I've never cheered for Trinidad in a match more than this...congrats guys from a really impressed Yardie. Your team is really  good team.

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.

Sound familiar, T&T?

We have to work on the far side deep switch and the clearances to the top of the 18 have to stop as well.

What a game.

Emotional roller coaster.

That last goal to tie it at 4-4 was probably the most important goal scored by Trinidad and Tobago since Tallest in Bahrain to qualify for Germany 2006.

Kenwyne earn that captaincy today.

That ball of the post with the two defenders. He cover a lot of ground.

Cummings played well also.

We actually had some decent corners delivered.

If we could stop clearing the ball to the top of the 18th and press players earlier we good to go.

Nice work, Trinis! Way to deliver a body blow to the Mexicans!

And it was especially sweet after seeing your player getting showered with all those bottles, cups, etc. while taking the corner!  :pissedoff:



Precisely. I have an issue with CONCACAF on that. The gall of Herrera to be complaining about the time. The referee was also none too impressive in this regard.

Kudos to Joevin for dealing with those conditions without reacting ... and to deliver a quality ball. As for Yohance ... nuff said. :applause:

Coach Hart's tactics were spot on. Absorb pressure in the first half and press dem in the second half.
Face it, we don't have the conditioning to press for 90mins. (3 games in 6 days).
The Mexicans had no chance to make any 2nd half adjustments in the locker room.  :beermug: :beermug: :beermug:

Three out of four Caribbean teams make the second round: Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Haiti. 

Cuba the odd man out, largely because of non-football issues that overshadowed the team in the first game.

What are your thoughts on the moments when we seemed to fluctuate in absorbing pressure (almost needlessly?) Even with the own goal (KJ had absolutely no business!!! reaching for that ball with his body positioned like that), I still feel we conceded another goal unnecessarily because we were not seizing the advantage.

Seriously Mexico owes us an apology for all those bottles and ice they rain down on our players. Like WTF??? They come to TNT and we treat them in the best way and take our losses with no hard feelings then they do this.

Cuba made it. So four out of four..

That's right!  They were celebrating!

Real good Gold Cup for the Caribbean thus far.

Central America had a very poor showing.

Best game I have seen in a while. And to think many KEY PLAYERS were being rested or injured.

I knew when KJ found his legs, it would be big.

It takes some real no-class fans to do that.

It would be nice to see some kind of punishment by CONCACAF, but that'll probably never happen. At the very least a public reprimand is in order.
