A Ryan Augustine double strike, along with a Dominic McDougall goal, were not enough as Trinidad and Tobago Beach Warriors went down to hosts Costa Rica in Group C action of the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifiers on Monday.
Costa Rica were up 2-0 after goals from Jonaiker Gamboa and Christian Sanchez, but T&T equalised with a double strike from Ryan Augustine. However two quick goals from Christian Sanchez and Greiven Pacheco gave the hosts another 2 goal cushion but Dominic Mc Dougall made it 4-3. But soon after Mc Dougall’s goal, Pablo Calvo made sure of the 2 (5-3) goal win for Costa Rica.
Trinidad and Tobago will play USA on Tuesday, who beat Turks and Caicos Islands 11-1 in their opener. The top 3 teams advance to the quarter finals.
