Trinidad And Tobago Faces Barbados As Keon Daniel Looks To Regain Form

CONCACAF nations play their fourth round games of the 2014 World Cup Qualifying season tonight, with one of the most important of those games being between Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados. The two island nations are competing for second place in CONCACAF Group B, as first place Guyana has all but wrapped up first place.

Most interesting to Philadelphia Union fans is the status of the team's left midfielder Keon Daniel, a Tobagon international. Daniel started his second straight game for Trinidad, but he failed to impress in his third appearance of the second round of qualifying. Shoddy passing between Daniel and a teammate led to an eventual goal by Bermuda in Trinidad's 2-1 loss. In September, Daniel made some waves in Tobago after playing well in an appearance against Bermuda and scoring a goal against Barbados.

Speculation is that the 25-year-old has lost his spot in the starting line up, with his poor performance (or rather, sub-par performance) against Bermuda the second time around. After spending all of the 2011 MLS season playing at left midfield, Daniel was shifted into the left of the center of the midfield, as head coach Otto Fister decided to use new tactics in a 4-3-3 formation.

Trinidad's game against Barbados kicks off at 5 pm.
