“Yes I will use the players who were in the squad for this (England) match. I think with a game like this you can take out the positives and move on. Yes it was disappointing to lose in front the wonderful fans but we played a very strong team and when you do that you must learn from it and I think we have done that tonight,” Maturana told TTFF Media.
“If you play Cayman Islands ten times then you can win ten times but I would prefer to play a team like England once and get a good result. I think we would like to have ten more games like this one (referring to England match). I think it is very important for or preparations.
“I think it was difficult to lose Kenwyne so early but we have to live with that and the game continued after. It was pleasing to see what some of the players did today but we have the other games to prepare for and the World Cup qualifiers are the important ones right now.”
On the display of Dwight Yorke, Maturana said: “I think he did well and a retirement is a personal decision. I think if that was his last game then he would have had a very good retirement from international football.” (Photo:T&T vs England/AFP)
