Bolstered by a handful of foreign-based players - including Cordell Cato of Seattle, Kevan George of Columbus and U.S. collegian Sean De Silva, the Soca Warriors will arrive in Los Angeles with at least some wind in their sails. After losses to their Canadian counterparts and U.S. second-division side Ft. Lauderdale Strikers, Trinidad finished its Florida-based pre-tournament training with a 6-1 win over local amateur side Clarema United. Trinidad claimed the second of two Caribbean berths in the CONCACAF U-23 finals with a 9-1 win over Suriname - two days after a 5-2 loss to St. Kitts.
