T&T Women’s team off to USA for Futbol Internacional.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).
[/size]

A nineteen-member Trinidad and Tobago Senior Women’s team was scheduled to arrive in Alabama, USA on Thursday to take part in the Futbol Internacional 2007 in which they country will face the National Teams of USA and China.
The tournament will conclude April 28 with the championship match at Mobile's Baker High School stadium. The festival also features teams representing Argentina, Canada and Mexico.
The tournament is billed as Alabama’s largest football event outside of the Olympic Games and will reportedly pump more than US$2.8 million into six local economies across Alabama.

The T&T team will play under head coach Marlon Charles and includes several US and Canada based players such as TTFF’s  “Player of the Year” for 2006 Ayana Russell (Rochester, New York), Aveann Douglas (Rochester , NY), Ahkeela Mollon (Columbia, South Carolina), Katrina Meyer (Nashville, Tennesse), 2005 “Player of the Year” Kennya Cordner (Atlanta, Georgia), Patrice Superville (Atlanta, Georgia), Dernelle Mascall (Mobile, Alabama), Anastasia Prescott (Mobile, Alabama), Micah Mahabirsingh (Toronto, Canada), Jenelle Nedd (Armadillo, Texas), Mauricia Nicholson (Pensacola, FL), Shurell Burton (Miami) and Afiya Castle (Atlanta, Georgia). The rest of the squad includes home-based players Kimika Forbes, Gaill-Ann Thomas, Leslie-Ann James, Tasha St Louis, Niasha Reyes and Jemilia Mathlin.
 
The staff also includes former national player Ricarda Nelson as manager and assistant coach Izler Browne, who attended the women’s football workshop conducted by Mary Harvey at the 2007 CFU Congress in Curacao in march, Steve Frederick (Goalkeeping coach), David Isaacs (physio/therapist) and Dexter Williams (Equipment officer).
 
The team arrives in Pensacola on Thursday and will then journey to Huntsville to view one of the two opening games between Canada/Mexico and USA/China. The locals will then train on Monday before taking on the USA Under 21 team on April 24 and then depart for the Tuscaloosa Sheraton Hotel before taking on China on April26. The finals of the tournament will be played on April 28.
The T&T senior team last played in a competitive tournament at the quarter finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, going down 3-0 despite a gritty showing to Mexico in Miami in November last year. They previously topped the CFU qualifying group ahead of Dominican Republic and Suriname in September, 2006.

Isn't it time we find a solid female coach to work with our  ladies' program? Charmaine Hooper!!!!! fuh the first female football national coach.
lOOK HOW MUCH  'MAN' IN THAT COACHING PARTY!!! YUH ALMOST HAVE ENOUGH TO FORM ATEAM.
NO FEMALES IN THE CONTINGENT?
Ah feel we  missing the boat here not realizing that 'gender' does  play some part in the team psyche here. Coaching female athlethes  requires ah whole different set of undertstanding in addition to just imparting skills and knowledge. performance could be hampered by......oh well ah go leave this alone.

The majority of female players prefer to play for male coaches. It's true that there are some differences in the psyche of the female athlete, but if they are treated as athletes to meet the demands of the game then there is not much of a problem with them being female.
What makes you think that Charmaine Hooper can coach or has the coaching experience or expertise to coach a national team? She was a great player and is a fantastic person...coach??? perhaps!!! Great influence...YES

What kinda preparation has this team had??
Are we going into a tournament against the likes of USA and China with a team assembled  a week or two before the first game??

i went and watch a scrimmage game with the womens team vs a west florida xi.....nice game for the girls to see what they have to do to get prepared for the tournamet...the score ended up 2-1 in we favor, Dernelle Mascall and Jinelle Nedd got the goals.....individually there was some good stuff....they still have to work on their collectiveness and organisation as a team...they should do good as the tournament progresses... dont expect any miracles though....good prospects for the future though...best of luck...they practice this morning and they have a board work session this afternoon...i will keep you guys posted bless...

I don't know bout that trini heritage... I hear she is Guyanese..... In any event, I really like Coach Charles.... He has the girls training and focusing on the proper methods..... and he is a nice man with a good football head on his shoulders..... Charmain's a champ, but we're cool for now, I think......
