“There is a huge amount of belief in the camp.” That has been the echoing sentiment in the Trinidad and Tobago corner following last Tuesday’s World Cup qualifying effort in San Jose, Costa Rica.
And now, days after, with the T&T team back home following some 21 days on the road going back to the start of a preparation camp in Boulder, Colorado, there is a strong sense of belief that T&T is still very much in the race for a qualifying spot in Russia.
Former Costa Rican based defender Aubrey David, who started in last Tuesday’s encounter against the Costa Ricans, said he had received positive feedback as well from former Saprissa teammate Francisco Calvo, who scored Los Ticos’ first minute item.
“We know how difficult it was not being able to come away with at least a point. Looking back at the performance, I think we give it a really good shot and there was a very positive feeling after the game, even with the loss,” David told TTFA Media.
