    Trinidad announces camp plans

    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago - The Trinidad & Tobago national team will resume training on or near May 23 in advance of two friendly internationals in Europe next month, the Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation announced Thursday.

    Both games are being used to help the Soca Warriors prepare for their first appearance in the CONCACAF Gold Cup since 2007. The squad is scheduled to face Romania and Estonia on June 4 and 7, respectively.

    Earning a recall is St Ann's Rangers goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams, who skippered the team to a second-place finish at the 2012 Caribbean Cup. Vietnam-based midfielder Hughtun Hector and Thailand-based defender Seon Power are also on the initial 20-man roster.

    Other familiar faces in the selection include midfielders Kevin Molino and Christopher Birchall, 29, who played in all three of Trinidad's matches at the 2006 World Cup finals in Germany.

    Stoke City forward Kenwyne Jones has been excused, while the status of Ipswich Town captain Carlos Edwards is uncertain due to a groin injury.

    "These two games are massive for us at this point as we prepare for the Gold Cup," T&T head coach Hutson Charles said. "This will give us a very good idea in terms of what we are looking for as a final squad for the Gold Cup."

    In the Gold Cup, Trinidad & Tobago is scheduled to face El Salvador (July 8), Haiti (July 12) and Honduras (July 15) in Group B play.
