T&T last Chance Against Paraguay
Trinidad and Tobago last Chance Against Paraguay
Trinidad and Tobago impressive start has placed the warriors in a position where their game against Paraguay could possibly put the country in a position to advance to the second round of World Cup 2006. After a heartbreaking lost against England at Nuremberg, conceding two goals in the last ten minutes of play, the warriors would now have to take care of business at the offensive end of the field and score a minimum of two goals against Paraguay and also hope that England defeat Sweden by also a two goal or more. The positive for T&T in regards to the England versus Sweden game is that either team could afford to lose if they will like to avoid a match up with Germany in the second round. The warriors match up against Paraguay favors Trinidad and Tobago due to the fact that the warriors are looking for that all important win while Paraguay conceivably could be less motivated with no chance to advance but just to finish their schedule on a positive note. Trinidad and Tobago will have to score goals in this game and that should be all the reason coach Beenhakker needs to resort to a 3-4-3 formation with Russell Latapy in the starting line up to showcase his magic and create scoring opportunities for the Soca Warriors to advance.
The warriors could ill afford to hold back and defend but to finally show
the World that the team has offensive power and talent such as Evans Wise, Collin Samuel, Russell Latapy, Carlos Edwards Dwight Yorke and a future in 20 year old Kenwyne Jones.
It is entirely up to coach Le Beenhakker and thus far he has delivered the best game plan but is it the time to gamble? Definitely this is now a Cup game with no more games to be play if the mission is not accomplished.
