Canada set for August friendly against Trinidad and Tobago

Canada set for August friendly against Trinidad and Tobago
Men's National Team 19 July 2012

Canada will take on CONCACAF rivals Trinidad and Tobago in a Men’s International Friendly on 15 August at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, FL. The team will be in its final preparations for a crucial pair of FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers against Panama in September.

“This has always been a difficult FIFA date due to the time constraints and opening of various club seasons. We felt it important to play as it gives us the opportunity to get a game together on the only available date before September,” said Stephen Hart, Head Coach of Canada’s Men’s National Team.

Canada has not faced Trinidad and Tobago since the two nations squared off a remarkable five times in 2000. The Canadians posted a record of two wins, two losses and one draw against the Caribbean nation during that year.

Canada’s memorable 1:0 win over Trinidad and Tobago in the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-final on 24 February, 2000 crowned the Canadians as champions of the region and earned the team a place at the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Canada will resume play in CONCACAF Round 3 of FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers with an important home fixture against Panama on Friday 7 September at BMO Field in Toronto.

Tickets to the match are available via or by calling 1.855.570.7500. Discounted tickets for groups of 10+ are also available through the Canadian Soccer Association ([email protected]).

After an undefeated three-game series in June, Canada sits in second place in its FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers group (Group C), only two points behind Panama in first place. The Canadians must finish in the top two places in their group to qualify as one of six teams in ‘the hex’ – CONCACAF’s final round of FIFA World Cup™ Qualifiers.

Canada beat T&T 2-0 behind Ricketts, Johnson

LAUDERHILL, Fla. – It was a one-sided game in every respect except on the scoreboard as Canada dominated their friendly match against Trinidad and Tobago on Wednesday, coming away with a 2-0 win.

Tosaint Ricketts, who is still without a club team at the moment, caused troubles all night and fittingly scored the winner in the 57th minute. Real Salt Lake's Will Johnson then scored a penalty with just a few minutes left as Canada tallied twice in a game for the first time since they beat St. Kitts and Nevis 4-0 at BMO Field in November of last year
