    PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago -- Trinidad & Tobago head coach Stephen Hart named a 22-man roster on Monday for an October 15 international friendly against visiting New Zealand at Hasely Crawford Stadium.  It will be the first-ever meeting between the sides.

    Captained by Stoke City forward Kenwyne Jones, the squad includes two newcomers in San Jose Earthquakes midfielder Cordell Cato and Central FC forward Rundell Winchester.

     

    “The objective of the squad is to continue with experimentation but of course you always have to have a balanced squad,” Hart told TTFA Media.  “Playing at home is an exciting prospect for all the players. A number of them have recounted to me when last they played at home so you can feel that sense of excitement.”

     

    The Soca Warriors, who progressed to the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinals, have not played in Port of Spain since a 3-2 loss to Finland on January 22, 2012.
