Squad:

Goalkeepers: Sergio Romero (Monaco), Mariano Andujar (Catania)

Defenders: Ezequiel Garay (Benfica), Hugo Campagnaro (Inter Milan), Federico Fernandez (Napoli), Jose Basanta (Monterrey), Marcos Rojo (Sporting Lisbon), Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City), Lisandro Lopez (Getafe), Gino Peruzzi (Catania), Nicolas Otamendi (Atletico Mineiro)

Midfielders: Ricardo Alvarez (Inter Milan), Javier Mascherano (Barcelona), Jose Sosa (Atletico Madrid), Angel Di Maria (Real Madrid), Augusto Fernandez (Celta Vigo), Lucas Biglia (Lazio)

Forwards: Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Paris St Germain), Rodrigo Palacio (Inter Milan), Gonzalo Higuain (Napoli), Sergio Aguero (Manchester City)

I wonder if we will play a game at home before we go to Argentina? I know Canada is looking for a friendly game. It would be good for us to get a game in before playing Argentina and Iran.

From what specifically? The game? Some quality opposition and a big game to celebrate and see the best players in the world?

Gago looks set to miss World Cup warm-ups against Trinidad and Tobago in Buenos Aires on June 4 and Slovenia three days later in La Plata. Argentina midfielder Fernando Gago could miss the World Cup due to a knee injury after his club Boca Juniors said on Monday he would need up to 60 days to recover.

  Possible options for June 1, 5, & 8.   
                                                 
                                                        Jan-Michael / Marvin Phillip

                                 Mitchell (Power, Radanfah)   Primus (Bateau, Julius,)
                 Hoyte (Cyrus, Carlos, Gonzales)                  Cyrus (Joevin, JLloyd, A. David)
                                                             
                                         Boucaud (Kev. George)  Hyland (Theobald)
                 Peltier (C. Glen, Cato, S Winchester, T. Caesar)        Guerra (Hector) Daniel

                          Molino (Leston Paul, Marcus Joseph, Toussaint)
                               Jones (Glen, W. Plaza, Cato, D. Roberts, R. Winchester, K. Baptiste, Jorsling)

Folks, that is actually a team pool with plenty potential, with a nice balance of experience and youth. Where are we potentially lacking, in the context of this big South American trip requiring serious match fitness, a deep substitute bench and quality in all positions on the field, good first touch in merciless tight traffic and against world class opposition that has seen above average speed, dribbling skills from various opponents?

1. Midfield looks very solid. Note Keon Daniel probably kissed his chances good-bye .. a shame.
2. In Defense, Hoyte may be injured and is probably currently not match fit, unless he is getting regular reserve games. That would be a big loss. However the good news is that the versatile Cyrus could be moved there as he was perfectly used in the Gold Cup against El Salvador.
3. A bit more striking power pedigree is needed. However it is nice to see potency in the midfield wings like Peltier who is a striker in a sense. Doh forget we have speedy Cato too.
4. Goalkeeping needs more aerial power. Could Samuel be resurrected and tuned up by the goalkeeping coaches?

                                                        Jan-Michael / Cleon John

                                 Bateau (Radanfah)   Primus (Marshall)
                 Hoyte (Cyrus, Gonzales)                              Jloyd (JLloyd, A. David)
                                                             
                                         Boucaud (Leston Paul, Kev. George)  Hyland (Theobald)
                    Peltier (Molino, Da Silva )                                              Joevin (S Winchester)

                                           Plaza (Guerra, Joseph, Glen)
                                                                   Jones (Caesar, Jorsling)

Got some dice-throws in this team - I'm convinced that Marshall will be in the squad given his performances in the past couple months, although maybe not starting given the quality we have back there. Likewise, I think the lack of exposure to Hart could undermine Power's chances of getting into teh squad. Jorsling might not play given the lack of play for Defence Force, which opens it up to probably the most competitive front-line in a while in terms of places. Any of Plaza, Joseph, Glen and Caesar could nick that, as well as R Winchester or some other youths if he felt like blooding them.

TTFA, Tourism Ministry team up for Argentina
By Ian Prescott (Express).


Representatives from the Ministry of Tourism and the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) will head to Argentina on Friday for site visits and meetings, ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s two June international matches against World Cup qualifiers.

T&T’s first friendly is June 4 in La Plata against World No.3 ranked Argentina, one of the favourites for the 2014 FIFA Brazil World Cup. The Soca Warriors then travel to Sao Paulo, Brazil, for a second match against top Asian team Iran on June 8.

A third match against Colombia has now been called off after the South Americans opted to play Senegal instead, as they prepare to face Ivory Coast in the World Cup. However, efforts are still being made to get a replacement for Colombia.

The TTFA will be represented on the pre-match tour by Kyle Aqui from its marketing division, and while in Argentina, the team of officials will visit the T&T team hotel and also the match venue. The Tourism Ministry will also shortly disclose plans for a travel package that will allow a limited number of fans to travel to Argentina to witness the match.

“This is going to be the first of a series of collaborations between the TTFA, the Ministry of tourism and the Sport Ministry,” stated Trinidad and Tobago Football Association secretary Sheldon Phillip yesterday.

“This is part of the “Beyond The Pitch Strategy” which is aimed at making the away matches an opportunity for trade and tourism. It is aimed at establishing Trinidad and Tobago as a destination point for tourism and business.”

Phillip stated as part of the package, the Tourism Ministry has been offered billboard promotions and advertising opportunities, before what is likely to be a television audience of some 10 million in Argentina, where the match will be televised. However, T&T’s second warm-up against Iran is a closed door affair that will not be televised.

While in Argentina, the TTFA/Tourism Ministry travelling party will also meet with match agent Hernan Tofoni of the World Eleven Agency, which is responsible for all of Argentina’s international matches. Tofoni confirmed that tickets for the T&T versus Argentina encounter are already on sale in Argentina and via the internet.

“We are expecting between 45-50,000 spectators at the stadium,” Tofoni told TTFA Media. “And the home fans will be very anxious and happy to see their top players together before they go to Brazil for the World Cup. All the preparation games are important for the head coach (Alejandro Sabella). The more games we play the more beneficial it will be to us.”

Argentina will face Slovenia in another friendly on June 7 before kicking off their World Cup campaign against Bosnia and Herzegovina on June 15. T&T head coach Stephen Hart will announce his roster for the two matches next month.

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

Great idea - tourism is really under-utilised by the nation as compared to its potential - Saint Lucia seems to attract English tourists better than Tobago, and Trinidad had less hotels than Tobago despite their size difference.

So before there is any noise of who get left out...
Even doh we probably won't agree..Let's see who your 22 are ?  Not the whole pool and who possible. Just 22. No talk, no explanation.
Especially would like local observers to participate... Remember some ppl would have to be left out. So cyah vex nobody picks. Let's go.
Consider funding.. I not flying back nobody just to see if they still have it (my eg. Jake). If they want to pay they way, they welcome. Pick 22.
Dreamer above have a pool of 39. You may use that as a guide. but he might have missed onr or two. Let's go.

                                                     Jan-Michael / Cleon John

                                           Mitchell (Radanfah)   Bateau (Marshall)
                             J Hoyte                                                         Cyrus (A. David)
                                                             
                                             Boucaud (Kev. George)  Hyland (Theobald)
                         Peltier (Cato)                                                   Molino (J. Jones)

                                                            Guerra (S Winchester)
                                                   Jones (W. Plaza, R. Winchester)


- Think this squad of 22 offers variety for back to back fixtures away. Each of the players in the front 4 can interchange. Bateau can also step into midfield and Cato and J. Jones can fill the full back spots.
- Choices were made based on particular players playing in front of Hart weekly which may give them the edge over Asia based players. 
- Guerra had an inconsistent season but is a favorite of Hart and was the game changer in recent friendlies.
- S Winchester was W Connection's best player before he returned to Finland and R Winchester has returned to form at the right time. Winchester x 2 attributes make them a bit more of a difference maker than Caesar right now.
