Three members of the national team that played in the recently concluded Group C World Cup qualifiers have been fined for breaking camp to go on a boat ride.

Soca Warriors Kevin Molino, Joevin Jones and Mekeil Williams were fined their qualification bonus for leaving the team hotel to go to the boat ride three days prior to the September 2nd match against Guatemala at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

Head coach Stephen Hart said the matter was investigated and dealt with internally by staff prior to the match.

The T&T team came from a goal down to draw with Guatemala 2-2 in front a sold-out crowd at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo, with the left-footed Jones (Joevin) getting the double strike to earn his team the vital point to advance to the Final Round of the FIFA World Cup Qualifier, Concacaf Zone.

It is understood the players are likely to be sent to the football association’s Disciplinary Committee upon investigation. But Hart, when quizzed on whether the players should receive additional punishment, said “That is entirely up to the FA to decide. We have dealt with it as a team but I cannot say what the FA should or should not do.”
