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
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.
