Trinidad head coach Otto Pfister named Daniel as part of a preliminary group of sixteen players that will train in the country Monday and Tuesday of next week. The remaining part of the national team squad that will play in Trinidad's next two qualifiers will join the team on October 2 for a full team training session.
After that, Daniel and the rest of the team are set to head to Bermuda for the second game against their fellow island nation. That game, the third of Trinidad's 2014 World Cup qualifying matches, will take place on October 7. A game against Barbados will kickoff on October 11. Daniel scored his ninth career international goal in Barbados, when the two sides first played each other on September 6.
Daniel has not been with the Union, or inside of the United States of America, since leaving for international duty at the end of August due to visa problems. A source informed the Brotherly Game that Daniel may not return to the team during the 2011 MLS season due to those problems.
