JONG COLOMBIA, of the Netherlands Antilles, find themselves for the second time in two nights, facing soldiers in a football match, when they take on the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment at 8.00 tonight at the National Stadium in the third game of the Caribbean section of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Football Association (CONCACAF) inter-club Champion of Champions tournament.

This will be the Antilleans' second game, while the Trinidadians are making their first appearance.

Two nights ago in their first game against Jamaica Regiment, the Antilleans' good positioning and passing proved too much for the Jamaicans as they blanked them 3-0.

Mindful of the fact that the beautiful Albany Trophy will be theirs should they top the tourney, Jong Colombia go all out tonight for their second victory and will be banking mainly on Jose Constancio and many times national representative Antonio Martino to get the necessary goals.

Martino is a speedy forward and frequently left the Jamaica Regiment defenders stranded. Given the room he could do the same tonight.

The Trinidad Regiment should take a lot of beating however. In starting their quest tonight they will be fielding a team the nucleus of which should be their eight players who have represented Trinidad in international matches.

Among these is goal-keeper Lincoln Phillips who should be kept busy between the sticks in handling the hot shots the Antillean aggregation have shown they are capable of firing in.
