    Default Trinidad sends united states out of world cup...

    In Russia2018 the CONCACAF region will be represented exclusively by central america, both north america (USA) and the Caribbean (TRinidad) is out have both finished 5th and 6th respectively in the region.

    In the match, held in Trinidad, the Socawarriors went ahead 2-0 in the first half playing a lackluster unchanged US team. the USA scored early in the second half, but could not make a breakthrough despite a few chances, Trinidad and its fans felt vindicated after being eliminated from the world cup by the US back in 1989, (i was at the match-held at hasley crowford stadium).

    the 3 automatic qualifiers will be
    MEXICO, with 21 pts
    COSTA RICA with 16 pts
    PANAMA with 13 points
    , while Honduras (13 pts) will play Australia in a home and away playoff for the place in russia.

    the usa with 12 points needed help from either panama or honduras to slip into 4th place but both teams won their matches and secured their place in Russia.

    Do they sing songs about the England's national football team?

    inTrinidad and Tobago, the SOCAWARRIORS, formally called the Strike Squad, they have a long tradition of singing Calypso and Soca songs for our National football team. here are a few (all of which are dance worthy and make for revelry at a match):

    from 1989; Superblue ; Road to Italy

    also 1989; David Rudder: Trinidad Boys, Tobago Boys

    1989; Soundrev; licks like fire licks like peas, my personal favourite!

    1989; Lancelot layne, strike squad

    Note: on nov19, 1989, the US eliminated T&T from the 1990 world cup by winning the game, we needed a draw to advance and couldn't manage that, so this defeat of the USA eliminating them in turn from russia2018, is such sweet revenge.

    2006, Maximus Dan; Socawarriors Anthem very very popular at parties! aznd here's a terrific Steelband version from 2007

    not sure of date; Quiet Prince (QP); we want ah goal

    2006; erphan alves & gotti, we are warriors

    2006; chris garcia; wunderbar terrific party song

    2016; creole superstar ; onthehex/socawarriors WCQ .
    THIS is an elctronica tribute, moe than
    a song

    A QUICK NOTE ABOUT CALYPSO AND SOCA AND CHUTNEY
    these forms of music was invented in Trinidad
    CALYPSO was used for social and political commentary as well as satire back when england still had a governor in Trinidad, and has continued to be popular today.
    SOCA is the more popular fast paced high intensity Party music. kinda like the difference between merenge and salsa.
    CHUTNEY music is the Indian form of sexy music also invented in Trinidad and nowadays there is a lot of mixing soca and chutney to create soca/chutney music.
    all of these can be found on YOUTUBE an elsewhere online.
