As World Cup Qualifying begins to heat up, the pressure is on Trinidad and Tobago as they hope to repeat their stunning 2006 performance in Germany. In the first match of the third round, Trinidad routed Cuba 3-1 in an away victory that has, at least for now, catapulted the Soca Warriors to the top of Group 1, where they have a two goal lead over the number two team, the United States. MLF Athletes Osei Telesford, who had a spectular defensive performance, and Darryl Roberts, who kept the pressure on Cuba after Trinidad got an early lead, were able to help Trinidad and Tobago secure a win in the first of six third round matches. As Trinidad prepares to face the reeling Guatemala, who just suffered their first loss to the United States in over 20 years, both Darryl and Osei hope that they will continue to be a part of the stellar Trinidad lineup, as the small island nation fights for a trip to South Africa in 2010.
