The Trinidad and Tobago senior men's team will arrive in Chicago just after midday today ahead of their opening 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup opening match against Guatemala on Thursday at Soldier Field.

Head coach Stephen Hart is expected to conduct a light session this evening at a nearby training field before the “Soca Warriors” run out for a one-hour training session at the match venue the following day.

Skipper Kenwyne Jones and his team will be hoping to see evidence of support for the team in the stadiums for the games and already one person has guaranteed this for the game against Cuba in Phoenix.

Dr. Anil Ramnanan, Consul General of the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago of Miami, visited the team during their training camp in Fort Lauderdale and looked on at the 1-0 victory over Haiti at the Central Broward Regional Park. Ramnanan revealed that there will be buses takings T&T nationals from Florida to Phoenix to support the team on July 12.

Meantime, goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams is focusing on the Guatemala affair.

“The training camp here in Fort Lauderdale had its benefits for us. We have been growing in confidence. The players have been coming together and really focusing now on what is ahead of us.

The level of preparation before this camp was not perfect but now we have had some valuable time together. The vibe and atmosphere in the camp has gotten better. There are lots of competitions for places in the team and that is always good heading into matches like the ones we are preparing for,”Wiliams said.

“It’s been a pleasure seeing any national team play up here. We are very happy to welcome this national football team as they move on to play their first game in Chicago, North Carolina and Charlotte thereafter,” Ramnanan said. 

“We feel with the institutional success of TT football over the decades, the tenacity and hard work, the innate talent and skill, the coaching and the effort these guys have put in, we must show our appreciation to the team. We want to say that the TT nationals abroad are here to support our national team and we will see them as we travel on the road in large numbers as we offer our support to them. We have already purchased block tickets and will be going there in numbers to show our support to the boys. 

“There is a burning desire for people to see their national teams participating out there. With football being the most popular sport in the world and gaining so much popularity here in the US it’s even more welcoming and heartening to see our national team here. The United States is looking forward to Trinidad and Tobago success over here,” Ramnanan said. Meantime, goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams is focussing on the Guatemala affair.
