I have had some wonderful Saturdays but my goodness, Saturday, June 24th was definitely a day to forget.
It started well enough, as I went to the beach in the company of my beautiful granddaughter, who made me do anything she wanted; and before that, I had looked at India struggle against Afghanistan.
Then I saw the West Indies grab the early initiative against the Kiwis in a must-win encounter for the Caribbean side.
Two second-half goals by Armando Cooper in the 52nd and Edgar Barcenas in the 68th minute for Panama, confined T&T to its first defeat 2-0 in Group D of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States on Tuesday night.
The result now means that the Soca Warriors will have to get a result each when they face the host in their second match on Saturday, and then four days later when they take on regional rivals Guyana.
The T&T senior men's football team will face Thailand in a friendly football match on October 14th in Bangkok. The match will follow T&T's friendly against the UAE in Spain which takes place five weeks before.
Head coach of the team Dennis Lawrence told TTFA Media, the match will prove to be essential as he prepares his side for next year’s CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup campaign.
Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior Men will travel to St George’s, Grenada to play the Grenada Men’s Senior Team in an International Friendly on April 29th.
The match will be part of the official opening of the Grenada National Football League.
Trinidad and Tobago head coach Dennis Lawrence will use the match as another tune-up for his home-based players as the country looks ahead to the 2018 World Cup qualifier away to the United States on June 8th and Costa Rica on June 13th.
