Soca Warriors played a nervous game – coach Stephen Hart

first_img..draw 2-2 with GuatemalaTRINIDAD and Tobago coach, Stephen Hart, believes the performance of the Soca Warriors during Friday night’s 2-2 draw against Guatemala was underpar.The result put the twin-island republic into CONCACAF’s Hexagonal round, the final stage of World Cup qualification for the region.Despite what the result means, the coach believes the team should have played a better 90 minutes.“It was a bittersweet moment,” said Hart.“Overall, I thought we played with a lot of nerves,” he added.“I thought we were sloppy, it’s almost like we didn’t want the ball and we didn’t move it effectively.”Despite the overall play, Trinidad and Tobago managed to come from 1-0 down to level things before half time.The Soca Warriors would then go ahead but failed to keep their lead as veteran Guatemalan forward, Carlos Ruiz, made them pay from a rebound the T&T ‘keeper gave up.With parity returning to the scoreline in the second half, the T&T fans were in for a nervy final few minutes.“We had some chances to kill off the game. Of course we failed to do that and it became a game of panic after that,” said Hart.While in agreement with some of the coach’s sentiments on the game, T&T’s skipper, Kenwyne Jones, prefers to look at the glass as half full.“There’s an old saying, if it’s not broken don’t try to fix it,” he said, responding to suggestions that changes needed to be made for the Hexagonal round.“At the end of the day I’m satisfied that we got into the hex. The most important thing about tonight was getting that result and going to the next stage.”last_img read more
