Trinidad and Tobago’s men’s football team coach Dennis Lawrence says his charges have to rebound with two wins against the USA and Guyana to advance in the 2019 Gold Cup.
T&T endured their sixth game on the trot without scoring as they were defeated two-nil by Panama as their Gold Cup campaign got off to a disappointing start at the Allianz Field in Minnesota, on Tuesday night. T&T are scheduled to play the USA on Saturday.
“So, two soft goals to give away. We have dug ourselves in a bit of a hole now which means we have to start thinking about getting two wins from the next two games,” Lawrence assessed. “That’s international football. If you don’t take your chances and you give away sloppy possession you can get hurt. Panama has got quality players that can do that to you. We now need to recover very quickly, pull away from all the negatives and go onto to the next game.”
