The Trinidad and Tobago national team chose 17 players for an upcoming camp ahead of World Cup qualifiers against the U.S. Men’s National Team and Costa Rica.
The players were brought into the team to start training in Boulder, Colorado, ahead of Trinidad and Tobago’s World Cup qualifier against the United States on June 8.
“The idea is to get there and try to acclimatize as quick as possible so we will be starting work there immediately,” Trinidad and Tobago coach Dennis Lawrence said in CONCACAF’s release. “Seventeen players will be traveling on Tuesday. Some will be coming back because the final squad has not been selected as yet. We expect to have the full contingent on June 4.”
By the time the full squad is named, MLS players like Kenywyne Jones (Atlanta United FC), Kevin Molino (Minnesota United FC), Cordell Cato (San Jose Earthquakes), Joevin Jones (Seattle Sounders) and Mekeil Williams (Colorado Rapids) are expected to join the team.
The USMNT kicks off against Trinidad & Tobago on June 8. T&T moves on the next week to face Costa Rica on June 13.
