Soca Warriors

Posted by David Leslie on June 10, 2006

Shout out to Maria Cherrie and all the good people of Trinidad & Tobago for their team's shut out of Sweeden in the World Cup. First World Cup game ever, back up goal keeper pressed into action when the starter goes down in warmups, lose a forward to a 2nd yellow card to go a man down.. all very good reasons to blame a loss on.

 Yet the Soca Warriors looked to their leaders such as Dwight Yorke as he maned up to drop back to his own in and locked up the Sweeds while Shaka Hislop formed a wall between his posts for those times when Sweeden got something in goal.

So to Maria and the folks from the twin islands, a wink and a toast of some Corrona Punch…
