we won the toss and choose to go second. I always go first because if we score it puts the pressure on the other team. Secondly in the team line up apparently there was no consideration taken for sudden death and when Kenwyn and they try to change Cyrus the ref said no. They wanted Boucaud to go.

Cyrus taking a crucial penalty. Lawd fadda. He not the most composed fella on the field. We had a chance to put away this game in the first half. We had a chance to take it in penalties too but they have the better GK.

Don't know why Boucard didn't take that penalty... Absolute rubbish...

I not congratulating anyone because they let themselves down and the supporters with that display..

Cyrus with he cramp leg should have never taken that one

Strongly agree! But hindsight is 20/20. We had a good run and now the TTFA needs to get their act together and get this team quality games.  Hopefully, with this display teams will be calling for games. On to the World Cup Qualifiers.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

The better team won. We're still a couple midfielders and a defender away. But this team really fought, and for once they defended admirably when they needed to.

I agree. And we didn't deserve to win.

But we have momentum, let's hope the TTFA and the MOS can resolve their issues.

Jeez

Thanks for pointing that out but to be honest Cyrus should have put that away..

I'm not happy with the performance or a fact we missed crucial kicks..

Two things I am so proud of my country and the warriors but 1 Panama played a very physical game and took these guys to the woodshed. 2 Penalties are anybodies game and they need to work on penalty kicks. All in All these boys played their hearts out. I say put Abu on a program to clear balls properly

I had a feeling there would be an emotional and physical let down after the Mexico game. These are all important learning experiences.  Handling success is just as much of a learning experience as handling adversity.

I was disappointed with the lack of attempts to possess the ball. Long ball clearances, goal kicks etc. That is the losing TnT of old. They looked tired and we did not win one long goal kick. Very few long balls from the right and left back were won. This approach had us chasing the game. We strung together some passes in previous game.

They stuck to it today  but the game plan and execution was not the best.

Any back pass to the keeper was an automatic turnover.  We need to do some work in the keeping department.

Cannot believe Boucaud did not take the penalty to win it... Very very gutted with the decision making in that shoot out, we only have ourselves to blame.

Many ways to look at this tournament from a positive side or a negative side but as far as things go this rounds T&T only made it to the quarterfinals. Next up WC qualifiers. 
The difference between the possible and
the impossible lies in a person determination.

One area we improved where it was desperate to do so, as it was one of our biggest weaknesses was:
defending on the wings in twos to cover the overlapping winger run. I was very happy with that. We're heading in the right direction and that sick feeling in your stomach that you can feel after a loss, I actually do not have. Psychological help for Peltier please as he will be suffering from PTSD
Supportin' de Warriors right tru.

they tried but the referee didn't allow it because Cyrus name was next on the sheet. It is not whoever,its whose listed next.

Good run. Hard luck in the end.

On a brighter note, did we qualify for Copa Americano Centenario?  I read somewhere that the top ranked teams in the Quarter finals might make it. Then I read that there is a playoff. Not the best source,  but according to wiki we qualified for 2016 Copa.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copa_Am%C3%A9rica_Centenario

If this is accurate.  Then great. I don't think another playoff would have made sense.

We must not pretend everything is A ok and the T&T Sports media must not sugar coat the issue and hail this team as the best thing since slice bread.

When it mattered the most we did not even play our best football and this has been the norm in T&T football over the years. The older heads in here have been conditioned to just accept this as 'dais just the way it is'. Why? Is it because we are a small nation with a small population?

Are we serious about our football or not? Our defense has been poor. Is it because we don't have the quality defenders or is it experience or the local leagues not developing the talent?

I think there still will be a

This will actually be a positive though because it means we will be using the September Fifa date for the Mexico game, and October for the playoff game. There are no WC qualifying games in Concacaf in October so I'm assuming it will be then.

and the Panama goal was so damn soft, the Communication at the back was lacking  :cursing:

Is like we were still celebrating the Mexico draw and forgot the importance of the game. When will be our time to get over the mental lapse and evolve as one of the better teams in Concacaf? WC qualifiers will be MORE difficult so what will happen then? smh

We did not play a practice game all year till the Jordon game which we lost.

This is what happens when your team don't get enough quality preparation matches on the allotted FIFA dates.

Untill we start doing that we are not serious enough about our football to go all the way and win these tournaments.

I believe the tactics adopted by TT at the start of game was correct, sit back and allow Panama to do the early running, then look to pounce on the counter.  Problem is your defenders had a lapse on the Panama goal, which meant you had to change strategy prior to first half. 

Fatigue set in as the game went on for both teams, but Panama looked to have slight edge in fitness.

Was not surprised when Panama surrendered the lead, its a feature of their game during the group stages.

I expect all remaining games in the tournament will be tight affairs.

That's the problem with wiki. The article I found says we qualified. I guess we will have to wait for Concacaf to set playoff dates.  Of course there is bias in my opinion.. But I think taking the top ranked teams in the Gold cup makes more sense. Sucks for Haiti if Concacaf decides to go with that.

You see this right here. Ok we proud of the grit and heart. Are you proud of the defensive display T&T showed today? Are you proud of the long ball tactics one too many throughout the game? Are you proud with the lack of possession late in the game and overtime?  We just can't sit back and accept this as the best we can do
