Our prediction for this Gold Cup match:
As expected, USA rolled over Guyana 4-0 in the opening match of their 2019 Gold Cup campaign. The Stars and Stripes aim to get their job done in Group D as soon as possible and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Trinidad and Tobago in Sunday’s football match at FirstEnergy Stadium. Tyler Boyd scored a brace in the 4-0 win over Guyana, meaning that the opposition defenders should have him at bay.
Yet another man to keep an eye on in the home side will be Gyasi Zardes who is in front of Jozy Altidore in the pecking order. The Soca Warriors, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 2-0 loss to Panama and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Yanks’ party in Cleveland. In their last meeting at the CONCACAF Gold Cup USA defeated Trinidad 2-0.

Trinidad and Tobago national football team compete in both CONCACAF and the Caribbean Football Union.

Trinidad and Tobago made their World Cup debut in 2006, with the team facing the likes of Paraguay, England and Sweden in Group B.
The Carribean side did well to hold Sweden to a goalless draw in their opener, but due to back-to-back defeats to the likes of England and Paraguay, they eventually failed to advance to the knockout stages of the competition. The Soca Warriors recorded their best result at the 1973 CONCACAF Championship, with the team finishing the process as the runners-up.
