He could help us get to the World Cup at least, and tbh in 2018 he'll still only be 35, which is really pushing it but he might still be good as a defender then.

Samuel is an active pro. I expect he'll be considered like any other active pro. Fortunately, we have a wise head who will make that decision.
Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the outgoing president of Croatia, said corruption was so embedded in her country that at school children who cheated in tests were celebrated as “heroes”. A recent Eurobarometer survey found that a majority of Croatians felt affected by corruption.

T&T TO PLAY IRAN IN WORLD CUP WARM UP IN SAO PAOLO
TTFA Facebook Page

Trinidad and Tobago will be going to Brazil after all. An international friendly between this country Men's National Senior Teamand Iran’s National Senior Team was today confirmed to take place in Sao Paolo, Brazil on June 8th.

This game will follow T&T’s June 4th friendly international against Argentina in La Plata and there are ongoing discussions to get a third game on the schedule for that period.

The game against Iran resulted following initial discussions between Iran's head coach Carlos Queiroz and the TTFA and an international match agent.

“This is another massive game for our national team,” said TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee.

“I think the match comes at a really good time and will be a fantastic opportunity for our current national senior team to experience playing such a game just mere days before the start of the World Cup and in the country where all the action will be taking place. I am excited by this and it will allow our country’s national flag to be flown in Brazil which is always a very proud moment.

“This game will hopefully go a long way in helping prepare our players for our upcoming Caribbean Cup campaign later this year and for our 2018 Russia World Cup campaign,” Tim Kee added.

Tim Kee expressed gratitude towards Sport Minister Anil Roberts, the Ministry of Sports and Sportt for their ongoing support to the Senior team and other TTFA-related matters such as the other national teams and development programs.

Iran is currently the number one ranked team in Asia and 34th on the FIFA World rankings. This will be their fourth World Cup appearance, having qualified for the 1978, 1998 and 2006 Finals.

Iran will compete in Group F alongside Argentina, Nigeria, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. Along with the warm up game against T&T, Iran will also Belarus on May 18th, and Montenegro on May 26th.

THE TRINIDAD and Tobago football team, dubbed “the Soca Warriors”, will be heading to Brazil, not to compete in this year’s FIFA World Cup but to face Iran in a friendly international at Sao Paolo on June 8.

The game will take place at the Arena Corinthians, Sao Paulo (scheduled to be completed by April 15), which will be hosting the World Cup Group A opening match between hosts Brazil and Croatia (on June 12).

The Stephen Hart-coached TT outfit will only have four days to prepare for their matchup against Iran, as they are carded to face hosts Argentina in a friendly meeting on June 4 in La Plata.

According to a media release from the TT Football Association (TTFA), this game arose after initial discussions between the local governing body, an international match agent and Iran coach Carlos Queiroz (the former Portugal, United Arab Emirates, South Africa and Real Madrid tactician and Manchester United assistant).

“This is another massive game for our national team,” said TTFA president Raymond Tim Kee.

“I think the match comes at a really good time and will be a fantastic opportunity for our current national senior team to experience playing such a game just mere days before the start of the World Cup and in the country where all the action will be taking place. I am excited by this and it will allow our country’s national flag to be flown in Brazil which is always a very proud moment.

“This game will hopefully go a long way in helping prepare our players for our upcoming Caribbean Cup campaign later this year and for our 2018 Russia World Cup campaign,” Tim Kee added.

Tim Kee also continued his expression of gratitude towards Sport Minister Anil Roberts, the Ministry of Sport and the Sports Company of Trinidad and Tobago (SPORTT) for their ongoing support to the various national teams and the TTFA development programmes.

Havent seen a thread for the Iran game, so I will post here, its intriguing that we will come up against the coach who was on a shortlist for our TD job...
the reports back then were that both Pfister and Quiroz were in the runnings, then Quiroz took the Iran job as Pfister got T&T.
Just another confirmation of what money can buy you.

Pfister was on $50,000 USD a month, and that got us knocked the fack out by Guyana.
Iran paid Quieroz $$166,666.66 USD a month, and that got them to top their group with South Korea and qualify directly.

Until we get our house in order financially, we will always be in a  mode of hopefulness rather than expectancy. Plain and simple.

And sometimes we wonder why our players look so unfit in international games...

We have to be very careful regarding how we approach the balance between affordable compensation, merited compensation, sustainable compensation and deliverable value on compensation. 

As you likely appreciate, no level of compensation is guaranteed to yield a successful outcome. Even so, how formulaic is it that football is an arena in which one gets what one pays for?

Certain variables seem to render WC qualification more likely than unlikely, and I dare say that we might be attaching too much investment in the notion that compensation is definitively a controlling variable in that outcome. Other human resource and infrastructural variables must precede investment in compensation under any analysis.

I think the issue you raise is not a simplistic issue, and it strikes me as a compelling area for inquiry mapped out with data.

However, we have to apply very critical thought to the notion of escalating compensation. In the context of our national landscape (even assuming we had the deepest of pockets), my position is that there's a problematic that must be sensitive to our social reality.

You make the contrast between Pfister and Queiroz ... there are other coaches who have failed and yet received hefty compensation. What's the post-mortem then?

How much has Pfister's previous successes cost? Please consider that the heir apparent situation at Man U would probably never have materialized had Queiroz stayed there. In my view, he's a brand name coach because of the clubs with which he's been associated (and this drives his "value") but he has in fact never really delivered at the international level. On the record, Pfister, although less glamorous, can probably stake a better claim. For less.

I have a different view concerning why our players look so unfit in international games ...it is in the second half of games that this is most noticeable...that being so after our teams spend most of the first half running behind the ball and/or chasing after opponents who can keep possession for long periods. When we do get the ball we dont seem to be able to keep possession for very long and often give up possession within two passes. Now no coach can get us fit enough unless we address the problem of lack of the ability as a team to keep possession of the ball.

I also agree that from what Hart has been able to accomplish so far that he is in for the long haul. It is amazing how he has transformed the same players into a much better unit. Players are actually playing better for T&T than their club teams this time around which was not the case in most instances before he arrived. Beenie was able to achieve the same thing ......

Pfister was on $50,000 USD a month, and that got us knocked the fack out by Guyana.
Iran paid Quieroz $$166,666.66 USD a month, and that got them to top their group with South Korea and qualify directly.

Until we get our house in order financially, we will always be in a  mode of hopefulness rather than expectancy. Plain and simple.

And sometimes we wonder why our players look so unfit in international games...



Even if TT had picked Quieroz, it may not have made a difference. Jack had Otto played one warm up game against Indian. The entire preparation for the WC was shoddy. Jack hand-tie the man with his political baggage. We should have had a rigorous preparation. We had the players. Our players lacked confidence. We lost the WC in Bermuda not GT. We should have won that game, and could have won it.
