This Day in History

Sunday, 20 February 2000

T&T, under former head coach Bertille St Clair reaches the semifinals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup for the first time when they defeat Costa Rica 2-1 at the Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California in front of 18,062 supporters. Goals from Arnold Dwarika (26th) and Mickey Trotman insured T&T a place in the semi-finals. Mickey Trotman (RIP) scored the match winner in the 102nd minute. Paulo Wanchope (89th) scored the lone item for Costa Rica. T&T went on to lose to eventually 2000 Gold Cup champions Canada in the semis. T&T could have taken the lead but David Nakhid was unsuccessful after the T&T captain missed a penalty that was awarded to T&T in the first half. Canada however made no mistake when Mark Watson scored the winner to lead his team to the finals and as a result T&T was sent home but not in shame as the Warriors created history in their first ever Gold Cup semi-final appearance.
