Bitter end to T and T women’s World Cup dream
GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, CMC-Trinidad and Tobago’s dream of becoming the first team to represent the Caribbean at the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup came to a bitter end in the Cayman Islands on Sunday.
The Trinidadians allowed a three-one advantage against Costa Rica to slip as the Central Americans romped to a 7-3 victory in extra time at Truman Bodden Sports Complex.
The four extra time goals against a tired Trinidad outfit spurred Costa Rica to come-from-behind in the third place play-off.
The T&T Soca Princesses led 3-1 at the half and seemed on course towards creating history after two first half goals from captain Anique Walker.
