Nathaniel Garcia Thread.
« on: July 24, 2017, 12:47:32 AM »
Garcia aims to cement Senior Team selection.
TTFA Media.


Central FC midfielder Nathaniel Garcia is eager to make a strong impression in national colours as he attempts to show head coach Dennis Lawrence what he has to offer as the build up continues towards the September 1st World Cup qualifier against Honduras at the Ato Boldon Stadium.

So far, Garcia has done his part, completing a week of training and earning selection on the 19-man squad that will depart today (Monday) for Guayaquil to take on Ecuador in an international friendly on Wednesday. The team will arrive in Guayaquil on Monday night and will have one training session on Tuesday ahead of gameday.

“It’s been a good week of preparation for us,” Garcia told TTFA Media.. “The step up has been good. We’ve all worked hard and tried to follow the instructions of the coach. I’ve had a chance to be around the training before and now this is another opportunity for me to really make a good impression because I’d love to get a look for the World Cup qualifying games in September,” Garcia added.

“The current squad has a lot of local-based players so we are all trying to push for selection and take on board everything the coaches are passing on in the sessions. There’s a lot for us to absorb in these sessions and it’s really getting us in good shape for international football. The level is different,” Garcia noted.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Gokulam Kerala sign Trinidad and Tobago international Nathaniel Garcia

Gokulam Kerala sign Trinidad and Tobago international Nathaniel Garcia
By Abhishek Kundu (sportskeeda.com)


Bolstering their squad for the upcoming I-League 2019-20 season, Gokulam Kerala have signed Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder Nathaniel Garcia. The 26-year-old has three international caps to his name and is making the move from Point Fortin Civic FC, which finished eighth in the 2018 Trinidad and Tobago Pro League.

Nathaniel becomes the third player from the Carribean nation to sign for Gokulam Kerala following the footsteps of Andre Ettiene and Marcus Joseph Jr. Both the players featured in the 2019 Durand Cup title-winning squad with Marcus bagging the top goalscorer award after scoring 11 goals in 5 matches.

Nathaniel made his debut for Trinidad and Tobago national team last year coming off the bench in a friendly against Martinique. He was also a part of the national team squad which played two CONCACAF Nations League A matches against Martinique but remained as an unused substitute.

In his club career, Nathaniel played in the CONCACAF Champions League against MLS sides LA Galaxy, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and Sporting Kansas City. He also won three successive TT Pro League titles with Central FC.

Continuing their pre-season preparations after winning the Durand Cup, Gokulam Kerala will visit Maharashtra to play friendly against ISL side Mumbai City FC on Friday. They will take on Bengaluru FC next followed by Chennaiyin FC and Jamshedpur FC.

Despite losing some key Indian players in VP Suhair and Arjun Jayaraj, their foreigners are expected to light up this edition of the I-League. Alongside Marcus Joseph Jr, Andre Ettiene, and Nathaniel Garcia, they have former Delhi Dynamos and Chennaiyin FC midfielder Bruno Pelissari and former Mohun Bagan striker Henry Kisekka.

Indian players like Ubaid CK, Ashok Singh, Myron Mendes, Malemngamba Meetei, and Dharmaraj Ravanan will supplement the foreign signings for Gokulam Kerala in I-League this season.

Garcia joins Joseph, Ettiene in India.
T&T Guardian Reports.


T&T in­ter­na­tion­al mid­field­er, 26-year-old Nathaniel Gar­cia has signed with In­di­an I-League club Goku­lam Ker­ala for the 2019-2020 sea­son mak­ing the move from Pt Fortin Civic FC, which fin­ished eighth in the 2018 T&T Pro League.

Nathaniel be­comes the third play­er from the T&T to sign for Goku­lam Ker­ala fol­low­ing the foot­steps of An­dre Et­tiene and Mar­cus Joseph Jr, who both fea­tured in the 2019 Du­rand Cup ti­tle-win­ning squad with the lat­ter bag­ging the top goalscor­er award af­ter scor­ing 11 goals in five match­es.

Gar­cia made his de­but for T&T last year com­ing off the bench in a friend­ly against Mar­tinique and was al­so a part of the na­tion­al team squad which played two Con­ca­caf Na­tions League A match­es against Mar­tinique but re­mained as an un­used sub­sti­tute.

So far in his club ca­reer, he has played in the CON­CA­CAF Cham­pi­ons League against US Ma­jor League Soc­cer's LA Galaxy, Van­cou­ver White­caps FC, and Sport­ing Kansas City and won three suc­ces­sive T&T Pro League ti­tles with Cen­tral FC.

Con­tin­u­ing their pre-sea­son prepa­ra­tions af­ter win­ning the Du­rand Cup, Goku­lam Ker­ala will vis­it Ma­ha­rash­tra to play friend­ly against ISL side Mum­bai City FC on Fri­day. They will take on Ben­galu­ru FC next fol­lowed by Chen­naiyin FC and Jamshed­pur FC.

Look­ing ahead to the new sea­son, Joseph has set his eyes on the I-League.

"It was a good feel­ing to be the top scor­er of Du­rand Cup. If you don't score goals, you don't win match­es."

Joseph was the top goalscor­er in the 2018 T&T Pro League, where he net­ted 18 goals for W Con­nec­tion and helped them win the ti­tle and the 28-year-old hopes to repli­cate the same with Goku­lam Ker­ala in the I-League this sea­son.

He said, "Yes, I can be­come the top goalscor­er in I-League. I al­ways do my best to score goals and help my team. My goal is al­ways to score goals and be the best play­er that I can be."

Re­flect­ing on his dis­play for T&T in the 1-1 draw against Mar­tinique in CON­CA­CAF Na­tions League en­counter, Joseph said, "It is al­ways a great feel­ing to play for your coun­try. If you rep­re­sent your coun­try, it means you are one of the top play­ers (in your coun­try)."

Along­side Mar­cus, the oth­er T&T play­ers who fea­tured in the squad were Gar­cia (Goku­lam Ker­ala), Daneil Cyrus (Mo­hun Bagan), and Mar­vin Phillip (NE­RO­CA).

The quin­tet of Radan­fah Abu Bakr (Churchill Broth­ers), Robert Primus (Churchill Broth­ers), Taryk Samp­son (NE­RO­CA), Willis Plaza (Churchill Broth­ers), and An­dre Et­tiene (Goku­lam Ker­ala) are some oth­er play­ers from the Caribbean na­tion who will al­so ply their trade in this sea­son's I-League.

In terms of set­ting tar­gets for the pre-sea­son, Joseph said, "I don't have any tar­get on the num­ber of goals I wish to score in these pre-sea­son games.

"Once I get a chance, I will score. If I get one chance, I will score one. If I get two, I will score two. If I get three, I will score three. This is how foot­ball is. You just take your chances. These are just warm-up games. You want to see how fit you are and at what lev­el you are. All these teams are top teams. So, you have to give good per­for­mances against them," he signs off.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Anytime Judah Garcia ends up in India or Indonesia or Malaysia or Thailand or Vietnam or the Phillipines or anywhere in the AFC bar the obvious places, he would be receiving BAD guidance laced with the seduction of a paycheck.

Gokulam Kerala's Nathaniel Garcia confident of I-League title win

Gokulam Kerala's Nathaniel Garcia confident of I-League title win
By Nisanth V Easwar (goal.com)


26-year-old Nathaniel Jude Garcia is the third player from Trinidad & Tobago to feature for I-League club Gokulam Kerala this season. The other two are star striker Marcus Joseph and towering centre-back Andre Etienne.

He has already made an impact for the Malabarians, scoring a goal against Bangladesh Premier League champions Bashundhara Kings in the Sheikh Kamal Cup 2019 last month. After spending several years in Trinidad and Tobago, Gokulam Kerala is a brave step for the forward.

"I wanted to know if the place (Kerala) is friendly and comfortable to play football. Marcus is a friend of mine from a very young age, he told me that I can do well at Gokulam and they needed me," he told Goal.

"This season is very important for me. Once I perform, my name goes back home. Once I start scoring goals, I may get a call to the national team again," Garcia, who has featured for his national team in friendlies, added.

The Malabarians have assembled a strong squad for the 2019-20 season of the I-League after a mediocre first two seasons. They have started strongly this time around, winning the Durand Cup and also reaching the semi-final of the Sheikh Kamal Cup.

"It has been a very good experience so far. I expected to win (Sheikh Kamal Cup) because we were the favourites but football is a funny game. We win some, you lose some.

"I really do believe we can win the title this season. But the game is played on the day. We are very confident, we are training really hard and the team has bonded and gelled well. Everyone understands each other," he said.

Garcia is expected to play a big part in the Malabarian journey to glory.

Probably, due to the higher quality coaches and the odd quality foreign player. When our Trini's go to India they tend to do very well, suggesting it's at best a level comparable to the Pro League

Quality is also a function of organization and commercialization. That being the case ...

However, some of the football is pedestrian.

I'm somewhat surprised that the prize $ in the I-League isn't more.  The winner takes less than $150,000 US and 2nd takes $80,000 US. That's about 300K for the Top 4 collectively. Noteworthy.
