Senior men to face New Zealand in Port of Spain on October 15th.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA).


Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior National Men’s Team will face off with New Zealand’s Senior Team in a friendly international at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on October 15th

Local fans will have their first opportunity to see the ‘Warriors” in action up close since their promising run at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup and third place finish at the recent OSN Cup in Saudi Arabia.

New Zealand earned second place at the OSN Cup. In their first ever visit to this country, the "All Whites" will be preparing for its final World Cup qualification matches against the 4th place CONCACAF hexagonal participant and is keen to experience a CONCACAF environment.

Trinidad and Tobago head coach Stephen Hart meantime said that he was anticipating what would be his debut home match at the helm of the National Team since taking up the job in June.

“It’s a good international for us particularly as we are hoping to continue with the intentions of playing at least one international game per month,” Hart told TTFA Media.

“So far we have seen progress but it is important to have the group together at every affordable time and this game will provide us with another opportunity to work with the players and see them in a match situation against a respectable opponent in New Zealand which finished unbeaten at the 2010 World Cup Finals,” Hart added.

TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee disclosed that this is yet another collaborative effort between TTFA, Ministry of Sport and Youth Affairs, and SPORTT to help bring the country's most popular sport back to prominence.

“We are extremely pleased to announce that there will be an international friendly between our National Men’s Senior Team and New Zealand later this month.

Following discussions with the New Zealand FA last month, an agreement was reached and we are also wish to acknowledge the support of the Ministry of Sport and the Sportt Company for their commitment to the National Team’s program and this particular match on October 15th,” TTFA President Tim Kee stated earlier today.

“We are making progress in several areas of our development as was evident with the championship run of our Women’s Under 17 team in Haiti this week where they were crowned Caribbean champions and our Senior Men’s Team has also shown signs of advancement.

The Minister of Sport Mr Anil Roberts has recognized this and we are pleased with the support that he and his Ministry continue to offer the TTFA,” Tim Kee continued.

Further announcements will be made in due course relating to ticket prices, points of sale, as well as initiatives that will allow patrons attending the match to make contributions towards a fund to assist National Team defender Akeem Adams who is currently warded in ICU at the Varosmajori Heart Clinic in Hungary after suffering a heart attack last week and is awaiting a heart transplant.

Whilst in camp as their preparations for the World Cup playoffs continue, the All Whites will also play two matches against Mexican and US club opposition to allow coach Ricki Herbert one last chance to work through his on-field options for the penultimate international before November.

New Zealand will play Mexican Liga MX club Querétaro on October 9 and meet Major League Soccer’s Chivas USA three days later.

“The camp in Los Angeles could well replicate how the All Whites approach the challenge in November,” said NZF High Performance Director Fred de Jong.

“There’s still a lot of water to go under the bridge in terms of knowing who our opposition are and what unique logistical challenges they will present but basing the team in the US then flying in for that first leg is very much an option.”

“It’s similar to what the All Whites did in Dubai before the 2009 playoff against Bahrain so it’s a scenario the group has some familiarity with.

“The difference is the two club games, which will give Ricki the freedom to try a few things in a training match situation then make decisions on the make-up of his side to face Trinidad and Tobago.”

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

Would like to see Rundell Winchester given a chance and Jamal Jack. I have and affinity towards Tobago players but these two should make the grade. Still we need competition for left back places so hope Hart can sort that out or someone steps up

Since the Kiwis are preparing for a World Cup Qualifying play-off match, I'm sure part of the agreement is for us to field a competitive side.

The sentiment to contribute to Akeem's cause is the same, but my suggestion was more of a marketing pitch. Also, maybe it's me, but the way the quote is worded makes it appear like an afterthought. First impression is everything and it's a fickle public we are dealing with. I would inform the public from the onset that a percentage of each ticket sold would go towards Akeem's cause with the hope that they will be more inclined to attend the game.

I imagine that it was an after thought. TTFA have been negotiating this game since they went to Saudi. Now they have the game agreed, I guess they just wanted to do something. Their first aim will be to recover the costs of hosting the game, which is only right and proper. I agree that they could add $20 or so to the ticket price, but, again, they have to consider the effect of higher prices on the potential attendance. With respect, people will look at the cost to their pocket first before raising funds for Akeem. This way, hopefully, the price won't close out punters and once they arrive those that want to can donate.

There was talk of offering seats in a special section of the uncovered area at a higher price with the proceeds going to Akeem, but perhaps that wasn't practical.

I also know that TTFA are working on a bespoke fundraising idea that will probably be more effective.

Nelsen willing to help New Zealand if needed, but says team has plenty of quality
By Neil Davidson (Times Colonist)


Toronto FC manager Ryan Nelsen says he has not got a call from New Zealand football about helping his homeland's World Cup playoff push.

A story this week on Fairfax Media's website stuff.co.nz carried the headline: "Time for All Whites to send Ryan Nelsen SOS?"

"It is a longshot, given team politics and Toronto's own struggles, but (manager Ricki) Herbert and NZF should swallow their pride and send Nelsen an SOS," wrote Sam Worthington.

Nelsen, presumably, would help off the field.

The Toronto FC coach said he was unaware of the article.

"But I'm always there to help New Zealand if I can. Always help anybody," the former All Whites captain said Thursday. "But I know the coach really well. I know all the players really well. So they just need to pick up the phone if they ever need help.

"Not that they need it. They're a very good team. The players are good, the coach is good."

New Zealand, ranked 67th in the world, is slated to meet the fourth-best team from the final round of CONCACAF qualifying in a home-and-away playoff to see who advances to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The New Zealanders seem destined to meet either No. 21 Mexico or No. 35 Panama in November.

Before that, New Zealand will hold a week-long training camp before facing No. 85 Trinidad and Tobago on Oct. 15 in a friendly.

The All Whites will play Mexico's Queretaro and Major League Soccer's Chivas during the camp in Los Angeles.

The home leg of the intercontinental playoff is set for Nov. 20 in Wellington. The series will open in the CONCACAF country on Nov. 13 or 14.

Nelsen knows all about the playoff, having helped the All Whites beat Bahrain to get to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

"It was a really hard game," he said, recalling the 35-degree heat and 100-per-cent humidity in Manama's National Stadium.

In 2009, New Zealand tied Bahrain 0-0 on the road and then won 1-0 at Wellington's Westpac Stadium.

Nelsen believes playing the return leg at home again is an advantage for New Zealand.

"Come November, it will be raining, windy and horrible," said Nelsen.

New Zealand wrapped up its Oceania campaign last month, finishing atop the standings with a 6-0-0 record against No. 95 New Caledonia, No. 146 Tahiti and No. 169 Solomon Islands.

In contrast, its CONCACAF opposition will be coming of a 10-game series against the likes of the U.S., Costa Rica, Honduras and Jamaica.

Just assembling the New Zealand team is difficult, Nelsen said, given they are spread around the globe.

"The one advantage we have is New Zealanders travel well," he said. "It doesn't affect us — time zones and big long flights."

That's because New Zealand athletes are used to long journeys.

"But when they (opposing teams) have to come to the bottom of the earth, it affects those people," he added.

Uncovered =  $75
Covered = $100
Special Section = $125. The patron gets a commemorative tee-shirt, and part of the proceeds of this ticket goes towards a fund for Akeem Adams.

Local football fans can support Akeem in T&T/New Zealand friendly
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868)


Trinidad and Tobago football fans will be able to donate towards the medical expenses of two-time former World Youth Cup defender Akeem Adams and support the “Soca Warriors” at the same time at the national senior football team’s upcoming friendly against New Zealand.
The Warriors will face New Zealand on Tuesday October 15 from 7.15 pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain. And Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) general secretary Sheldon Phillips said that commemorative Native Spirit tee shirts will be on sale at the game for $50 each with all proceeds going towards the “Heart of a Warrior” fund on Adams’ behalf.
The 22-year-old Adams, who joined Hungarian top flight club Ferencvarosi in August, is in ICU at the Varosmajori Heart Clinic in Budapest, Hungary after suffering a massive heart attack last week. He needs a heart transplant but doctors are waiting for him to stabilise before the operation.
Wired868 understands Adams is now conscious and able to communicate with his mother, Ancilla Adams, and brother, Akini Adams, who both joined him in Budapest on Sunday night at Ferencvarosi’s expense. Adams moved for the first time on Monday morning when he nodded to his mother and squeezed her hand.
Phillips said the TTFA will do its part to aid Adams’ recovery and urged local football fans to join in.
There will be a special commemorative section in the uncovered stands for $125 where supporters will receive a Native Spirit tee shirt. Elsewhere, tickets are available for $75 (uncovered) and $100 (covered).

$4m for Soca Warriors’ friendlies.
T&T Guardian Reports.


The Ministry of Sports is expected to bear the majority of a $4 million budget for the T&T Football Association’s (T&TFA) hosting of the Soca Warriors next two international friendly matches at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo.

The first will be October 15 against Oceania champions and 2014 FIFA World Cup hopefuls, New Zealand from 7.15 pm which will provide locals the opportunity to see the team in action for the first time since their quarterfinal run at this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup and third place finish at the recent OSN Cup in Saudi Arabia.

It will also be the first match for T&T on home soil since a 2–0 loss to Peru in February earlier this year while its last outing at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, was 2–3 loss to Finland on January 22, 2012.

The second match is expected to be played between November 14 and 17 against a yet to be determined highly ranked opponent which according to T&T Football Federation President, Raymond Tim Kee, will no doubt attract a big crowd.

These revelations were made at a media conference held yesterday by the T&TFA’s executive headed by Tim Kee.
 
The federation intends to set up a Heart of a Warrior fund in support of national defender Akeem Adams, who is currently warded in ICU at the Varosmajori Heart Clinic in Budapest, Hungary, after he suffered a heart attack last week and is awaiting a heart transplant.

With regards to the upcoming internationals, Tim Kee said his federation had a very long meeting with the Ministry of Sports, then another with Caribbean Airlines Limited and both were positive towards support for the team. He is also awaiting what he expects to be three more positive responses from other corporate companies as the T&TFA continues its efforts to attract partners.

He added, “We have been getting positive responses, but I still get the sense that people are waiting to see how well we start to do as a business. My pattern is for us to lift the standard of the football from what we have been in the past to much better in the future and I have no doubt we will get people on board, because we have to remember that football is also a business like any other and it sells like any other product as well.”

Another positive outlook for the T&TFA stated Tim Kee was that President Anthony Carmona has promised to meet with him again to discuss ways in attract some corporate sponsors, after their first meeting was cut short by the Head of State’s attending a funeral.

The T&TFA boss also said that the current situation surrounding national defender Akeem Adams was a sad one which requires digging deeper into thought as local clubs and the federation need to enquire from overseas clubs what kind of care they have for players in their contracts if something like this is to happen again.

“We at the T&TFA must ensure that we have our legal teams examine all these aspects of players contracts, with the local clubs, the Pro League as well, because for Adams his days for football maybe over, and its now a question of what’s next for him.

Commenting on the budget for both matches, Sheldon Phillips, general secretary of the T&TFA and son of former T&TFA technical director and national goalkeeper Lincoln “Tiger” Phillips, noted that the overall cost inclusive of all expenses will be near $4 million, but at the same time he was very confident that the local federation will be able to take away some of the burden on the Ministry of Sports in funding the entire sum.

Phillips added: “We are looking at tying up some deals so that if we are able to get some support from Caribbean Airlines for example, it will take away a lot of the travelling cost on players from our team as well as the visiting teams.

“That is just one example and we are also working on a few others, so we may be able to cut it down a great deal.”

Phillips said ticket prices for the matches will be $75; $100 and $125, from which $50 will go towards the Heart of a Warriors fund.

Tickets will be sold at The Fan Club (Movie Town and Gulf City); More Vino’s and Law 5 Sports Bar & Lounge, Chaguanas and a number of soon to be announced locations.

Children Under-12 will be admitted to the matches free accompanied by their parents or adults.

Phillip added that very soon T-Shirts designed by Native Spirit with the special Heart of a Warrior fund and T&TFA logo will also go on sale at various venues across the country.

During the half-time interval of the T&T/New Zealand encounter, the Soca Princesses Under-17 team which edged host Haiti 1–0 in their Caribbean Football Union final on Sunday night will also be honoured along with the their Marlon Charles and the rest of the technical staff.

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

I like the idea of an double header, my only concern would probably be the pitch and the erratic rainy season we have been having.

Hart names T&T squad today
T&T Express Reports.


Trinidad and Tobago head coach Stephen Hart is expected to announce his squad today for the friendly international against Oceania FIFA 2014 World Cup group winners New Zealand, which takes place from 7.15 p.m. next week Tuesday (October 15) at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

New Zealand will play two matches in the United States prior to their arrival in T&T. Their squad is expected to include the likes of Blackburn Rovers midfielder Tim Payne, Burnley’s Cameron Howieson, West Ham United defender Winston Reid, Ipswich Town defender Tommy Smith and Leicester City forward Chris Wood as well as Stuttgart FC midfielder Marco Rojas. The All Whites will play Mexican club Queretaro and MLS club Chivas USA, before travelling to play T&T in a warm-up match prior to their World Cup 2014 playoff against the fourth-placed CONCACAF qualifier.

T&T midfielder Densill Theobald, one of the surviving members of the 2006 World Cup squad, had a chance to witness New Zealand in action in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia last month. He expects the visitors to be formidable opponents on October 15.

“They will be coming here to get the most of the match as they prepare for the playoffs. It reminds me of our period in 2005 before we faced Bahrain. We didn’t have any warm-ups but our team was in top form after the win against Mexico. New Zealand will want to be on top of their game also,” Theobald said.

“Our team is preparing for the future and the coach is rotating his squad but at the same time I know he wants his best squad available and this will be a great opportunity for us to put on a good performance in front of the home fans. It’s been some time since we played a quality match at the National Stadium and in that sense I think we’re all expecting it to be a fascinating contest,” Theobald added.

New Zealand’s High Performance Director Fred de Jong said the showdown with T&T will be extremely beneficial.

“We’re pretty happy to that we can get this international fixture off the ground because in essence it mirrors our preparation for November should our opposition be Panama or Honduras.”

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

Re: Warrior Nation giant flag for New Zealand game?

I am trying to go to this game, being on a Tuesday makes it difficult though. Sunday would have been ideal.

I am hoping to get down with the Warrior Nation crew also.

Can you guys confirm if WN and the giant flag crew will be present?

Marseille player in ‘All Whites’ squad.
T&T Express Reports.


New Zealand head coach Ricki Herbert  announced his squad yesterday for next Tuesday’s showdown with Trinidad and Tobago at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

Herbert has included uncapped Olympique de Marseille teenager Bill Tuiloma. The versatile former Birkenhead United and Waitakere United player--who has been turning out in the UEFA Youth League this season--has already represented New Zealand at U-17 and U-20 World Cups and may now force his way into the frame to help the All Whites reach the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

“Bill is a talented young player we’ve been tracking for a while and we think the time is right to bring him into the environment and see if he can make another step up,” said Herbert. “We have almost a full week in camp which is more than we’ve had for a single international since probably the away leg against Bahrain. The tour gives us a real chance to work through options for November, try a few things away from the spotlight, then ramp things up for the match against Trinidad and Tobago.

“Who knows what will happen between now and November?  This group of players could be in contention for the intercontinental playoff, we have a few [players] out with injuries for this tour and it could be the same in a month. We’re missing a number of players but the upside is that we bring in a group of players desperate to pull on the shirt and help New Zealand get to a World Cup. They now have that chance.”

Scotland-based Rory Fallon, whose goal took the “All Whites” to South Africa, is back in the mix since last representing New Zealand in the Solomon Islands last year, while Auckland City custodian Tamati Williams earns a recall to the national team for the first time since 2004 when he was an unused substitute throughout an ill-fated Oceania Nations Cup campaign in Australia.

Chris Killen’s Achilles surgery rules him out of the October window and potentially beyond, but Shane Smeltz (hip), Chris Wood (hamstring), Marco Rojas (foot) and Tim Payne (ankle) are all expected to be fit again for the intercontinental playoff against Panama, Mexico, Honduras or Jamaica.

Following communication to New Zealand Football from FIFA, New Zealand Football has imposed a one-match ban on Ben Sigmund for his red card against UAE last month, and he has not been considered for inclusion in the squad for the T&T game.

Ipswich Town player Tommy Smith, St Johnstone forward Rory Rallon, West Ham United defender and New Zealand captain Winston Reid and Burnley midfielder Cam Howieson are all included in the squad for the October 15 showdown.
