How did the national team get the nickname "soca warriors" ?
And what does it mean ?

Soca is a type of music derived from calypso . Like reggae is to Jamaica, soca/calypso is to Trinidad and Tobago. It is not soccer warriors it is the SOCA warriors. ;D.....North American commentators mangle the name badly so just want to clear that up also
