T&T footballers into 2023 Gold Cup prelims


    T&T’s men’s footballers have missed out on promotion in the CONCACAF Nations League after a 1-1 draw with Nicaragua.

    The two teams clashed at the Dwight Yorke Stadium with the visitors taking the lead in the 27th minute through a header from Ariagner Smith.

    T&T drew level in the 41st minute when captain Joevin Jones converted a spot-kick after Ryan Telfer was brought down in the area.

    A goal for T&T was ruled out in the final minute of the match.

    The 1-1 draw means T&T finish 2nd in Group C of League B and also misses out on direct qualification to the Gold Cup later this year.

    They will instead take part in the Gold Cup Prelims in a bid to make the main tournament.
