Heartbroken by football failure

THE EDITOR: The road to Russia 2018 is dusted and done with for our senior national football team. We have had a very dismal campaign dating back to last November.

In eight games, we suffered seven losses with one victory, a slim 1-0 win over Panama in Port of Spain back in March. We presently sit at the bottom of the six-team table with three points. We still have two games remaining — Mexico away on October 6 and the US on October 10 at home.

Our dream of reaching our second World Cup is officially over. As a die-hard fan, I’m left very disappointed with our overall performance, particularly from our overseas-based professionals. They are making too many simple errors. I am heartbroken.

To the coach and technical staff, we have to start to build from now and to look to the future. The key to success is commitment, dedication and hard work. In four years’ time let’s hope the road to Qatar is a much smoother and less bumpy one.
