Time for new football talent

THE EDITOR: The quest to be a part of the 2018 World Cup has come to an end with our latest defeat against Panama. While this is very disappointing, that is the way it is sometimes.

So what’s next? If we follow the usual process TT may be looking for a new coach or there will be a shake-up of the management team.

As far as I am concerned, however, the 11 players on the field for those 90 minutes are responsible for winning or losing.

I have been saying it over and over: our players are not up to World Cup standard. We are being outplayed. It is not the management.

The way forward is returning to the drawing board and grooming players from young. Let us stop bringing back players who cannot last 90 minutes. We must do better than that.

I still fully support our footballers but we need to find new talent.
