Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Beach Soccer Team head coach Ramiro Amarelle selected his final 12-man squad today for the 2021 Concacaf Beach Soccer Championship, which kicks off on 17 May in Alajuela, Costa Rica.
Twelve participating nations are split into three groups with the two teams advancing to the quarterfinal round along with the best two runners-up. The two finalists earn automatic spots at the Russia 2021 Fifa Beach Soccer World Cup.
Trinidad and Tobago, who were quarterfinalists at the last three consecutive tournaments, are in Group C alongside hosts Costa Rica, the United States, and the Turks and Caicos Islands. Mexico won the 2019 Concacaf competition while USA finished second.
Trinidad and Tobago have just completed a 15-day camp in Paraguay where they played four practice games against the host team and lost, in order, 7-2, 5-2, 7-4, and 3-2 respectively.
The players selected by Amarelle, a former Spain international beach soccer player, to compete in Costa Rica next week are:
Goalkeepers: Jabari Gray, Zane Coker;
Defenders: Shallun Bobb, Omri Baird, Ryan Augustine (captain), Jesse Bailey;
Midfielder: Joash Baird;
Pivots: Lemuel Lyons, Kevon Woodley;
Forwards: Akinola Gregory, Hakeem King, David McDougall.
