Cuba next stop for Warriors

Ian Prescott Hamilton ┬


Tuesday, June 24th 2008
 
 
 AN away match in Havana against Fidel Castro's Cuba on August 20 is the next step┬ for Trinidad and Tobago on the road to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

Immediately after beating Bermuda 2-0 in Hamilton on Sunday night to advance 3-2 on aggregate after losing the first leg 2-1, T&T team manager David Muhammad said the victory marked a new beginning for the Soca Warriors.

"This┬  is a new start for the next stage of qualifying matches, which begin on August 20 against Cuba in Cuba.┬ After playing Cuba, we have the first of our home games against Guatemala on September 6. Then, after that, we travel to Chicago to play the United States on September 10, and on October 11 and 15 we have two other matches against Guatemala (away) and the USA (at home).

"And we end it all on (Wednesday) November 19 against Cuba at home. So the deja vu of a November 19 home game for Trinidad and Tobago is relived once again," said Muhammad, referring to the infamous match against the USA on November 19, 1989 when, needing just a draw to qualify for the 1990 World Cup in Italy, T&T lost 1-0 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Muhammad said going into Sunday's World Cup qualifier away to Bermuda, the Soca Warriors were always confident of┬  overturning a 1-2 deficit.

"Over the last few days in the camp there was a lot of reflection over the last match. We were confident all along that we would be able to achieve the required victory and that is exactly what we did."

Dis is de second time we will be playing Cuba on dat date. We played dem on Nov 19, 2003 and we beat dem 2-1 on a goal by Whitley, and an own-goal by de Cubans. Apart from dat 1989 loss, we have won the three other matches that we have played on that date.

Might as well do an all-inclusive package for 7-nights on de week of the game in Varadero or another beach town in Matanzas province, since Havana is jess a two-hour drive from dey and yuh could rent a vehicle or it have buses with guides going there real regular.

I eh know from T&T but from Canada is about $600 fuh a package. I met others who had pay $400 and thing. It might work out to be cheaper than just dropping in fuh a two days to see the game and fly back home, why not make a week long trip out of it and eat and drink like ah king

and well hard luck for allyuh men from the USA ..

At this time, I'm in for that lime oui. Tomorrow I'll check on  flight to TNT in late July from Trinidad to Cuba and then back to Canada.

Once  venue is confirmed and  game time and JW ticket outlets are ready to go...let's seriously look at rallying Brownsugar, TrinCana Coco, KandiTT and the Carib girls for this all inclusive .

De original link is redtag.ca, I eh think that link chinee post dey working. If yuh go to the last minute deals tab and then alll inclusives, yuh go get fares fuh under $600 and thing. A good bet is to probably secure yuh game tickets early and then hit up the site closer to the game date for the last minute fares
