W Connection goes down twice against Brazilian Clubs       
Friday, 19 January 2007 
By Randy Bando...

Pro League’s Vibe CT 105 W Connection lost two matches over the last week in Brazil against Oeste FC and Quinze De Novembero as they continue their pre-season preparations in the South American continent.

Based at the Igaracu Palace Hotel in the City of Beubauru, W Connection traveled to the City of
Itapolis on Wednesday of this week, where they lost 4-1 against Oeste FC. The lone item by the Pro League Club came from Elijah Joseph when he scored a penalty in the first period, making it 2-1 at the half.

The next day W Connection made a two and a half hour trip to the City of Jau where they faced Quinze De Novembero and fell to a 5-2 defeat. Both Connection goals came in the first period with midfielder William Da Silva Oliveira registering the first and Earl Jean netting the other from the penalty spot.

Overall the players believed it was a great learning experience. Elijah Joseph told ‘ttproleague.com’, “Both matches were really tough and it was a good overall experience for us. They had the better ball possession than us and that’s how there were able to beat us. The times they scored, it was due to mistakes made in our defence,” ended Joseph.

One of W Connection’s Brazilian players Gefferson Goulart added, “Football in Brazil is all about possession. It was good for our (W Connection) players, especially the younger ones to learn this type of football. Although we lost our matches this week, I still believe we gained a lot of experience,” ended Goulart.

W Connection is expected to play again on Saturday against Uniao Barbarense FC in the City of Santa Barbra Do Oeste they continue to prepare for their CFU Club Championship semifinal match against Harbour View FC of Jamaica carded for the January 26.

Spann surgery successful

On another issue Team Administrator Raymond Mc Lean confirmed that Silvio Spann’s surgery on Wednesday was a successful one, “Silvio is back with us at the hotel after spending one day at the Biuru Hospital after his operation for observation. He would be able to start rehabilitation on the shoulder in two weeks. He will return to Trinidad with the team on Tuesday,” said Mc Lean.

Coach Stuart Charles Fervier is celebrating his birthday today with a scouting trip in the City of Biuru and would rejoin the team later today in preparation for tomorrow’s match.

Hopefully Spann recovers well and gets back on track within the next 2 months.

They are not top level clubs but that eh say anything...Alot of great players don't make it in Brazil and where they end up playing...Gilberto Silva used to play for a small team just like that before a bigger club get him after a Cup competition where the team perform well...Dem Brazilian must be playing to see if one day they might get a big club call up...I still think is a good exercise...I find our clubs should have been over in South America touring more often...even though we only playing small teams...when we learn to beat them we will beat bigger ones...Hope W was professional and tape the game to observe tactics....Go T&T

Connection on the right track.  They need to do this every year.  This is very preparation for Harbor View.  I expect Connection to triumph in that tie.

First of all there are some AMAZING Brazilians playing all over the world that many of us have never heard of.

So if there are many talented fellas in the lower div.s that doh surprise me.

Secondly this was an exhibition game b4 a majore encounter, so doh let the result tiey you up.

Efforts and tactics in exhibition games and in major games are completely different things.

U think if a major team form the UK struggle with a TT Club in TT, it go bodder dem too much.

Dat is a glorified fete match for dem.

Peace,
VB
