Orlando City forward Kevin Molino cannot stop scoring. This time it was for country as his Trinidad and Tobago side continued their Caribbean Cup campaign with a 4-2 victory over French Guiana on Thursday.
The 24-year-old was responsible for the Soca Warriors’ first two goals, netting in the 17th and 55th minute. This would give him three goals in the opening two games of the tournament. Molino had this to say after the performance,
“It’s great to go to the Gold Cup again. That was our first aim in this tournament. We came here tonight and had to grind out another result. These teams are no push overs but we kept it good for 90 plus minutes. I’m very excited about our chances and of course scoring goals for my country is always a great feeling.”
The Orlando City midfielder now has seven goals and an assist in his last four international games. This run of form is obviously great news for Orlando City as Molino appears to be peaking at the right time, just as his side joins MLS. Take a look Molino’s full player profile here.
The win guarantees that Trinidad and Tobago will play in the upcoming 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the side still has a great shot at winning the tournament and gaining a spot at the exciting Copa América Centenario in 2016. It would be advantageous for T&T to qualify for the Copa America, because not only will it give Molino the chance to play against the highest level of international competition, facing off against teams like Brazil and Argentina, but it will also give Orlando City fans around the United States a chance to see Molino in person as the tournament will take place at various cities around the United States.
T&T will face Cuba later today needing either a draw or win to clinch Group A and a spot in the Caribbean Cup final. The winner of the Caribbean Cup gets the automatic berth in the 2016 Copa America.
