Mexican-based midfielder Jomal Williams put in a decent shift for this country’s senior team in the recent 2-2 draw with Grenada in St George’s in what was his first appearance under head coach Dennis Lawrence.
Williams played a part in T&T’s equaliser scored by Jabloteh forward Nathan Lewis in the second half after T&T fell behind before the break.
“The performance was good in the sense that were able to come back from a goal down and take the lead but unfortunately we let in the late second goal which was disappointing,” Williams said. “I was personally pleased to have set up a goal because as a winger that is one of your main jobs.”
“We took some time to feel out the Grenadian team but once we did, we began to take control of the game. The game helped us to execute some of the things the coach wants and play to his plan. All in all I think it was a good game as a build up to the qualifiers in June,” said the Murcielagos midfielder who also had club teammates Shahdon Winchester and Yohance Marshall alongside him the start team.
“A lot of the local players are now in preseason so the coach had a chance to work with them for a few days and he knows what he has to work with now for the games next month,” Williams added. The T&T senior team will resume camp later this month in preparation for the June 8th World Cup qualifier against the US at Dick’s Sporting Good Park in Colorado.
