"I am a little bit disappointed," said Trinidad and Tobago under-17 and assistant senior team coach, Anton Corneal. "I felt we did enough to at least get a draw and to come away with nothing is disappointing."
The result of Tuesday’s second meeting between this country’s National Under 17 team and Mexico was another 2-0 victory for the visitors at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva. But it was also another encouraging performance by the junior “Soca Warriors” and head coach Anton Corneal felt there was sufficient evidence to suggest that the young team was making reasonable progress ahead of the final CONCACAF qualifying round towards the FIFA Under 17 World Championship in Korea.
National team coach Anton Corneal would have had reasons to feel that his Trinidad and Tobago Under 17 team was making some progress at the end of Sunday’s friendly international against Mexico’s National Under 17 team at Fatima Grounds, Mucurapo.
Two defensive lapses decided yesterday's international football friendly at Fatima College ground, Mucurapo as the Mexico under-17 team came away 2-0 victors despite a gutsy performance by the host nation.
