Saudi Arabia 2 vs T&T 1

In a continued rebuilding effort Trinidad and Tobago played World Cup Qualifiers Saudi Arabia in Cannes, France. The Saudi's were using the same squad that tied Jamaica 0-0 earlier in the week.

The Saudi's went ahead after just 16 minutes on a strike by Sami Al-Jaber. However the never say die attitude by the rebuilding T&T team prevailed. They tied the score on a fine strike by Knight just three minutes later. Both sides constructed good build ups.

In the second half, T&T put the Saudi defense under constant pressure. However, the T&T forwards were caught up in the Saudia Arabia's offside traps.

They game winning goal was scored in the 79th minute by Saeed Al-Owairan after a fine through pass.
