National Men’s Senior team head coach Otto Pfister has invited US-based duo Devorn Jorsling and Kevin Molino to join the training sessions next week with a group of T&T-based players ahead of the upcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Bermuda there on October 7 and against Barbados at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on October 11.
Both Molino and Jorsling are currently back home after helping Orlando City to the 2011 USL Pro title earlier this month
And Jan Michael Williams is also in the training squad having returned from a stint in Belgium while Philadelphia Union midfielder Keon Daniel is also home and has been invited.
The team will train on Monday and Tuesday morning at the Hasely Crawford Stadium and the final squad will assemble in Fort Lauderdale on October 2 for a training camp before departing for Bermuda.
DirecTV North East Stars striker Stern John is also among the players who will train from Monday. Joe Public goalkeeper Marvin Phillip is scheduled to return from a trial with Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday while Carlyle Mitchell departs for Vancouver next week. Striker Darryl Roberts is away on trial in South Africa and has suffered an elbow injury which means he is unlikely to feature in the matches next month.
“We have invited a few new faces who the head coach has seen in the opening set of matches in the Pro League and of course we have a couple of the guys back from their clubs in the United States. We have said before that the opportunity will be given to these players and coach Pfister is in the process of doing that now,” assistant coach Anton Corneal told TTFF Media.
