Arsenal @ The World Cup part 3…

Match 4

Sweden (0) Vs Trinidad & Tobago (0) 


Despite a hat full of household names, Sweden could only manage a 0-0 draw at half time. Freddy had a fairly active 1st half, providing a couple of good crosses and a few of his trade mark darting runs into the box.


Shaka Hislop, kept Trinidad in the game, with some fine blocks and saves from Larsson, Ibrahimovic and co. Trinidad's confidence grew and made some good chances themselves. england needs to up the ante if they want to beat either of these teams, Sweden were far more creative and dynamic when attacking and Trinidad's resolve, commitment and desire looks far greater than England's.

Shades of the Champions league, with Avery John getting the 1st red card of the tournament after just 30 seconds of the 2nd half, however a brave substitution bringing on another attacking player was refreshing to see.

The 10 men of Trinidad & Tobago, frustrate Sweden, some great defense, a lot of passion and pride secures them a much deserved 0-0 draw.
