National Team captain Dwight Yorke will be part of preparations with the Trinidad and Tobago National Senior Team from Friday (May 29) after being carded to join the live-in camp at the Le Grand Courlan Hotel this evening.
Sunderland midfielder Carlos Edwards meantime was already involved, taking part in Thursday evening’s training session at the Dwight Yorke Stadium.
In some further news coming out of the Soca Warriors camp, striker Stern John left for the United States on Thursday for treatment on a back injury and is unlikely to feature on June 6 against Costa Rica. Team Doctor Terrence Babwah said that with conventional treatment, the T&T forward could be out for up to four weeks.
“Stern has a pinch nerve in the back and has left for the United States for treatment. It is unlikely that he can take part in any football for at least another four weeks. He will undergo special treatment there and with conventional treatment, it usually takes up to four weeks,” Babwah told TTFF Media.
The remaining players scheduled to join the T&T camp are DC United defender Avery John and San Jose striker Cornell Glen who comes in on May 31. Glen is the third striker in the team alongside Jones and Jason Scotland. The ex- Jabloteh forward was invited and included in the squad by Latapy since last week, prior to John’s injury.
Glen signed officially with San Jose Earthquakes this week.
"Cornell brings a change of pace to the team that we don’t have right now. He is a good-all around player,” Quakes General Manager John Doyle said. "He has been able to score goals at the international level and we are looking forward to seeing the impact that he makes in MLS.
