Eve hopes U-17s continue training despite tourney suspension.
By Nigel Simon (Guardian).


Former national team captain and current Under-17 men's coach Angus Eve is hoping that measures will be in place for the national youth team to continue on-field training when the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic restrictions are lifted come June 22.

Eve, 48, the most capped T&T international with 117 appearances, was appointed coach of the national youth team earlier this year to prepare the squad for the Concacaf U-17 Championship which was set to contest in Honduras during August.

However, on Friday last, Concacaf issued a release which said that given the ongoing uncertainty about when football can resume in the region, the confederation had decided to suspend the 2020 Girls’ U-15 and Men’s U-17 Championship qualifiers.

According to the Concacaf release, the thoughts of everyone at the confederation remains with the communities across the region affected by COVID-19.

"The health and welfare of everyone involved in the sport is our priority and we continue to monitor and follow the guidance provided by Governments and public health authorities," the release added.

Concacaf noted that it will continue to discuss with its member associations, FIFA and other stakeholders proposals to reorganise the competitions so that they are well prepared when the sport can safely resume in the future.

Commenting on the decision, Eve who coaches Naparima College in the Secondary Schools Football League as well as T&T Pro League club, Club Sando said the decision taken by Concacaf to suspend the qualifiers was expected and should not stop the team from continuing to prepare.

Eve, who has also coached at the U-20 national level added, "Based on what was happening with football leagues and other competitions in Concacaf due to COVID-19 we knew there was a big possibility that the qualifiers would be pushed back.

"I honestly don't see Concacaf resuming international football until November for the latest with the FIFA U-17 World Cup to be played in Peru next year as well, so the qualifiers could be set for early next year and that's a good reason to continue what we started.

"We were able to get two months of on-field training from the beginning of February until we were told to stop by the T&T Football Association (TTFA) due to the coronavirus, and since then we have managed to keep the programme going by conducting virtual training sessions and have been staying in regular contact with the players as well.

"So we have not stopped working and once we are allowed to resume full-team training I expect all the players will be in good physical shape to do so."

Looking past the restrictions of team sports as well possible clashes with schools football and Youth Pro League, Eve said he will like to see the players resume on-field training as soon as possible.

"Before the Concacaf tournament we have a lot of work to put in and I recently completed a coaching course with the Argentina Football Association where they explained that they normally prepare their youth teams for two-and-a-half years before a tournament.

"I believe this is the way we have to go for us to continually have teams competing in major events. We need to be doing likewise and prepare our teams for nothing less than two years, said Eve.

<Spence uncertain of Under-15 girls' fitness levels>

However, Jason Spence, coach of the U-15 girls' team and former senior women's team assistant under Randy Waldrum said he is uncertain as to what level of fitness his players will return to on-field training when they get the go-ahead to resume.

Speaking via telephone, Spence said, "The U-15 girls' programme began training during the first week in February and like all the other programmes were forced to bring everything to a halt when in mid-March.

"Concacaf did not provide a confirmed date for the girls' competition but we were all working with the idea that the tournament was set for July/August."

While some national age-group teams have been able to continue their program via virtual sessions Spence, a former U-20 women's coach admitted to having some difficulty communicating with his players.

"We have only been able to reach out to some of them via WhatsApp and have sent them programmes to follow so honestly I'm not sure what physical shape they will be in when we do get the green-light to resume training sessions as the girls no doubt to me will have been set-back in their preparations.

Away from the playing field, Spence also pointed out that there is also the added situation with regards to the payment of salaries to the coaching staff.

"As you may know by now we have not been paid for almost three months, and there is some uncertainty as to where the payments will be coming from," said Spence.

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

Cooper screens home based and US-based U-17 players.
TTFA Media.


Head Coach Shawn Cooper is currently overseeing sessions with Provisional Training Squad of Under 17 home-based and US-based players as preparations continue for next February’s CONCACAF Men’s U-17 Championship in Guatemala.

With the current SSFL Season in progress, sessions have been taking place twice weekly with Cooper and his staff observing scrimmages as they work towards trimming the squad to 35 players.

T&T are in Group F of the Concacaf Championship with USA, Canada and Barbados. Cooper’s Men open against Canada on Saturday February 11th, followed by a meeting with the US on February 13th and Barbados on February 15th.

The 2023 CU17C will begin with a 16-team group stage played between the top ranked participating nations (according to Concacaf’s Men’s U-17 ranking). These nations are (in alphabetical order): Barbados, Canada, Costa Rica, Cuba, Curacao, El Salvador, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Suriname, USA and Trinidad and Tobago.

For the Group Stage, to be played between February 11-16, Groups E and G will be based at the Estadio Nacional Doroteo Guamuch Flores in Guatemala City, while Groups F and H will be hosted by the Estadio Pensativo in Antigua.

After Group Stage play, the top three nations in each group will advance to the knockout stage, joining the four 2022 Concacaf U-17 Men’s Qualifiers (CU17Q) group winners: Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico.

The Round of 16 matches will take place February 18 and 19, at both venues, followed by the Quarterfinals (February 21 and 22), Semifinals (February 24) and Final (February 26) in Guatemala City.

All knockout stage matches will be played in a single match direct elimination format and the four semifinalists will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru 2023.

Residential training camps for U-17s
TTFA Media


Trinidad and Tobago’s Under 17 Provisional Training squad is currently engaged in a residential training camp at the Home of Football in Couva as preparation continues toward the CONCACAF U-17 Men’s Championship in Guatemala.

Head Coach Shawn Cooper has been running double sessions daily during the ongoing camp which ends tomorrow (Christmas Eve). Another camp will begin on December 29th and run until December 31st at the Couva facility.

Among the players currently in the training squad is Nashville FC forward Tyrell Moore, the younger brother of Shaq Moore who appeared for the US National Team at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Both players are the sons of former Trinidad and Tobago player Wendell Moore.

Also in training with Cooper’s squad is English-born midfielder Rio Cardines of Crystal Palace’s Under 18 team. Cardines has appeared for Palace in their last three fixtures against Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Norwich City in which he scored in a 2-2 draw on November 19th.

Cooper has been impressed by the workrate of the players involved in the current camps.

“We’ve been doing double sessions during the camps and the players have responded positively with some encouraging signs. They have shown that they are willing to go the distance. The players who have come in from overseas have definitely fitted into the program and the style and approach of our set-up as well,” Cooper told TTFA Media.

“We are in a period where we are emphasising on physical conditioning while including other aspects of how we want to play.”

“Generally the home-based players have been competitive because everyone is aware that places are up for grabs and the overseas guys have been pushing for inclusion also. The attitude and approach has been good but we still have other aspects of our overall team preparation that we will be focusing on in the sessions ahead,” Cooper said.

Among the overseas-players who have been involved in the previous training camp are Luka Hislop, son of former Trinidad and Tobago goalkeeper Shaka Hislop, Jaden Chan Tack, Joshua Palmer and Samuel Duncan.

T&T opens its campaign against Canada in Group F on February 11th before facing USA on February 13th and Barbados two days later. After Group Stage play, the top three nations in each group will advance to the knockout stage, joining the four 2022 Concacaf U-17 Men’s Qualifiers (CU17Q) group winners: Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico.

The Round of 16 matches will take place February 18 and 19, at both venues, followed by the Quarterfinals (February 21 and 22), Semifinals (February 24) and Final (February 26) in Guatemala City.

All knockout stage matches will be played in a single match direct elimination format and the four semifinalists will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru 2023.

Wendy's son catches U-17 coach Cooper's eye
By Nigel Simon (T&T Guardian)


T&T could soon be represented on the international by another member of former Miss Universe (1998) Wendy Fitzwilliam's family, her son Ailan Andrew Panton.

This after the 16-year-old Panton, her son with former husband, Jamaican senator, David Panton impressed the T&T Under-17 men's football team coaching staff led by Shawn Cooper during the residential training camp at the Home of Football in Balmain, Couva which ends today as preparation continues toward the Concacaf U-17 Men’s Championship in Guatemala in February.

Speaking on the eve of the conclusion of the second stage of the camp which was briefly interrupted on Christmas Eve (Saturday) to allow the players to enjoy Christmas with their families before it resumed on Thursday until today (Saturday, December 31), Cooper said he has been relatively pleased with the players.

"We resumed on Thursday with a double session where we continued to look at a couple of players from the USA in terms of seeing how well they would have adapted to what we are trying to do in terms of our style of play and tactics, and they were pretty okay and also adopted very well to the conditions, especially coming from the very cold weather that is facing the USA at the moment."

"They all adjusted well to what we were doing and it's now up to us as members of the coaching staff to sit and determine which players we will be going with for the tournament.

The T&T coach said it will without a doubt be a difficult task to select his final team, but one that he and his staff embrace.

"My coaching staff and I have a very hard task in selecting a final squad for the tournament not only because of the high competitive level between the players, but also Concacaf has reduced the number of players per team for this age group tournament to 20 players, so where in the past teams would have selected three goalkeepers, we will more than likely have to go with one less, and then it's a hard choice in terms of the rest of the squad in terms of defenders, midfielders, and forwards."

"Only on Thursday night we had four USA-based players left to return to North America and off the top of my head, I would say that Jeremiah Cato, and Tyrell Moore, the latter, the younger brother of Shaq Moore who appeared for the USA at the just concluded 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Both players are the sons of former T&T player Wendell Moore.
"I would also add to those two, the son of former Miss Universe Wendy Fitzwilliam, Ailan Andrew Panton who has proven himself to be a very good goalkeeper, and certain to have a bright future in the sport along with Luka Hislop, son of former national goalkeeper Neil ‘Shaka’ Hislop, who is younger.

He added, "Overall, the camp was a very useful one with about 35 players involved in total, with about ten to 12 from overseas, but unfortunately last Thursday close to ten of them were showing signs of flu-like symptoms and as a precaution, we had to send them home to avoid it spreading through the rest of the camp to the other players

Looking ahead to the resumption of school next week and the scheduling of training sessions for the locally based players, Cooper said he plans to ramp up the weekly sessions.

"We are expected to leave for Costa Rica coming closer to the end of January where we will play two international warm-up matches against that country's Under-17 team, but before that, we will basically add more weekly sessions to about four a week. So the guys can expect a schedule of Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays until we depart,

T&T will open its campaign at the Concacaf Under-17 Championship, which serves as a qualifier to the FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Peru next year against Canada in Group F of the 20-team tournament on February 11, 2023, Men’s Under-17 Championship against at the Estadio Pensativo in Antigua, Guatemala.

The young Soca Warriors then face the USA in the second match on February 13 before closing out their round-robin group campaign against Caribbean rivals Barbados on February 15.

Groups H which is made up of Honduras, Haiti, El Salvador, and Suriname will also be played at the Estadio Pensativo in Antigua while

Group E which comprises defending champion and eight-time winners Mexico, Panama, host Guatemala, and Curacao, and Group G featuring Costa Rica, Jamaica, Guadeloupe, and Cuba will be based at the Estadio Nacional Doroteo Guamuch Flores in Guatemala City.

After the group stage, the top three nations in each group will advance to the knockout stage, joining the four 2022 Concacaf U-17 Men’s Qualifiers (CU17Q) group winners: Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico.

The round-of-16 matches will take place on February 18, and 19, at both venues, followed by the quarterfinals on February 21, and 22 with the semifinals set for February 24, and the finals on February 26 in Guatemala City.

All knockout stage matches will be played in a single-match direct elimination format and the four semifinalists will qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup Peru 2023.

TTFA announces National U-17 match against Footy Fest All Stars, Cooper says “no”
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868).


The Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Under-17 Team have four weeks left to prepare for their opening Concacaf Under-17 Championship match against Canada on 11 February in Guatemala City.

As it turns out, an exhibition match against a Footy Fest All Star Team may no longer be part of those preparations.

Last night, the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFA) informed the public about the match, via its social media pages. The game was scheduled for 6pm at the Police Barracks in St James on Saturday 14 January.

“The best young players in Trinidad and Tobago would be on show,” stated the TTFA promo. “Who are you supporting!?”

However, Wired868 understands the National Under-17 Team technical staff, which is led by head coach Shawn Cooper, scoffed at the fixture and will decline the opportunity.

TTFA acting general secretary Amiel Mohammed, who was initially introduced to the local football body as personal assistant to Normalisation Committee chairman Robert Hadad, is believed to be behind the idea.

The Footy Fest event, which is run by Unveil, is a day-long seven-a-side competition between Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) teams. Although school teams compete, it is an informal arrangement made directly with students who often take part without coaches.

The TTFA’s idea appears to be that after the schoolboys play a half-dozen small-sided Footy Fest games amongst themselves, the organisers would throw together a team on the fly to challenge the National Under-17 Team in an 11-a-side exhibition match.

Arguably, it marked a new low for the TTFA in preparation for a Concacaf tournament—although coach Jason Spence’s National Women’s Under-17 and Under-20 Teams got no practice games whatsoever.

Mohammed, as is customary for TTFA officials during the Hadad-led era, did not respond to a request for comment on the proposed friendly.

Cooper, a veteran of three Concacaf youth competitions, was unimpressed and, according to a source, felt that a game in a fete match environment was not what they wanted right now.

The underlying issue for the current National Under-17 Team appears to be the TTFA’s inability to access and fund proper international friendlies, so as to allow coaches to test players and tactics against challenging opposition in conditions that closer mirror competitive action.

Men’s National Under-20 Team head coach Angus Eve got two friendly matches away to the Costa Rica Under-20s and one against professional Costa Rican club team, Sporting FC, before their Concacaf competition last June.

Ideally, a coach would want two or three testing friendlies before he or she has culled their team and after they arrived at a final squad. But Eve at least got something to work with.

Thus far, according to TTFA statements on the matter, Cooper has not been assured of even the limited exposure afforded to Eve’s troops.

Inadequate preparation apart, the National Under-17 Team is believed to have some worthy talent with local-based players like defender Lyshaun Morris, midfielder Josiah Ochoa and attacker Lindell Sween all catching the eye at scrimmages, alongside overseas-based call-ups such as goalkeeper Ailan Pantor, flanker Rio Cardines and Jeremiah Cateau.

Cooper was unavailable for comment, as he is attending a TTFA ‘A’ License coaching course at present.

Up to the time of publication, the proposed fixture between the National Under-17 Team and the Footy Fest All Star Team remained on the TTFA’s social media pages.

Cooper names U-17 40-man provisional squad.
TTFA Media.


Trinidad and Tobago’s U-17 Men’s Team head coach Shawn Cooper has named his provisional 40-man squad for the 2023 Concacaf Men’s U-17 championship scheduled for Guatemala next month.

Cooper has been overseeing preparations of the squad for the past few months and is now focusing on the final leg of the build-up and is expected to name his final team in early February.

“We’re coming to that phase of the preparations where precision matters and whatever we do is based on getting the best possible group of players in the final squad for the tournament,” Cooper told TTFA Media.

“Of course there have been some minor challenges but this is not unexpected and we’ve worked around this so far. The next couple weeks will be critical because we are also awaiting further information on the availability of some of the overseas-based players due to commitments with their teams outside. But the group in training now has been committed, disciplined and driven towards not just making the final cut but also competing when we get to Guatemala. I think the effort given by all the players and staff needs to be commended so far but of course this is just the build-up towards the real thing in a few weeks so have to be switched on throughout,” he added.

T&T opens its campaign against Canada in Group F on February 11th before facing USA on February 13th and Barbados two days later. After Group Stage play, the top three nations in each group will advance to the knockout stage, joining the four 2022 Concacaf U-17 Men’s Qualifiers (CU17Q) group winners: Bermuda, Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, and Puerto Rico.

The Round of 16 matches will take place February 18 and 19, at both venues, followed by the Quarterfinals (February 21 and 22), Semifinals (February 24) and Final (February 26) in Guatemala City.

Three Academy prospects receive international call-ups

https://www.cpfc.co.uk/news/announcement/cardines-grante-lameiras-academy-international-call-ups
/

Crystal Palace Under-18s defenders Rio Cardines and Jake Grante have been called up to represent Trinidad and Tobago Under-17s and the Republic of Ireland Under-18s respectively. Palace Under-16s forward Enrique Lameiras has also been called up to represent Portugal Under-16s.

Cardines, who joined Palace at Under-16s last season, has received his first ever call-up to the Trinidad & Tobago Under-17s side. Despite being a winger earlier in his career, he has impressed at full-back for Rob Quinn’s Under-18s side - scoring in the 4-0 thumping of Fulham at Motspur Park.

He will be a part of the Trinidad and Tobago side competing in the CONCACAF Under-17 Championship in Guatemala, a regional championship where qualification to the FIFA Under-17s World Cup is determined. The full-back will face a tough group against the United States, Canada and Barbados in mid-February and will remain with the squad for the entirety of their run in tournament.

Additionally, centre-back Jake Grante has received a call-up to the Republic of Ireland Under-18s side. This is the first time he has been a part of the Irish Under-18s, having previously been a key feature of the Under-17s side earlier in the season.

Grante has been a mainstay in the Palace Under-18s side, featuring 12 times and keeping four clean sheets. He will join up with Colin O’Brien’s side for two games against Hungary in Pintar, Spain.

Finally, Enrique Lameiras, who was a part of the Crystal Palace Under-15s side which won the U15 Floodlit Cup South last season, will join up with the Portugal Under-16s side as they take part in a UEFA U16 Development Tournament in The Algarve, Portugal.

UEFA launched its Development Tournaments in 2012 as a way of offering elite male and female youth players the opportunity to enjoy intense international matches and learn about overseas travel as part of a squad.

Lameiras’ Portugal side will face the Netherlands, France and Germany in a four-team group mid way through February.

T&T coach Shawn Cooper names strong squad for Concacaf U-17 Champs.
T&T Newsday Reports.


HEAD coach of the T&T men’s Under-17 national Team Shawn Cooper has announced his 20-man squad for the Concacaf Under-17 Championship to be held in Guatemala from February 11 to 26.

Cooper released the roster to the TT Football Association (TTFA) and the media shortly before a press briefing on Wednesday afternoon.

The squad includes five players from the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL) Premiership champions, St Benedict’s College – namely, Lyshaun Morris, Josiah Ochoa, Derrel Garcia and Jeremiah Niles and Malachi Webb.

Three players from the Premiership runners-up Fatima College were also called up. Goalkeeper Jaden Ottley, defender Jaden Williams and striker Michael Chaves will all represent the yellow and blue outfit from the north on the national youth team.

To add some foreign experience to the roster, Cooper included Crystal Palace’s Rio Cardines. The American sextet of Ailan Panton, Samuel Duncan, Jeremiah Cateau, Armani Rowe, Dominic Wilson and Tyrell Moore were also selected. The young Warriors’ coach believes that these players will be key members of his team, not only for the tournament but also for the future.

On papaer, the young Soca Warriors, on paper, face a difficult task at the tournament having been drawn alongside the United States, Canada and Barbados in Group B.

To prepare for the battle ahead, they will play two matches against fellow tournament participants, Jamaica, on February 4 and 7 in Kingston, Jamaica.

In his press briefing on Wednesday afternoon, Cooper stated, “I, alongside the staff, had a very tedious task in selecting these players. But, I think that they are working very hard and they are looking forward to this competition.”

He continued, “Going through the screening, we wanted players who could have added value to us and not (those who are) just equal to some of our (current) guys. I think, going through the process, we realised that there were about five or six players who can add some sort of experience to the young chaps that we have coming out of the SSFL.”

“We also have an under-14 player – Seth Hadid – who came through the screening and we will be taking him to Jamaica. So, the squad (for the Jamaica trip) will not be of 20 (players), but it will be 21. We think his development needs a game or two at the top level because, as far as I see, he’s (a step) above most of the (other) under-14s.”

“I have always thought that, when picking an under-17 team, you must select about three youngsters who will be around for the next under-17 (cycle) for some continuity, and Seth Hadid is one that I think has a bright future and I’m looking for big things from him.”

Cooper also believes that the players he selected, despite having no international experience, are capable of competing at a regional tournament. “They have a lot of potential”, he said, “(I think that) going to Jamaica will prepare them. They will have an idea (of what playing other countries will be like) because, remember, we haven’t played any international games before.”

“Most of them are just playing with their secondary schools. (But) we (do) have a couple of players coming from the US and England who would have a bit more experience. But, because we didn’t have the opportunity to go through the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) qualifying stage, we were barred from giving the boys the chance (of international football) going into this final leg of (the) Concacaf (Championship).”

The two group games against the US and Canada will prove to be the team’s biggest tests. However, Cooper is confident that his Warriors can match the North American juggernauts and deliver results.

He expressed, “We (Trinidad and Tobago) have matched them before. The last time we played the US U-17s back in 2015, we lost 2-0 with Pulisic being one of the scorers. Before that, in 2013, we played Canada and also lost 2-0. So, I think we can match them. They have a lot more experience than us but, on the day, it’s youth football.”

“They (USA and Canada) are carrying professional players (to the tournament); we are carrying schoolboy footballers. But I think the mentality is what needs to change. The boys are taking the advice they are getting and I’m expecting big things from them.”

T&T will open their campaign against Canada on February 11. Addressing the preparation for the maiden fixture, Cooper stated, “Right about now, what we are dealing with is the structure and organisation (of the team). We need to be organised to play against these teams.”

“We don’t want to be leaking goals, so we want to be very strong at the back. Transitioning going forward, we have a lot of guys who were dynamic in the SSFL – guys like (Lindell) Sween, (Josiah) Ochoa and (Michael) Chaves who can put the ball in the back of the net with ease. But what we really want to do is have the team structured properly that can be in the game for long periods.”

The top three teams in each group advance to the Round of 16 knockout stage from 18 February, while the four Concacaf semi-finalists qualify automatically for the Peru 2023 Under-17 World Cup.
