U-20s fine-tune ahead of qualifying opener against

The last batch of ten players arrived on Friday, allowing head coach Derek King to move full speed ahead with his training sessions as skipper Shannon Gomez and his teammates prepare for their CONCACAF qualifying opener against Jamaica in Kingston, Jamaica, on Friday.

T&T engaged in their first bit of match practice with a 70-minute scrimmage against a US Soccer Academy outfit behind closed doors which ended 2-0 in favour of the home team at the Sunrise Holiday Inn Ground. “We got a chance to mix it up and take a look at all the players and I am pleased with the level of play at this crucial stage heading into the tournament,” King said, via a TTFA media release. 

King indicated that the opponents were fast and technically correct and this gave him and his staff a perfect opportunity to analyze their charges as they are in the process of finalising the squad for the opening encounter of the championship.

“I am particularly impressed with the level of organisation we showed in attack with Woo Ling (Matthew), Hacksaw (Naveal) and Mitchell (Jabari) handling their roles well. Archer (Leland) also marshaled the defence well and Goalkeeper Johan Welch displayed impressive distribution of the football, so all in all we are rounding into form,” added King.

At seven o’clock tonight, the T&T U-20s face Weston United Alumni at Vizcaya Park in Marimar, Florida, in a warm-up.
