Jacksonville, FL - Trinidad announced today that they were pulling out of the World Cup Qualifier game this evening leaving the scrambling US squad readying themselves to face giants Tobago with the Hexagonal tournament quest still first in their mind.
Fans of the United States team were still wary of the threat posed by the world football power as TNN reporters spoke to USMNT fan Darryl Holmes about the issue.
"Despite the absence of Trinidad, I'm still concerned," stated Holmes to The Nutmeg News. "They have size and skill. We have Chris Wondolowski. It's kinda a wash. I'm desperate for a win as this will allow me to continue to brag about the United States domination over both Trinidad AND Tobago."
Players themselves are worried that the new Tobago squad will throw the USMNT for a loop with one anonymous player stating, "we are working extra hard to figure out how to defeat Tobago. With Trinidad, it was one thing, but now we have to ensure that we are playing all the MLS players who have veteran experience with the Tobago soccer scene."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as fans of soccer everywhere ready themselves for the spectacle of the USA v TOBAGO.
