T&T's senior women team head coach Ross Russell says that his team has demonstrated a willingness to work hard and believe in their ability against opposition that is expected to roll over them.

T&T have attained two points at the Pan American Games so far, coming from behind to draw with Argentina and South American women football giants Colombia. They will need another strong showing against Mexico to progress to the knockout phase.

"So far the ladies have come out and shown their ability and their character. They believe in themselves and they have played for each other with a never say die attitude. That has been the key for us in the two games so far," Russell said.

"Even though Colombia were expected to get the better of us, our players never showed any fear or play in way that made them look intimidated. We'll be looking to end the group phase on a high even though it will be another tough outing. So far I'm liking what I've seen and we can only improve."
