It’s been a long wait for Trinidad and Tobago, but finally they have an opportunity to cast aside some demons. T&T, who are known affectionately as the Soca Princesses, dominated their two-match intercontinental play-off against Ecuador four years ago, but somehow slipped up after conceding a decisive last-minute goal to miss qualification for their first-ever FIFA Women’s World Cup™.
The Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Sport and Youth Affairs, along with senior officials of the Ministry, met today with Mr. David John-Williams, President of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and other members of the TTFA at the Ministry’s Head Office, St. Clair Avenue, Port of Spain.
It seems like a case of déjà vu for the senior national women footballers. Four years ago, a few days before the start of the CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers for the 2015 FIFA World Cup in Canada, out of frustration the then coach Randy Waldrum pleaded with the TTFA to show his players respect. He tweeted “I need HELP! T&T sent a team here last night with $500 total. No equipment such as balls, no transportation from the airport to the hotel, nothing.” Waldrum's response/reaction or 'emotional disturbance' was brought about by administrative blunders by the TTFA. The Haitian team provided temporary relief by donating US$ 1300.00 to the national team to meet basic needs such as food and transportation.
