    Extra security has been added to the T&T Football Team for the rest of their CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States.

    This decision follows death threats made to members of the team following the nil-nil draw with defending champions Mexico in Texas, last Saturday night.

    Police Commissioner Gary Griffith says a Special Branch representative based in Miami will now be the security liaison.

    The officer will communicate with the FBI, the Frisco Police Department in Texas, Hotel Security, and Match Security Officials, provide security checks to the team bus, coordinate security at the hotel, training fields and match venues.

    The officer will also ensure the T&T players are secure from access to spectators from opposing teams.

    Tonight at 7:30, the national team will play El Salvador at the Toyota Stadium in Texas and then on Sunday they complete the Group Stage against Guatemala.
