    Trinidad to tackle areas of improvement, Haiti

    MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Trinidad & Tobago head coach Stephen Hart said on Thursday that he fully recognizes the areas that the Soca Warriors need to address, as they prepare to face Caribbean rival Haiti in a CONCACAF Gold Cup, Group A encounter at Sun Life Stadium on Friday.

    The Soca Warriors are coming off an exciting 2-2 draw with El Salvador in Harrison, New Jersey, on Monday.  Haiti dropped a 2-0 decision to Honduras the same evening,

    “I cannot stress the importance of the game,” Hart said. “It’s game two and we all know what is at stake.

    “I think at times we possessed the ball well in some spurts, but we were not as consistent as I know we can be. We got ourselves into some good attacking positions as the game went on, so that for me was very positive. 

    Leo Beenhakker, Trinidad’s director of football, also remained cautiously optimistic about the group and Trinidad’s chances of advancement.

    “I still don’t have an overview of the tournament so far, but as for the teams in my group, El Salvador is a good team,” he said. “The bad luck for us was that we played a very average first half and the second was much better. In the end we could be satisfied with the draw because we didn’t play that well in the first half.

    “Haiti is a very difficult team to beat because they are very athletic very quick and very strong, so it will not be easy tomorrow night and we will give our best effort against Honduras.”

    The Trinidadians are looking to snap a 10-game Gold Cup winless streak.  Their last victory in the competition came against Costa Rica, 2-1, in the 2000 quarterfinals.
