Molino’s goal gives T&T farewell point

Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior Men’s Team left Gold Cup 2019 with a point after three matches as they played to a 1-1 draw with Guyana at Children’s Mercy Park on Wednesday night in a Caribbean derby in Kansas City.

Minnesota United midfielder Kevin Molino scored the equalizer for T&T in the 80th minute after Guyana got the breakthrough on 54 minutes. Former Crystal Palace player Neil Danns coming in off the left side and bending a shot to the far post with his right foot from just inside the 18, the ball hitting the underside of the crossbar and going in for Danns’ third goal of the Gold Cup.

Guyana GK Quillan Roberts had the highlight moment of the first half in the 34th minute.  Molino showed off some dazzling skill in the box before hitting a low shot that forced Roberts to dive down to his right to make a brilliant stop.

The breakthrough for Guyana came in the 54th minute. T&T had only themselves to blame for not putting the game away in the first half with Jomal Williams and Levi Garcia going close. Williams sent a right footed curler to the left which forced Roberts to save to his left. Garcia also forced his way into a good position before missing the mark from inside the box.

Molino leveled it on 80 minutes, the Minnesota United player getting on the end of a ball over the top and cutting around the hesitantly onrushing Roberts and tapping home from an acute angle into an empty net.

Both teams concluded the tournament with one point, with Guyana ahead in third place in Group D on goal difference.
