Colombia, Argentina and Iran

Impressive I must say, all pros vying for selection must show good form this tour of games.

Notwithstanding the focus of the teams we are going up against, this is as good as any World Cup group stage schedule.

Another world cup that pass we could have made with the current crop.

At least we have some saving grace with these matches.  An upset would be sweet.

Football Association seeks Colombia match
By Ian Prescott (Express).


The Soca Warriors may not have qualified for the World Cup, but they will be playing top quality opponents as if they were in the FIFA competition itself before the tournament starts.

 The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) is now seeking a friendly international match against a  third World Cup qualifier, Colombia,  prior to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. 

Already a match against Argentina has been confirmed for June 4 in La Plata, Argentina. The Soca Warriors will also play  Iran on  June 8 in Sao Paolo, Brazil.  Yesterday, TTFA general secretary Sheldon Phillips confirmed negotiations for a match against Colombia in May, but stated that the game is not yet confirmed.

If confirmed however, T&T may have the enviable task of facing the full squads of  two of the top five teams in the world, just prior to the World Cup. Lionel Messi’s Argentina are ranked in the top three in the world, while Colombia for whom Monaco striker Radamel Falcao plays, are ranked fifth.

  “We are trying to create a (World Cup) group stage of our own with three quality international matches,”  Phillips stated. “It is something which (coach) Stephen (Hart) would very much like  to have, as  preparation for the Caribbean Cup, Gold Cup and the next World Cup qualifiers. “

 “Nothing (with Colombia) has yet has been confirmed. But matches against Argentina (June 4) and Iran (June 8.) are confirmed, Phillips said.  “These things have a life of their own, but we would like to confirm it by the middle of March. We do not have a game in March for the FIFA window, but we would like a third match confirmed by mid-March, if it the this (Colombia) match, or some other qualify opponent.”

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

This very attractive tour is when you start contacting those foreign-born players who are on the bubble, and capping them (Haha cant think of any right now but there used to be a few! (See Bobby Zamora, Hoyte, Samuel pre-2010 as examples of players to target...the dual-citizenship player).

Also, these friendlies offer me hope that the new TTFA has somewhat of a clue.

Its a relief to see us getting some competitive fixtures.. Instead of the usual Grenada, Guyana etc.

I wouldnt be surprised if we get another competitive fixture before the world cup.

Good point on the 2nd nationality players - having competitive opponents who raise their game will be a draw certainly, although I think favouring players who played in the bad-old days would be my personal preference.

Personally I think that you shouldn't do that for national teams - I'd prefer national teams full of players who embody the nation, i.e. haven't made a choice for career decisions. Obviously I'm in a minority, but I'm cool with that :)

I'm with you on picking those who really have shown loyalty. But, being the small nation that we are, and not scheduling premier matches like this every day, I'd like to see TTFA really maximize and sell the hell out of these fixtures and use it to try and cap a player or two.

Yea that's a fair point, although I can imagine the frustration of some of the players who played all the crap games against our neighbouring islands, and then when an exciting game comes up johnny foreigner gets their first cap to 'capture' him for the nation and he loses his chance to impress on a bigger stage.

Then you raise your game and show that you deserve the pick.

Nick De Leon is getting some buzz up here in the states and has a big year for him starting next week, if he impresses enough he's hoping to hear from Jurgren. I dont think he will personally. As for Shaenon...I'm seeing him in 2 weeks and gonna tell him he needs to make his Mom (or dad) proud and give T&T a try!

T&T lines up Colombia friendly
TTFA Media.


Trinidad and Tobago will face yet another World Cup bound team in a friendly international in Buenos Aires.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association today finalized a match against Colombia scheduled for June 1st in Buenos Aires.

The match will precede T&T's friendly with Argentina in La Plata on June 4th and Iran in Sao Paolo on June 8th.

TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee was elated about the matches on the cards for the "Warriors."

"This is by every means our World Cup group and I think it's speaks volumes of our ability as a country and as an association to line up matches of this caliber against three world class opponents," Tim Kee told TTFA Media.

"The last time our country had such a schedule would have been in our build up to the 2006 World Cup where we played Czech Republic which was ranked number two in the world at the time. Now we will face potentially one of the World Cup favorites and another in Colombia who are traditionally a powerhouse in South America. Then you have Iran which is the top ranked team from Asia," Tim Kee added.

TTFA General Secretary Sheldon Phillips, who has been instrumental in arranging the matches, said the line up of games would go a long way in Stephen Hart's preparations for the upcoming Caribbean Cup and subsequently the Concacaf Gold Cup and 2018 World Cup campaign.

"Some may see it as a risk with us playing three World Cup teams but we believe ideally this is what we need in terms of quality opponents for our preparations. We want to be able to compete with the best teams around and this has all the ingredients attached to it,"Phillips said, also crediting the Ministry of Sport and Sportt for their ongoing support towards the National Teams.

"We want to give our national teams and players the best opportunities possible when it comes to preparations and experience. We think it says something about where we are heading with these teams giving us the opportunity to rub shoulders and to take them on over 90 minutes just prior to the World Cup."

Hart is expected to announce his squad for the three games in May and the TTFA will announce further details on the options for fans to witness the games over the next two weeks.

Colombia, coached by Argentine Jose Peckerman is still hoping it will be able to count on striker Radamel Falcao when it plays in the World Cup for the first time in 16 years.

Falcao has been working hard to recover from a knee injury that has put his participation in doubt. If he doesn't heal by the time the World Cup arrives, it will be up to 22-year-old James Rodriguez, Falcao's teammate at Monaco, to carry the hopes of Colombian fans.

With or without Falcao, Colombia has a solid squad that cruised through South American qualifying, finishing second only to Argentina in the nine-team group. Its defense was the best in the region, led by veteran Mario Yepes.
