Saturday, 10 June 2006

1930: iceman200
To be fair to T&T, they held their nerve through the entire second half under imense pressure by the Swedes.

I hear a lot of talk that Sweden are not the best, but given their higher ranking, attacking play through the second half, advantage of being one man up.... I would say T&T did a brilliant job securing a draw.

Over and above this has been the most exciting match of the World Cup so far.

1920: shearFox
I would put this down as one of the great shock results ever at the World Cup finals - not just because it was T&T but because it was a 10-man T&T for a whole half!

1916: Cold War Kid
Fantastic game and a great advertisement for the 0-0 score, and the spirit of the underdog.

1910: OZZY_LFC
Bravo T&T!! Epic display!

Sweden are not that great but to be fair they were quite unlucky to miss some of their chances.

T&T to beat Paraguay and go through along with England?

1900: kunited_12
Great match, brilliant defending by T&T - so far the big guns haven't had it all their own way, could this be a cup of shocks? Roll on Ivory Coast.

1853: The Genius Of Roo
What an absolutely heroic 10-man performance, it was unbelievable. Well done Trinidad & Tobago.

1849: TH14THEMAN
Hislop, Edwards and Sancho have played blinders. This is a big let off for England

1845: chif123 This game is not for the faint hearted - on another day Sweden would/should have scored at least four, but Hislop is on FIRE!

1840: nibbermcgill
The T&T performance suggests England could face a much tougher second game than I expected before today. Excellent defending and they look cool and unfazed by the warmth that practically melted England earlier. Thursday's forecast is equally hot if not hotter.

1831: SoZeKeySer
Coach Leo Beenhakker is a genius. When T&T went down to 10 men, he brought on a forward. Sweden look confused and seem to be getting frustrated.

1830: GunsGalore
Sweden will score soon. I don't think T&T will be able to hold out a lot longer. This game reminds me of the Barca-Arsenal CL Final.

1823: Cold War Kid
Can T&T really hold out with 10 men? I reckon they just might.

1819: SoZeKeySer
Off the post for T&T. Save by Hislop. This has been a great game.

Go T&T

1815: biskot
Avery John was on yellow already so his red card was well deserved. That was a foolish rush of adrenaline.

1755: bluevaio
T&T look tired - I doubt they can sustain the Swede offensive for another 50 minutes.

1748: rmerrill
Match opening up and the Soca Warriors look fresh at the 45 min mark. Will we see another Ecuador/Poland where the northern European side dominates early but concedes as things start to get loose?

1745: Nacho_Maloney
Sweden should be ahead by now and this cannot possibly stay 0-0, Come on Sweden.

1737: T_Tsurprise
Look for a surprise result in this game. Chances are when one side misses so much opportunity the other side seem to score. T&T will get at least a tie out of this.

1735: TH14THEMAN
Cracking game. Sweden look very good- organized, strong in the tackle and generally good technically. T&T fighting well. This is a much better game.

1720: The Pain
Sweden are showing that it is possible to play good, fluid football in hot conditions.

1710: Keyser Soze
Sweden are essentially the same side that destroyed Bulgaria 5-0 in Euro 2004 and I fully expect a similar scoreline today against Trinidad and also when England face them.

All credit to Trinidad, but they are comprised of lots of lower-level players, so I can't see any points for them in this World Cup.

Mind you, I thought Poland would sweep Ecuador aside so what do I know?

1657: bluevaio
The national anthem has started and the T&T squad is sweating...probably because of the heat.

1630: Evil Disco Guy
I can't really see Sweden losing this but I wouldn't mind being surprised. A lot of people dismissed Ecuador and they beat Poland quite easily in the end.

1620: SiddoNotts
It won't be an easy game for the Swedes, but they'll edge it. They have more experience and pedigree than their opponents.
