Trinidad and Tobago’s Under 20 Women’s Team got their Caribbean Football Union World Qualifying campaign off to a winning start with a 2-0 victory over hosts St Vincent/Grenadines at Victoria Park on Sunday.

T&T got both their goals from Tasianne Leander in the 19th and 60th minutes to secure the three points.

Head Coach Jason Spence said the key to his team’s victory was sticking to their game plan.

“It’s a good way for us to start the campaign. Winning your first game against the host country is always the ideal way to get things going. We stuck to the game plan all along,” Spence told TTFA Media.

“We scored in the first twenty minutes of each half and that was the plan.”

T&T will face Dominican Republic in their second outing on Tuesday.

“Again we will play based on rehearsal and stick to the game plan which is broken down into 20 minute periods of responsibility.  We will be going all out to get another victory and seal our place in the next round,” Spence added.

The 2016 FIFA Under 20 Women's World Cup will be staged in Papua New Guinea. The CONCACAF Final round, from which the top three teams will qualify for the World Cup, will take place in Honduras from December 3rd-13th.

T&T starting team: Rebecca Almandoz, Chevonne John, Shaunalee Govia, Renee Mike, Sawsha Woznuk Naomie Guerra, Kelsey Henry, Ranae Ward, Chelcy Ralph, Tsaianne Leander, Raenah Campbell.

Substitutes: Nicolette Craig, Maya Matouk, Celeste Thomas, Zoe Swift, Chelsea Frederick, Eden Charles, Corel Carmichael, Amaya Ellis.
