The CONCACAF Gold Cup won't see the Soca Warriors who made history in the 2006 World Cup but that does not mean that the crowds won't see a good bacchanal or two when T&T meet USA.
The big guns have decided to sit it out because the T&T football federation has decided not to pay their World Cup bonuses. The only holdover from the 2006 squad that captured the hearts of thousands in Germany appears to be Densill Theobald, the present Soca Warrior captain.
The Soca Warriors were a huge part of Sunderland's march back to Premiership promotion as Dwight Yorke, Stern John, and Carlos Edwards were key contributors to Roy Keane's team. Between them they scored 14 goals and Edwards goal against Burnley which won them the game, 3-2 led them back into the Premiership.
