Shahdon Winchester knows he has
goals in him. From schoolboy days

get here, to be on the national team,
especially for a World Cup qualifier,"
"The goal is against Grenada felt
good but I want to achieve more and
hopefully I can keep seeing results."
His W Connection teammate,
Jomal Williams, is also looking to
make his name for T&T.
"It s encouraging for all three of
us, myself, Hector and Shahdon to
be in the national team at the same
time. We work hard together and we
have similar goals we want to achieve
which is playing at the highest level
and winning trophies. Now the
chance to do well with the national
team is finally here," he said.

Levi Garcia has always had big
dreams. He once dreamt about play-
ing for this country, he dreamt about
playing alongside Kenwyne Jones
and he dreamt of Santa Flora, his
hometown in South, Trinidad.
To think that this 17-year-old once
played on several of the community
and school grounds in the country,
some of those grounds which have
only been boosted with flood lights
in the past five years or so, but strug-
gles to boast of a proper pitch, unkept
change rooms, no space for proper
recovery or rehab, a shop down the
road that may sell a soft drink, bis-
cuits, beers or a Gatorade if you re
He is a past player with Shiva Boys
Hindu College and underwent some
training to keep sharp with the Antho-
ny Sherwood Football Academy in
Gulf View prior to heading to Holland
before his making his debut there.
This same teenager is competing
against some of the biggest names in
Dutch football in a country which
produced the likes of Ruud Gullit,
Marco Van Basten, Frank Rijkaard,
Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Arjen Robben
and Leo Beenhakker. In fact, Van Bas-
ten, a legend, spotted Garcia during
his early trial period and acted almost
It goes to show, just like Garcia
says, that nothing can beat talent,
belief, desire to succeed and strong
ambition. "I can t believe it some-
times, you know," Garcia said after
his first training session with the sen-
ior team last week at the Ato Boldon
"It s an honour and a dream come
true to play with Kenwyne and the
national team. Once you believe, you
can achieve," he said.
He hopes to make his international
debut today against St
Vincent/Grenadines at Arnos Vale.
But even if he doesn t, he s prepared
to keep going until it happens. In the
meantime, he hopes his story can
inspire others on a similar journey.
Last year he was part of a talented
Under-20 team at the CONCACAF
Final round of World Cup qualifying.
And Neveal Hackshaw kept improving
his work rate. Coach Stephen Hart
noticed and gave him his first call up
and international debut against Pana-
ma at age 19 last year.
Hackshaw, a midfielder formerly
of North East Stars and Arima North
Secondary, has maintained a place
in the senior squad and secured his
first overseas contract with American
second tier club Charleston Battery
last week along with countryman
Raised in La Horquetta, Hackshaw
sees football as a way to a better life
for him and his family.
"Football, at my young age, has
given me joy and everything I have
at this point in my life. I was delighted
when I made my debut for T&T and
now that I have signed with
Charleston I am seeing some fruits
of my hard work," Hackshaw said.
"The club is very nice. The people
treated me so good from day one.
They took care of me and Ataullah
and it made us very comfortable and
now we are happy to be with them.
"Ataullah and I live in the same
place and we are focused now on
making a good impression and helping
the club achieve some level of success.
This is an exciting period for us," said
Hackshaw who is in the T&T squad
for today s World Cup qualifier away
to St Vincent and the Grenadines.
T&T call ups frustrates
Nathan Jones, the manager for Eng-
lish League two club Luton Town,
says he is frustrated that his club will
miss out on the opportunity to play
on the Good Friday holiday today as
their fixture has been called off due
to the international call ups of Andre
Boucaud and Justin Hoyte.
T&T head coach Stephen Hart
called both players to the team for
today s World Cup qualifier. And
Congo international Clevid Dikamona
was also called by his country
"We want to play the games now,
we d love a home game on Good Fri-
day, a big crowd and keep that
momentum going,"said Jones. As it
is, we ve got a little bit of a wait, then
we go to Barnet and then we ve got
three home games and we have to
make sure that we do well in those.
It s more frustrating if I m honest, I
just hope the international call-ups
for Dagenham get to play."
Some UK managers have always
had trouble with having to let their
players leave for international duty
for countries outside of Europe.
Boucaud meantime, will not let that
"I know the clubs sometimes don t
like the idea of losing players but it s
a massive opportunity for us as players
to represent our national team and
play on the international stage. I ve
had managers who don t make a fuss
but sometimes they can see it as a
bit of a problem. But for me, I want
to play for the national team as much
as I can," he said.
