De Four spoke very optimistically about rebuilding but that was largely cast in the context of rebuilding a team as it remained on a competition footing. Now that elimination has occurred, he may be faced with the crude awakening that doesn't place a high premium on the WNT ... that is, until the next competition is lurking around the corner.

I suggest strongly that the players from the retiring generation of players take full ownership of the destiny of women's football, not just to protect their legacy but to push the game. Football played by women is a specialized area of the game and the Toms, Dicks and Harrys of the world need to be made to understand how the thing should be run.

Nothing will change if the retiring generation of players are not invested activists and decision-makers.

Trini locals i swear have a real complex, they like to think more of themselves than they actually deserve credit for. I was in trinidad recently and the people are so aloft and extremely self important with no real care for that country, it’s all about what their country can do for them and never the other way around.

I could actually see why they are so insecure around foreigners including their own people (expats) who no longer lives there. expats are actually more patriotic than the trinis who live there and wants better for the country, not saying that there aren’t locals who are patriotic, but they’re in the minimum.

I listened to my cousins and how they blame the govt for every little thing that goes wrong, even though for the most part govt ministers are very hard at work trying to fix what they can with minimal resources, and when i asked them how many of them or their friends actually volunteer their time to a worthy cause they all went mum.

 as it stands, the new federation (if they’re able to dethrone DJW) has to pair up with a sister federations in europe or south america if they are to get football academies build and staffed with well trained coaches, they also need loads of sponsorship to get that league up and running well. i don’t envy those who’s coming to the hot seat because that’s what it’s going to be, a very hot hot seat after DJW gets off it, but that’s what’s needed to restart TT football. no more local coaches those guys are poisonous.

It appears that none of our national coaches want to shoulder the blame when our teams—men, women and boys—fall short or turn in poor performances. It’s always the players, the schools, the clubs and now TT WOLF at fault. 🔥🔥 🔥

While the current TTFA admin and coaches must take responsibility for this debacle, there is some truth in their defense. The quality of players our pro-league producing is not up to par for our national team to face regional teams. In past,  TT team has won the CFU Cup on a couple of occasions using mostly local players. And that was before the pro-league. We have not won a CFU championship since the pro-league started. Correct me if I am wrong on that.

That is as far as I will defend them. This year because of the confusion brought in by DJW and the proleague,  TT football had to play in a minor league.  TTFA not in charge of the proleague. The proleague and the TTFA can't  get themselves together. What were the women doing? The women are an after-thought. They were doing practically nothing. No intensive competition. They tried an intensive preparation for the tournament but they got schooled by St. Kitts. And that team was coached by a woman from the US. Pushing some wood in the fire. So Mr. Defour and the TTFA ..... own up.

U.S. women shut out Haiti to open Olympic qualifying
Associated Press


HOUSTON -- Christen Press scored the opening goal off a shoeless assist from Lynn Williams and the United States beat Haiti 4-0 Tuesday in its opening match of the CONCACAF women's Olympic qualifying tournament.

The U.S., which won the Women's World Cup last summer, extended its unbeaten streak to 24 games dating to a loss to France a year ago.

Press' goal came in the second minute on a cross from Williams, who had lost her cleat in her run up the field. It was the 52nd international goal for Press.

Williams added a goal in the 67th minute on a header off a corner kick from Megan Rapinoe. Lindsey Horan came off the bench and scored on her first touch in the 73rd minute and Carli Lloyd capped it with a stoppage-time goal.

It was the first competitive match for U.S. coach Vlatko Andonovski, who took over when Jill Ellis stepped down last year.

Lloyd made her 15th start in Olympic qualifying, passing Abby Wambach for most in team history. Rapinoe, the reigning Ballon d'Or winner and FIFA World Player of the Year, played off the bench in the second half.

An announced crowd of 4,363 attended the game, which was hit in the first half by a sudden downpour at BBVA Compass Stadium.

The United States looked rusty at the start and Haiti appeared to tie the score with a goal in the 18th minute, but it was called back. Then the top-ranked Americans simply wore down their opponents in the second half.

Eight teams are playing in the tournament, with the title match set for Feb. 9 in Carson, California. The top two finishers will earn berths to the Tokyo Games this summer.

The United States and Haiti were in the same group with Costa Rica and Panama, which played in the early match Tuesday. Costa Rica won 6-1.

The U.S. has qualified for every Olympics since women's soccer was introduced in 1996. The team has five consecutive titles in the qualifying tournament.

Six teams have already made the field for Tokyo: Japan, Brazil, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Sweden and New Zealand.

Haiti advanced to the tournament by winning its qualifying group in the Caribbean region.

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

Costa Rica power past Panama to open CWOQ.
CONCACAF.COM


HOUSTON, Texas – Melissa Herrera’s brace helped power Costa Rica past Panama 6-1 to open Group A of the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship on Tuesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The 6-1 final scoreline was also the same result in the only previous CWOQ meeting between the two nations during the 2004 CWOQ.

Costa Rica enjoyed a blistering start and Herrera handed the Ticas a 1-0 lead in just the 9’ by finishing into an open net after a great team build-up.

Six minutes later in the 16’ the lead was doubled to 2-0 when Panama GK Yenith Bailer fouled Maria Paula Salas in the area and Raquel Rodriguez calmly converted the spot kick.

But right before halftime in the 45’, Katherine Castillo gave Panama a big boost with an excellent right-footed strike to cut the Costa Rica lead to 2-1.

Costa Rica looked to take back control and regained a two-score lead with a magnificent right-footed volley from Shirley Cruz in the 67’ to make it 3-1.

That was the start of an onrush of late goals, with Priscilla Chinchilla’s inch-perfect header in the 70’ and composed finishes from Herrera in the 72’ and Maria Elizondo in the 83’ to complete the scoring.

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

Haiti scored a goal off of a corner to tie the game 1-1

Unfortunately the AR flagged for offside, erroneously. You cannot be offside direct from a corner. It was a shame. Haiti were holding their own.
THE BEATINGS WILL CONTINUE UNTIL MORALE IMPROVES
