Yorke: One loss is not the end of the road

Former national football captain Dwight Yorke voiced his support towards the national women’s team prior to their December 2 final World Cup qualifier against Ecuador.

Women Warriors reignite the passion

The events of Tuesday evening was definitely a signal of renaissance for T&T football caused by the impact of this country’s national women’s footballers in their decisive Fifa Women’s World Cup qualifying match at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain.
