CornellThe T&T Senior team is preparing for next Wednesday’s friendly international against Jamaica at the Marvin Lee Stadium. The game will be the second of a double header with the T&T Women’s Under 17 team tackling the Women’s  Senior team  at 4pm.

T&T has its sight set on going all the way through to the Digicel Caribbean Cup Finals which will be staged in Martinique from November 26-December 5. And for Wednesday’s friendly versus the

“Reggae Boyz”  who will arrive with five overseas-base pros,  T&T have also drafted in three overseas-based players including San Jose Earthquakes striker Cornell Glen and Puerto Rico Islanders duo Keon Daniel and Kendall Jagdeosingh.

 W Connection midfielder Clyde Leon and Caledonia AIA’s Densill Theobald will miss the encounter because of injuries. Glen believes T&T should  have what it takes to handle the Jamaicans.

“Well the equation changes up a bit now that are preparing to play a team such as Haiti in Stage two of the Digicel Cup but we welcome such a challenge because we believe they are a pretty decent opposition,” Glen  told TTFF Media.

“Trinidad and Tobago, Haiti and Jamaica are considered to be the among the top teams in the Caribbean and this allows us to have another valuable match following the one with Jamaica on Wednesday.

Right now the focus is on Jamaica and hopefully I can bring my form at the moment to the national team. I’m feeling good at the moment and I’ve been involved a lot for San Jose in recent matches. Hopefully I can hit the mark on the international stage,” Glen added.
