Where were some of these players during the tenure of former Soca Warriors Coach Terry Fenwick ? Terry Fenwick oversaw what was perhaps the most disappointing period of the Soca Warriors in the recent past, when they failed to qualify out of a group that included St Kitts/Nevis, Puerto Rico, Bahamas and Guyana. Trinidad and Tobago, while finishing the campaign unbeaten, failed to score against 201 ranked Bahamas in a draw that eventually was responsible for being eliminated from the World Cup Qualifying tournament.
Among the 60 players named by new interim coach angus Eve, familiar faces who featured regularly with Dennis Lawrence and even Stephen Hart before him, are recalled to the set up by the former player with the record number of appearances for the Red, White and Black. El Salvador based Jomal ‘Bebo’ Williams(27), local based veteran goalkeeper Marvin Phillip (36) and Alvin Jones (26) whose goal ended the USA’s 2018 World Cup dream, are all back in the running for a place in the Soca Warriors shirt once more.
The team will be trimmed to for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where the Soca Warrios will play Montserrat on July 2nd and possibly Cuba 4 days later, before the tournament proper begins on July 10th.

In addition to the Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors team, former captain and considered as one of this country’s greatest ever players, Russell Latapy is the head coach of Barbados who will be playing Bermuda on June 2nd and can face either Haiti or St Vincent and the Grenadines should they be successful against Bermuda.
