Marc Gangia Thread.

Denmark-born Marc Gangia elated to join Soca Warriors.
By Jelani Beckles (T&T Newsday).


AFTER watching the Soca Warriors play at the 2006 Fifa World Cup, Denmark-born Marc Gangia is now getting the chance to train with the T&T men's senior football team.

Gangia, 26, is eligible to play for T&T through his father.

Gangia, who is a striker for Dalum IF in the fifth tier of Danish football, spoke to the media during a Soca Warriors training session at Larry Gomes Stadium in Malabar, Arima yesterday. T&T are preparing for a Conmebol Copa America qualifier against Canada on March 23 in Frisco, Texas.

"It is a big opportunity hopefully to be a part of," Gangia said. "It is a big step for the country if we could qualify for the (2026) World Cup and also in the summer (Copa tournament). It is a big match ahead in Canada, so we will see if we could get through. It is nice to be here."

Gangia has visited T&T before.

"This is probably my fifth time now. My dad has a lot of family here, so we have been here a couple of times."

He has fond memories of the Soca Warriors. "I remember from the 06 World Cup and also following the (English) Premier League (with T&T footballers) Dwight Yorke and Kenwyne Jones and players like that."

Gangia made the decision a decade ago to play for T&T, but the process has been a lengthy one.

"Approximately ten years ago it started, but it has been a long process with the passports and all those kinds of things."

He is settling down at the training camp, saying, "The weather is hot compared to Denmark so there is a transition I have to get used to, but I think the boys have been nice and taking good care of me, so it has been good so far."

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

Since 2017 he's been trying to get a T&T passport.

Another possibly forced omission was Denmark-born central midfielder Marc Gangia, who had been trying to get a Trinidad and Tobago passport just before the team (TT U-20) left for a pre-tournament tour in Colombia.

He's a striker for that club since 2022 and this is what Wikipedia says about that club:

"In April 2023, Dalum were mentioned among the worst teams of Europe of the 2022–23 season, having recorded 23 losses out of 23 games, 0 points and a goal difference of –77.[2] They soon after broke their remarkable losing record, beating AB Tårnby 3–0 on 22 April 2023."  :rotfl: :rotfl:

Very interesting choice, since we trying to solidify that spot with a solid striker as coach said.  :worried: ???

so what happened to the other players that are eligible?

Too good for Eve to select? Eve as I said is being paid to not select the best players, the other big nations don't want a talented TT team to face to qualify etc..

I am sorry but I find myself wondering how the hell a man playing in the FIFTH TIER of Danish football has been called up to train?

I know we need strikers, well you can't say they aren't leaving any stone unturned.

The fellow who was drafted by Toronto should be in the mix somehow.

@VB I said the same thing. However, I say give the youth a chance to see.

To be fair to Eve, this 35 man call up is just to see who to add to the core 14 players.

The #1 and 2 MLS draft should get looked at. No if ands or buts.

@ madness. I think Haynes has something up his sleeve with the U20 team inno. He seems very relaxed and I'm getting a very good feeling about them
