T&T national senior football squad will be strengthened over the next few days with the arrival of three players based in China.
Gary Glasgow is already back in the country and is back to full fitness. He resumed training yesterday afternoon with the team preparing for the Digicel Cup away match to British Virgin Islands on Sunday.

Glasgow broke his leg in a friendly match against Guatemala in August in Guatemela in which T&T lost the encounter 4-1.

Arnold Dwarika and Anthony Rougier, the other two Trinidadians based in China, are expected back home shortly and will join the squad in training.

Meanwhile, Silvio Spann and Kerry Baptiste are strong candidates to be included on the side to play against the British Virgin Islands. The team will be selected today (Wed).

Spann has recovered from a twisted right ankle—an injury he sustained in an FA Trophy match for his club Vibe CT 105 W Connection.

Baptiste, who was suffering from a damaged ligament in his ankle, has been training since last week and is almost certain to be back in the team.

Lebonon-based Errol McFarlane and Jerren Nixon is still on the injured list along with left-wing back Marlon Rojas.

Coach Bertille St Clair will be returning home from England today and will travel with the team on Friday.

It was learnt that St Clair had a good meeting with Englishman Graham Taylor, the newly-appointed technical consultant, and Lebanon-based assistant coach David Nakhid in London yesterday.

The trio met to finalise the World Cup programme for next year.
