TRINIDAD 2 – USA 1

October 16, 2008 at 5:24 pm (Football, Sports, Trinidad) (, , , , , , )

Goals came in the second half.

A brilliant combination among Chris Birchall, Carlos Edwards and Russell Latapy resulted in goal number one with Russell scoring for T&T.

The USA equalized shortly after with a defensive blunder from the Trinidadians resulting in a goal from Davies.

Trinidad and Tobago was then awarded a penalty after Stern John was violently pulled down in the box by Altidore. Dwight Yorke easily converted.

A number of attempts were made by the US strikers after, but they were all off target.

I believe this is one of the few or even first win over the USA by Trinidad in football of all time.

The victory coincides with Cuba also beating Guatemala by 2-1, which places Trinidad in a good position to advance to the next round of qualification should they beat Cuba.

Wow….is God really a Trini??
