USMNT had final World Cup qualifier venue change in Trinidad, and now it's flooded
This isn't an ideal field or stadium by any means
The U.S. men's national team is getting ready for itson Tuesday night at Trinidad and Tobago, and on Monday the teamed trained on the field that will be used for the match. At Ato Boldon Stadium, a 10,000-seater, the team arrived to quite a surprise. The area around the field was flooded. Take a look:
This match was supposed to be at the national stadium, Hasley Crawford Stadium, but it was moved so the local federation could reduce some costs in a match that means little to them. So, here is this new venue, which experienced some heavy rain, and it resulted in others giving USA players piggyback rides onto the field.
Don't see that every day. A field with a moat around it is something new, but at least the field looks OK for the game.
