While the Senior Men’s Team is in the midst of World Cup qualifying action, the Women will also be brought into action as the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association has secured two international warm up matches against Venezuela’s Senior Women’s Team on March 26th and March 29th at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva. The games will kick off at 4pm and 7pm respectively.
This will be the first pair of international matches for head coach Carolina Morace and her staff since they commenced duties in January.
Morace spoke about the upcoming games prior to Wednesday evening’s training session at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training pitch, saying she was grateful to have the opportunity to test her team against the South Americans.
“It is good to have the opportunity to play two international games at the end of the month and it’s good for the preparation of the team. I have to say thank you to David John Williams because the President has worked hard to have these two matches here,” Morace told TTFA Media.
“It is a test for us and it will be the second time I will have the opportunity to see the players who are based in the United States. We will not be fast because we still are in the early stage of our preparations. We have had some friendly games against the local boys and against the Under 20s and these two games will give us a good opportunity to measure where we are at this point,” the Italian-born added.
“Some of the US-based players will be coming back for the game. I still have not had the chance to see some of them because they are with Colleges and even though they want to come, they are not being released to us as yet and their coaches want to determine when they are able to come but unfortunately I decide when have we to start and finish the camp,” Morace said.
The team is in training up to five days per week.
