Former Trinidad and Tobago winger Leonson Lewis rated Wednesday (7th-Aug-2002) night’s First Citizen’s Cup final between winners Defence Force and Vibe CT 105 W Connection as a well played one, praising the two teams for an action-packed encounter.
The former Portuguese-based star, now signed with Connection was forced to look on from the stands due to a slight injury and admitted that he would have liked to play in what would have been his first final since returning home.
Lewis said the Army deserved the victory on the evening.
“It was a good game. I think the Army played the better game and they deserved to win. Connection didn’t put away their chances and easy defensive mistakes gave away the goals. That’s football. If you don’t score then you lose,” said Lewis.
He mentioned that he was home to spend time with his daughter and play the game, as well look into involving himself in coaching.
“I really came back here to be with my daughter and as I’m here in Trinidad, I’ll play football because that’s want I want to be involved in for the rest of my life. I’ll play and then probably coach. My career continues and is not really ending. I already did my coaching courses,” added Lewis, who graduated from coaching courses in Portugal.
