Cordner returns to Women Warriors, as Jones names 23-member squad to face Panama

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).
