Trinidad and Tobago
The national team of Trinidad and Tobago is preparing for the upcoming World Cup Group stage qualifying matches. First, the team in Argentina has played and there a solid resistance offered the hosts, but in the end lost it 0:3. Have lacked only a little, to withstand the entire first half without a Conceding, but then in the 45th minutes a conceded was collected from the standard. Also the second goal was pretty bizarre, while the third goals has been a classic counter-attack.
The opponent has not played but also with the strongest starting XI, but has up to this duel against Argentina lost almost a year long no game with Trinidad and Tobago. Last the team was defeated by Mexico during the quarter-finals of the Gold Cup in July 2013. This was followed by a series of international friendly games, where the player from Trinidad and Tobago have played twice draw and won three times. They have won twice in a row against Jamaica. The biggest star of this team is definitely striker k. Jones of Cardiff.

The Iranians prepare for the 2014 World Cup and to choose very carefully the opponents for the international friendly matches because they want to break the atmosphere in the team with a possible defeat in any case. But they could still get up to now no victory. They have played against Belarus, Montenegro, Angola, and every time there was a tie, while they could score a goal against Angola. This confirms that this national team at the upcoming World Cup will be the absolute underdog. But for the Iranians the Championship is a huge success alone already and they have can be nothing to lose, which is why they also dangerous.
