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.

In the modern football world, most match reports are adorned by a plethora of stats that may (or may not) tell us something extra about the relative performance of each team – eg BBC reports show shots, shots on target, possession and fouls.
We Couldn't Wish for an Easier Run of Games by BossMan
With the team currently out of form I reckon the upcoming set of fixtures up to the end of January couldn't look much better for us (based merely on the league table as of this morning).
Are Our Goalkeepers Both the Same? by BlueRaider
Many fans seem to think there is little to choose between our goalkeepers, I disagree.
Mick Not the Man for Town (Part Two) by BossMan
Last August I wrote a blog suggesting that Mick was the wrong man for the job, despite the fact that he had just signed a new three-year deal.
What Do We Expect of Our Club? by DurhamTownFan
A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog on the subject of Town’s playing style under Mick McCarthy. Having been humbled at Old Trafford, I wanted to see how everyone felt about what I perceived to be a rather attritional and outdated brand of football seen here and in pretty much every other Ipswich game since McCarthy arrived.
