Great result for the team. One win away from the quarterfinals. I think it showed character to hold out for the result. Being up 3 goals is a tricky situation because you naturally drop to defend. Congrats to the team, and so far it looks like Hart's system change worked.

alls well that ends well.  congrats TT for that nervy 90 mins of football. now time to work on our passing  and decision making.  big up coach hart well done.  sorry guys for the doom and gloom, i love my trinbago a little too much.

Breds, no probs. about the doom and gloom. Our guys are still a work in progress. We still working on learning to play a full ninety mins, rather than 45 and hanging on for the next 45.

It's only one game. Good result, but we have a lot of work to do if we want to get out of the group and win a knockout game.
1. Our passing is atrocious. We have to pass accurately in tight spaces
2. We have to learn to play one-touch football. We hold on to the ball too long then lose it too easily.
3. When we take hard shots, it should be low not sky high.
4. Despite the aerial threat, I am not convinced that Kenwyne Jones is a good striker.

Wishing this gives then a little confidence without complacency or we'll be packing our bags in spite of the good start.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

Breds, these ball jumbies on this site know what they talking about. We know we counter acting and scoring. But when you winning you fail to see your faults. These guys just voicing their opinions.

I not against opinions nor am I not seeing things that may need adjusting against a stronger opponent.  However by most accounts a 3-0 scoreline in the first half reflects dominance.  So to take that away from them and make it about Guatemala playing shit is a disservice to our warriors. To choose this particular moment to launch into a myriad of criticisms just shows how ungrateful we as fans can be. No one expected such a scoreline in the first half.  Why not appreciate it and credit the players for taking advantage of Guatemala not being ready from the opening whistle?

Well done warriors, it's not easy for us to hold on to a lead for so long. Too much temptation to stop playing. 
Congrats to the guys who got their first senior goals.
Let's learn lessons from this game and go into the next one a better team.
Plenty work to do still, but a win is one foot in the next round.

Too many yellow cards.
I was just telling a lady how much I hate Ruiz.  Then the man pop up and remind me just how nasty he can be.
Abu Bakr hit a nice volley but he shoulda saved it for Ruiz.

Cuba playing short-handed tonight

Six Cuban players and manager Raul Gonzalez Triana are having visa troubles and aren't even in the country for tonight's Gold Cup opener against Mexico. And a 7th is missing in Chicago after leaving the team hotel.

hmmmmmm.... man done defecting already.

as i reiterated before. the goal we conceded was a direct result of jan not trusting his defenders by not staying on his line while defending an attack. that goal would have been a cool tip over or an easy grab had been been closer to his goal line.
this is how he concedes most of his goal by being on the edge of the 6 yrd box like he's a bloody central defender. learn to trust your defenders jan, most great keepers do. get some tapes of petr chec and learn how to position yourself. no pun son.

I know many have issues with Jan, but did you see  from where the guy hit that shot. There is no way Jan could have gotten. The guy beat our defense. He got the ball perfectly in the six yard box, perfectly on his right foot and just swing. Which goalie getting that?

I wondered how this would play out given the "new relations" between the countries. But defecting probably beats playing Russian roulette on getting another chance to enter the country.

Next thing is ... why defect before completing yuh matches. Play and give MLS clubs something to work with as a reference.

Good job team! Was not able to see the game but 3 goals in 25 mins and 3 points, regardless of the 2nd half performance, should do wonders for our confidence.

Hopefully we continue to build and get stronger in the Cuba game
