Trinidad and Tobago will have to be wary of Mexico forward Carlos Vela, according to the national team’s assistant manager Sol Campbell.


The former Arsenal and Tottenham defender is widely expected to use his experience in the game in order to get Trinidad and Tobago towards a third consecutive win.

The national team comes on the back of two consecutive wins over Barbados and Panama in March. They have not conceded a goal in both these matches. As a result, the team comes into the game high on confidence but Campbell says that they need to be very of a much better attack in the Mexico lineup.

With players like Carlos Vela and Giovanni Dos Santos leading the attack, Mexico will be a force to reckon with. Carlos Vela may have been in and out of the national team setup during his professional career, but he has always produced a performance whenever he has been on the pitch. Mexico will be counting on this result in order to continue the excellent run of form in the last few months.

Trinidad and Tobago are bottom of the group despite the back-to-back wins. They need a strong performance against Mexico in order to revive their chances of qualification to the World Cup 2018.

"Carlos is a young guy, very skillful, he's always been quick, [with a] really good left foot. Obviously we've got to watch him tomorrow. We can't leave him alone. We've got to make sure we take care with him.He's very skillful and the football at Arsenal would've suited him.That's why Arsene Wenger bought him. He wanted him to be a top, top player. But at the time, the Mexico situation at home, he wasn't really happy about Mexico and now he's happy,” said Campbell ahead of the game.
