Our ladies team could take solace I the fact that they are right in the thick of this. To concede the game before we play it is in my opinion fool hearted.  I am not denying the powerless of the USA but in sports anything is possible. With most of our teams I. Tournaments, anything is possible. We pulled it out in 2006, we stepped up in the Gold Cup. At times teams rise to the level of the opposition.

I say " TALK SUCCESS THINK a SUCCESS  and EXPECT SUCCESS " - ladies remove all doubts- they change shorts like you do- they run
Ike you doBut you cannot be in awe and get caught watching instead of competing . In the clip I saw of the game against Mexico- the first goal was soft and to me it appeared that we were a little slow to respond to the players we ought to be marking.
All the best go out and leave everything on the field. Believe that miracles do haven and the USA eh no invincible force. It all beings with BELIEF

Re: the discussion on narrowing the gap

You narrow the gap by giving these players more games together consistently versus quality opponents. This MEX team has been about that business. Aside from the playing pay-off, there is a psychological dividend you get from that exposure.

Move your U17s into the U20s smoothly. Don't make hasty, arbitrary decisions about players based on rushing to put a squad together. Do the players justice. Do the nation justice.

Mexico U-20 women beat T&T to earn top spot in Group B.
CONCACAF.COM.


GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands – Mexico will meet Costa Rica in the semifinals of the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship after defeating Trinidad & Tobago 3-0 in the Group B decider on Tuesday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

The Mexicans made it five wins in five all-time encounters against Trinidad in the competition, concluding first-round play with maximum points from three games.  The runner-up Soca Princesses, who lost for the first time in three outings, will meet the Group A champion United States in the second game of Friday’s knockout stage doubleheader

The opening half hour was played at a fairly even pace with little difference between the sides evident.

Mexico finally broke the stalemate, however, in the 33rd minute.  Paloma Zermeño sent a speculative left-footed effort from 28-yards out towards the Trinidad goal that slipped underneath goalkeeper Tenesha Palmer and rolled across the line.

The Tricolor kept its foot on the gas, looking to net a second goal before the break.

Palmer made amends for her earlier misstep in the 42nd minute by leaping magnificently to save a looping header from the edge of the 18-yard box by Zermeño.

In the second minute of first-half injury time, Trinidad went for an equalizer, but Shanisa Camejo’s long-range attempt was seized confidently by goalkeeper by Cecilia Santiago.

Three minutes following the break, Mexico would go ahead, 2-0.  Zermeño popped a corner kick into the air and Paulina Solis was there to head it home.

Seven minutes later, a right-sided cross by Trinidad’s Donika Murray found Brianna Ryce at the top of the box.  The DePaul University midfielder immediately took a shot that Santiago bobbled, but gathered in before the arrival of a lurking Anique Walker.

Solis completed her brace with 13 minutes left in normal time, converting on a penalty kick after Fabiola Ibarra was fouled in the box.

The tournament finalists will earn tickets to the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, accompanied by the winner of the match for third place.

I see the goalie was replaced in the 69th minute. However, I haven't seen anything about her being injured. Anybody know what the deal is?

Did you see the defending for those goals? Minus the 1st one.

So here is a question for this scenario going forward. If you were the coach would you rest some of your top players in the semi final against the US so they could be fresh for the third place game against CR? or do you play your best squad against the US to see if you can get a good result against them (not saying they can't), but strategically, what may be your options here? Looking to qualify up front by beating the US or make a sacrifice decision on that game and go all out against CR?

I know it's so cynical, but I'd definitely rest - you're playing for both the team and the fans to have the chance to play in the World Cup and I think that should be the focus. The girls are doing fantastic work, and it'd be a crime not to see them rewarded with a World Cup place, so lets do everything to get there. It also lets some fringe players sample the atmosphere of a cup tournament, and a great experience for them.

Having seen the highlights  of the... Mexico vs Trinidad/Tobago match...  i am absolutely convince  as i have previously stated  there's nothing to fear where mexico  or any other team is concerned. as a matter of fact the mexican  team is nothing special  in my view .  as a matter of fact the goals conceded were soft goals .....  its a pity this Trinidad/Tobago team did not have ample time together as i have seen some notable talent in the squad ....... i hope the lessons learnt from this game against mexico  can be catylist to build on for the upcoming games .... i do believe and have faith in this team of players  .... they need to regroup and remain focus ..... wishing all the players the very best  ........you all can get the job done ... play on,  fight on   we believe ... yes you can ..  believe  in your abilities young ladies ...... remain focus ..  ........ have no fear and  get the job done

We really underestimating CR.

Let's look at context. We have gotten the most favorable draw ever. Our 2 opening games were against teams that has never been to the CFU qualifiers. We won, but for me it was not convincing. Mexico game has given us incite into our next level play. People saying soft goals, but it was 3 goals. We need to look at the action or lack thereof that led to the goals. When we were put under pressure, we crumbled. I know that this is not the POPULAR view right now as we are in "we reach mode". From reading posts on here about closing the gap and listening Shabazz and all these coaches talk, it seems that this is, what we have been planning for, what we have been working for, but in effect it's not as we do not have a plan.

We eh reach and the gaps eh closing, for a number of reasons. Just look at the U17 results, it's a good indicator. The USA is already cycling up their U15s to BJ Snow, and the U17s to French. The US U17 has a camp this month and then move up. We have nothing planned for our U17s other than a few training sessions at home.

As much as we are celebrating, we need to keep things in perspective. We should learn from history, the MNT came back from Germany and 0, strike squad 0, our u17 men's from the T&T WC in 01, 0, the u17 women's from T&T 0, Corneal boys from the WC 0. To progress and close the gap we need to be realistic and continue to press the administration to put the necessary structure in place and allocated the necessary resources.

Elan  i really do not get the impression anyone is underestimating costa rica  or any other team for that matter, its all about   respecting   each team  ,  as i have duly mentioned , fear no team ... matters not who we play ...... thats a mentality we must step away from , yet at the same time respect  each team , i am here to encourage and support  our  team ( Trinidad /Tobago)....  let others focus on theirs  its simple as that....  all due respect elan .... we have not achieve the goal of qualifying  as yet but  should strive to get there,  a game at a time ....

We definitely do not rest anyone for the match versus the USA. This is what the girls have been training for. We play all our starters as usual, we play the game like we have been all tournament & that is too attack and keep attacking. We saw what happened with the U-17's recently when they tried to defend only. Their is no energy to attack when you are chasing the ball in your half all the time.

I would play a 3-5-2 or a 3-4-3 and instruct our wide mid-fielders of their responsibilities on both sides of the ball (that is providing we have practiced these formations throughout our training-sessions). If we rest our best & then we get smoked everyone's "mindsets" will be deflated. Our confidence is high right now despite what just occurred against the Mexican's & we need every ounce of confidence we can muster moving forward. We will get scored on however everyone's mindsets must be that we can also score. Just my two cents for what it is worth.

3-4-3 or 3-5-2 vs the USA 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 is asking to be destroyed.

We definitely do not rest anyone for the match versus the USA. This is what the girls have been training for. We play all our starters as usual, we play the game like we have been all tournament & that is too attack and keep attacking. We saw what happened with the U-17's recently when they tried to defend only. Their is no energy to attack when you are chasing the ball in your half all the time.

I would play a 3-5-2 or a 3-4-3 and instruct our wide mid-fielders of their responsibilities on both sides of the ball (that is providing we have practiced these formations throughout our training-sessions). If we rest our best & then we get smoked everyone's "mindsets" will be deflated. Our confidence is high right now despite what just occurred against the Mexican's & we need every ounce of confidence we can muster moving forward. We will get scored on however everyone's mindsets must be that we can also score. Just my two cents for what it is worth.


Cheers   19

3-4-3 or 3-5-2 vs the USA 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 is asking to be destroyed.
First off, it doesn't matter what formation is used or who plays, they will be destroyed. These are the facts. The U.S. takes their football (especially women's football) seriously. We do not. The U.S. makes sure their teams are well prepared, well trained (from early) and regularly play against quality opposition, we do not. They put a support system in place so players can excel to and maintain their full potential. Lord knows we do not. It is time T&T stop playing the fool with this try ah thing football. This goes for the men too. Do the research, get the resources,go to work and be consistent with your efforts. That's how you qualify for a world cup. Not hoping and praying for a miracle. Ridiculousness.
Only the humble can be truly great!

I don't think TT coaches underestimates any Central Amer. teams. I think they feel TT teams are on par with most except Mex. I think they are just below par in terms of skill level. I find the Central American women play just like their men team. Ball possesion. But they lack that speed and power.  Whether the coach use the first team against the US is a catch 22. If they use their "second" team an get 22 zip, that will be demoralizing. But the coach should definitely use some or most of the 2nd team players. Mind you, the US will probably start with a strong team because they don't want to lose by some miracle. They want to play in the final game.

Coach Élan please give us your best formation so we won't get destroyed. 

Cheers

alyuh not ease nah...... I not in the caymans I cyah just call formation jus so. I not good like alyuh. I know Arsenal, Chelsea, Man United, hell even Bayern with all they wingers doh run up on Barca with a 3-5-2 or 3-4-3.

Leh me tell you what I do know, that 3 USA forwards vs 3  of our defenders is not a good look for us. Also 3 USA CMF vs 2 of our CMF is not a good look. The least of our worries is formation.

Hey we've created history already let's all be happy and giddy with success.

I may have issues with Shabbaz, but he correct when he says that women's football is like the outside child, or something like that.

U-20 girls defy the odds.
By Shaun Fuentes.


For too long T&T has failed to do much more than concede goals, perhaps score a few and attain the odd point here or there at the Concacaf women’s level.

Aside from the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup which was hosted here in 2010, T&T has never managed to hold their own against world opposition.

But years of persistence seems to be paying off and the current crop of T&T U-20 players—several of them coming out of the development programme dating back to 2009—are determined to become a force in the region and to raise the level of the local women’s game.

“It’s an amazing feat to get into the semifinal round of a Concacaf tournament. We’ve done it with the boys but the girls have always had a mountainous task and to achieve that in 2014 is commendable,” said T&T Football Association (TTFA) technical director Anton Corneal, who is with the team in the Cayman Islands for the current final round.

T&T will face the United States in semifinal number two tomorrow but can still book a place in the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada. Even with a loss as they will have the chance to contest the third place playoff on Sunday at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

The team’s qualifying campaign is supported by the Ministry of Sports and Sportt, and Minister of Sports Anil Roberts is eager to see them continue their fine run which includes victories so far over Honduras and hosts Cayman Islands.

“We’ve worked really hard as a team and we want this badly,” said captain Anique Walker, who has been among the outstanding players in the competition so far.

“I was part of the U-17 team in 2010 and I know what it’s like to be at that level and I want to experience it again. There will be no greater feeler than helping the team qualify for the U-20 World Cup. We are working towards taking women’s football in T&T to a respectable level, especially in Concacaf.”

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

Progress shouldn't be measured by how far we've come but by how far we have left to go....Until we can compete with the likes of Mexico, USA and Canada, we ain't reach nowhere. I'm happy for the girls and wish them all the best as they try to move forward, but like DHW said, I'm not getting carried away just yet...

Coop's the only good thing he say is that the women's "program" is treated terribly.

Mind you, he was incharge for over 10 years and what did he do to help improve the women's game?

You're being incredibly negative in my opinion - all long journeys start with a few steps and these are definitely steps in the right direction. To rubbish them because we have a couple hundred more is to miss the bigger picture (ironically) - no long distance can be reached without every little step.
