Trinidad and Tobago head coach Dennis Lawrence has named a provisional training squad to begin preparations on Monday for the upcoming international friendly against Ecuador scheduled for July 26th in Guayaquil, Ecuador.
Trinidad and Tobago Senior Men’s Team will face Ecuador in an international friendly in Guayaquil, Ecuador on July 26th. The affair was confirmed by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association on Tuesday night and will serve as part of the team’s build up to the September 1st World Cup qualifying match at home to Honduras.
KENWYNE JONES’ injury and subsequent replacement by Jamille Boatswain, moments before the start of last Tuesday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup CONCACAF Zone Final Round qualifier between Trinidad and Tobago and Costa Rica, may have seen T&T attacking qualities more frequently throughout the game, according to ex-national youth team coach Keith Look Loy.
San Juan Jabloteh winger Nathan Lewis listened closely to the instructions coming from Dennis Lawrence. From the first few days of the residential training camp, it was becoming evident that Lawrence had his ideas about where Lewis would fit into the plans for the team heading into the World Cup qualifier against United States. And Lewis was catching on, session by session.
“There is a huge amount of belief in the camp”
That has been the echoing sentiments in the Trinidad and Tobago corner following last Tuesday’s World Cup qualifying effort in San Jose, Costa Rica.
“When it came to the physical aspect of the game, I used to cap out. I didn’t like training. I was a fat boy.”
JAMILLE Boatswain shares the disappointment of his Trinidad and Tobago teammates in not having coming away with a point from their event-filled World Cup qualifying match against Costa Rica on Tuesday. And like coach Dennis Lawrence, he is determined not to give up in the battle to get to the finals in Russia 2018.
With just over two months to go before this country’s next 2018 World Cup qualifier at home to Honduras, National Senior Team head coach Dennis Lawrence is putting his pieces together in anticipation of what is set to be a game that could swing the momentum in this country’s direction for the remaining matches on the schedule.
All the goals were scored in the first half as Costa Rica (3W-2D-1L, 11 points) earned a 2-1 win over visiting Trinidad & Tobago (1-0-5, 3) in the final round of CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday night at the Estadio Nacional.
