PORT OF SPAIN, June 22 (Reuters) - British-born Trinidad and
Tobago coach Ian Porterfield has no intentions of resigning as
coach despite the team's dismal record in the CONCACAF World Cup
Trinidad and Tobago lost the fourth of their five matches on
Wednesday, going down 2-0 to the United States to follow up
defeat by Honduras, Costa Rica and Jamaica.
Their only point came from a draw with Mexico and they have
no chance of qualifying for next year's World Cup finals in
Japan and South Korea.
But Porterfield, who guided the Soca Warriors to the Copa
Caribe title in May, said he had no intentions of giving
up the job.
'No, I have no thoughts of (doing) that. I don't know what
is going to happen and I have been hearing all kinds of stories
but no one has said anything to me,' Porterfield said.
'I just think that we've given away a lot of silly goals and
when you give away silly goals, you're certainly not going to
Porterfield said that Trinidad and Tobago had lost to a more
organised, experienced and disciplined United States team.
'I think our lads, up until this phase of the tournament did
well and the facts prove that.
'But with America, Jamaica, Costa
Rica Honduras and Mexico at this stage, it's been much harder,'
