Crew draftee Kevan George has been called into Trinidad & Tobago’s Under-23 National Team camp in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., in advance of the CONCACAF Olympic qualifying tournament, which they kick off against Mexico on March 23 at The Home Depot Center in Carson Calif. The Soca Warriors will play five tune-up matches in Florida over two weeks before the Olympic qualifying roster is announced.
“Playing for T&T would be an honour,” George told TTFF media officer Shaun Fuentes. “I have been in contact with the U-23s and I will meet up with them in Florida before the qualifiers to try earn a spot on the team.
“Every day is very competitive in training and you have to bring your best game to show the coaches what you are capable of and earn the respect of your teammates,” he said of his stint in the MLS. George is hoping to put in meaningful contributions to T&T’s Olympic campaign.
