Trinidad and Tobago patriots in Peru were not about to pass up a chance to wave their flags as the “Soca Warriors” came to Lima for a friendly international fixture against Peru.
The Trinidad and Tobago national football team finished second in the 2012 Caribbean Cup and will participate in the July 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. But could the Warriors reverse a 2-0 loss to Peru in Couva this February?
Predictably, Peru struck first.
The Warriors did have their moments in the second half.
Trinidad and Tobago’s supporters never gave up.
The Warriors show their appreciation after the final whistle.
Meet Mr Jones.
