Coach: Blame Trinidad’s level of play


Added 30 September 2017


PORT OF SPAIN – Head coach Dennis Lawrence says his inexperience had little to do with Trinidad and Tobago’s failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The former national defender was appointed to the top position in January this year with T&T one from bottom of the standings in the CONCACAF final round qualifying tournament, after losing their first two matches.

Under Lawrence, they won just once and lost five times, with the last of those defeats earlier this month against Panama sealing their demise.

“Unfortunately we did not qualify for Russia for many obvious reasons,” Lawrence said. (CMC)
