Trinidad and Tobago’s Under 20 men pulled off a 2-0 victory over Club America’s Under 20 team in Cali, Colombia in their penultimate training match on Saturday.
Defender Noah Powder and Joshua Leach were the men on target for T&T with goals in the 9th and 23rd minutes respectively.
T&T will play their final match of the tour on Monday against Cardoso FC’s Under 20 team prior to their departure for San Jose, Costa Rica on Wednesday for the CONCACAF Under 20 Men’s Championship.
Head Coach Brian Williams commented on the victory, saying it was a timely confidence booster for his men.
“It was a good win for us coming to the end to what has been a highly intense and extensive training camp for the team here in Cali,” he told TTFA Media.
“I was pleased with the way we organised our game from the early stages of the game and we managed to avoid some of the errors we had been taking and we were able to score two goals in the first half. It would have been better for us to push on with a couple more goals in the first half but I was satisfied with us being able to prevent the opposition from scoring,” Williams added.
T&T faces Bermuda in their opening match of the Concacaf qualifiers on February 19th.
