Trinidad and Tobago’s Impressive Showing in World Cup Qualifiers

Having secured two positive results to kick off the Concacaf World Cup qualifiers, Trinidad and Tobago’s Head coach Angus Eve is pleased with the team’s performance. The Soca Warriors bounced back from a shaky start against Grenada to dominate Bahamas with a 7-1 victory.

Eve expressed satisfaction with his team’s character and solid platform, as they currently sit second in Group B behind Costa Rica. Despite critics attributing the big win to facing a weaker opponent, Eve highlighted the improvement since Bahamas had eliminated Trinidad and Tobago in the previous World Cup qualifiers.

The coach made seven changes to the starting lineup for the Bahamas match, with players like Malcolm Shaw and Duane Muckette delivering standout performances. Looking ahead, Eve will aim to keep the team sharp with friendly matches before the Nations League in September and the resumption of World Cup qualifying next June.

Trinidad and Tobago’s next matches include hosting St Kitts and Nevis and a potentially crucial clash against Costa Rica. With only the top two teams advancing from each group, Eve’s focus is on guiding the Soca Warriors to the final stage of the qualifiers.
