Edwards and Trinidad and Tobago Draw
Tuesday, 9th Jul 2013 08:57
Blues skipper Carlos Edwards played the full 90 minutes as Trinidad and Tobago began their CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign by drawing 2-2 with El Salvador in New Jersey overnight. The 34-year-old was winning his 85th cap but was making his debut in the competition.
The Town midfielder was involved in the Soca Warriors’ first goal, his 10th minute cross deflecting to Keon Daniel, who beat the keeper from the edge of the box.
Rodolfo Zalaya subsequently scored twice to put El Salvador in the lead before Kenwyne Jones equalised with 18 minutes remaining.
Trinidad and Tobago face Haiti in their second game in Miami on Friday and then complete their group matches when they come up against Honduras in Houston next Monday. Honduras beat Haiti 2-0 in last night's other group game.
Edwards will join up with the Town squad once his national side is eliminated from the tournament.

Luke Chambers Will Be a Town Legend by Pickersblue22

Is the Game Now Too Rich for Marcus Evans? by itfcjoe
As Ipswich look to be leaving the January transfer window with a weaker squad than the one they entered it with, it leads me to question what is Marcus Evans’s plan for the football club.
Time for a Break? by Bluetaff
As strong winds and torrential rain batter the UK, we enjoy again another wet and dreary winter. Long gone are the visions of a white and frosty Christmas so often played out in annual offerings from Hollywood.
The 'Exciting and Unpredictable' Championship! by TimS
Well done to Jolly Journo! I sympathised with much of what you wrote this week, and the some of the vitriol that came in response was embarrassing for this great club.
