T and T secure top spot in CFU Under 17

BEAUSEJOUR, St. Lucia, CMC-Trinidad and Tobago have moved a step closer to qualifying for the 2015 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Chile.

Their national Under-17 men’s team secured the top spot in their Caribbean Football Union preliminary group with a 3-2 victory over St Lucia at the Beausejour Stadium over the weekend.

T&T, who had beaten Grenada and Curacao, topped the group with nine points and have advanced to the CFU Final Round in Haiti next month.

The Trinidadians were featured in a thriller with the St.Lucians as both teams needed the win to advance.

However, St. Lucia only needed a draw since both teams were on maximum six (6) points with the hosts enjoying a better goal difference.

Dareem Daniel, Anthony Herbert and a second half winner from Herbert sealed the win for the young Trinidadians while St Lucia pressed for an equalizer in the closing ten minutes of the match.

“The boys saved their best performance for the last game in this group phase. We were in control of the game from the first whistle,” head coach Shawn Cooper told Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) media.

“Credit to St Lucia as they pressed us on the break with there quick counter attacking and they were a very athletic team with some quality players in their squad”.

T&T will vie for one of five spots from the Caribbean for the CONCACAF Final round in Honduras next year towards the 2015 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Chile.
