Norway-based stand-out Kennya ‘Ya Ya’ Cordner returns to international action for the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s National Senior Team on Thursday 21 October 2021, when the Women Soca Warriors face Panama in a friendly outing from 3.30pm at the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva.
The teams will clash again at the same venue on Monday 25 October. Fans are not permitted for either match while limited media (but no photographers) will be allowed to cover the contest.
Cordner, one of the country’s most gifted attacking players, last represented the Women Soca Warriors at the 2018 Concacaf Championships in a 4-1 loss to Mexico on 7 October. She then controversially refused to play against the United States on 10 October, after a fall-out with then head coach Shawn Cooper.
At present, Cordner is one of seven players listed with overseas clubs on interim head coach Kenwyne Jones’ roster alongside Liana Hinds (IBV—Iceland), Anya de Courcy (Roa W—Norway), Maylee Attin-Johnson (Atlanta Panthers—USA), Victoria Swift (Club Leon—Mexico), and Raenah Campbell (Avantes Chalkida WFC—Greece).

Kimika Forbes (Unattached), Tenesha Palmer (Unattached), Malaika Dedier (St Augustine FC), Collette Morgan (UTT FC), Rhea Belgrave (Police FC), Naomie Guerra (Unattached), Liana Hinds (IBV—Iceland), Anya de Courcy (Roa W—Norway), Karyn Forbes (Unattached), Maylee Attin-Johnson (Atlanta Panthers—USA), Lauryn Hutchinson (Unattached), Maya Matouk (Police FC), Aaliyah Prince (St Augustine FC), Dennecia Prince (Unattached), Laurelle Theodore (St Augustine FC), Victoria Swift (Club Leon—Mexico), Raenah Campbell (Avantes Chalkida WFC—Greece), Kennya Cordner (Il Sandviken—Norway), Chelcy Ralph (Unattached), Adrianna Arjoon (Unattached), Janelle McGee (Sacramento FC—USA), Jonelle Cato (Trincity Nationals), Meyah Romeo (Unattached).
