Plaza has faith in teammates.

Central FC forward Willis Plaza is not certain whether he will follow Friday’s match between Trinidad and Tobago and Haiti online on one of the available live streams. But one thing’s for sure, he will be saying some extra prayers for his teammates before kick off.

Plaza was ruled out of the contest with a dislocated shoulder while on duty with his club and is expected to be sidelined for at least another month. The former Jabloteh player was the lone scorer early in the first half the last time the two countries met in a closed-door encounter in Fort Lauderdale prior to the Concacaf Gold Cup.

“I am sad that I will not be able to play but once the coach and the doctor spoke to me I knew I would have to miss the game,” Plaza said.

“I feel this game will be harder but the boys have the qualities to pull off the win. I know they will be positive. The chance to play in the Copa America is like a once in a lifetime opportunity,” Plaza said.

SWO Note: Willis Plaza has signed with Salvadoran Primera División club, Alianza FC. Plaza has been brought in to replace Argentine striker, Jonathan Philippe. Plaza is scheduled to arrive in El Salvador on January 10th, 2016.
