Trinidad and Tobago’s national senior men’s football coach, Angus Eve, expressed his satisfaction with the impressive 7-1 victory over The Bahamas in the World Cup qualifying match on June 8. The Soca Warriors bounced back from a lacklustre draw against Grenada with a stellar performance in St Kitts, showcasing their dominance on the field.

The team, led by Eve, put on a spectacular display, with braces from Malcolm Shaw and Duane Muckette, along with goals from Alvin Jones, Reon Moore, and Nathaniel James. This victory marked the second-largest win in Trinidad and Tobago’s World Cup qualifying history, highlighting their strong performance against The Bahamas.

Eve commended his team for their resilience and determination to secure the win, emphasizing the importance of the result and the three crucial points. Despite facing weaker opposition, Eve was pleased with the team’s performance and their ability to bounce back from the previous draw.

The head coach defended his decision to adopt a more defensive approach against The Bahamas, citing the need to rectify the shortcomings from the previous match. He praised the team’s passing and fluency on the field, noting the significant improvement in their gameplay.

While the team’s focus now shifts to the Concacaf Nations League in September, Eve remains optimistic about the future, looking to build chemistry within the squad and provide opportunities for young talents. With debuts from promising players like Steffen Yeates and Dantaye Gilbert, Eve is confident in the team’s potential and is eager to continue scouting for talent, particularly in Major League Soccer (MLS).

As the Soca Warriors prepare for future competitions, Eve is determined to strengthen the team and elevate their performance on the international stage. With a solid foundation and a talented roster, Trinidad and Tobago’s football team is poised for success in the upcoming tournaments.
