Trinidad and Tobago has picked it's squad for it's October 10th game versus Jamaica. This time there is no need for Dwight Yorke or Russell Latapy to fax there availability to the TTFF. The two star players were not included in a 18 man squad by national head coach Bertille St. Clair.

Included in the team is Evans Wise the striker at Bundesliga club SSV Ulm. Wise has been recalled to the national team after more than a year away from the national spotlight.

Also, included in the squad is Avery John who recently signed a contract with Irish Premiership club Bohemians FC. Together with Marvin Andrews and Ansil Elcock the trio will form the core of the T&T defense.

Speaking to the Trinidad Express national team manager under scored the importance of playing international friendlies. He stated: "A team is not just 11 players on the field, a team is a psychological unit so it is unwise to just put a team on the field willy nilly. These friendlies are used to develop everything from team spirit to cohesion so we do not agree with the belief that we should not take these games seriously."

T&T squad: Shaka Hislop (West Ham United, England), Michael McComie (Joe Public), Shurland David (San Juan Jabloteh), Derek King, Lyndon Andrews (W Connection), Ansil Elcock, Stern John (Columbus Crew), Avery John (BohemiansFC, Ireland), Anthony Rougier (Port Vale), Marvin Andrews (Raith Rovers), Stokely Mason, Angus Eve, Arnold Dwarika (Joe Public), Brent Sancho (Terverit FC, Finland), Evan Wise (SSV Ulm, Germany) Mickey Trotman (Le High Valley), Gary Glasgow (Richmond Kickers), Jerren Nixon (FC Zurich).

McComie gets trial offer.

This must be the year of the T&T goalie. First Clayton Ince gets a contract offer to play for Crewe in the English first division and now comes the news of Micheal McComie getting a trial with Chester in the English third division.

McComie the third string goalie behind Shaka Hislop and Ince is headed to Chester for a ten day trial later on this month. Should he be successful he will be the third local goalie to play in Europe this year.
