currently attached to US club San Diego Boca, Roget is intent on moving up the professional ranks either to the MLS or even the T&T Pro League.” “Boca had an okay season last year but I’m looking at any possible options.
My dream is to play for Arsenal in England but if the MLS opens a door then I’ll definitely take it or even in T&T. “My ambition is to continue playing for T&T and move on to their senior team,” Roget added.
Roget says his commitment remains with T&T unlike another US-based player in Aaron Maund who played for T&T in the 2007 World Cup but then switched associations in order to join the US team at the 2009 FIFA Under 20 World Cup.
