Lawrence announces 20-man Roster for Venezuela friendly

A Trinidad and Tobago 20-man squad arrived in Caracas around midday today for Monday’s International friendly against Venezuela at the Estadio Olimpico at 6:00pm.

Head Coach Dennis Lawrence today announced the squad that will go into the match following Thursday’s 2-0 defeat to Honduras in CONCACAF Nations League qualifying. Not included is captain Khaleem Hyland, defender Daneil Cyrus as well as US-based duo Joevin Jones and Kevin Molino due to club commitments.

“You always run the risk of that but then you have short term goals, medium term goals and you got long term goals. The way I look at it now we have to think long term,” Lawrence said after the defeat on Thursday.

“Every game now counts for something Now you look at it and you ask yourself, is he ready or is he not so the only way you can find out is putting them in the situation. So we got Venezuela and the only way we are going to know if somebody like Keston Julien, Andre Fortune, if they are ready is we need put them in that situation and then find out of they are ready. We need to put them in the environment and find out what would happen,” Lawrence added.
