PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad & Tobago – Trinidad & Tobago will begin final-round play in CONCACAF qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with a 23-man roster, the Trinidad & Tobago Football Association announced Friday.
The Trinidadians will host Costa Rica on November 11, before visiting Honduras four days later.
Midfielder Joevin Jones and forward Kenwyne Jones, who share the team’s WCQ scoring lead with three goals each, highlight a side that is attempting to reach the World Cup for the first time in 2006.
Also earning a call-up is midfielder John Bostock. The 24-year-old – born in England -- has netted five times in 13 games this season for Lens in the French second division, but has yet to make his T&T debut.
Last month, T&T missed out on direct qualification to the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup after finishing as runner-up to Group 4 winner Martinique in the third round of the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup.
