Embattled Trinidad and Tobago Coach Terry Fenwick slammed the TTFA, after the 2-0 win over St Kitts Nevis in our last World Cup Qualifier at ‘home’ in the the Dominican Republic on Tuesday evening. Speaking after the match in which Duane Muckett and captain Khaleem Hyland scored on either side of the half time whistle, Fenwick claimed the team had no international friendlies in the lead up to the qualifiers, save for a 0-7 loss to the USA.
Fenwick who is under fire as he failed to take Trinidad and Tobago past a group comprising of St Kitts/Nevis, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and Guyana said the TTFA’s Normalisation Committee has been dealing with financial debts and that has hampered any support the team needed to prepare for the World Cup Qualifiers. He told the post match media conference they have had very little or no support in the last 18 months since the Normalisation committee was dealing with the financial debts.
The coach was obviously pleased with the win, as that win over group winners St Kitts/Nevis will be used as a springboard for the upcoming Gold Cup qualifiers in July as the Soca Warriors seek to qualify for the confederations premier football tournament.
