CAPTAIN Che Benny scored five goals and added two assists to help the TT men’s futsal team earn bronze at the 2022 Caribbean Games in Guadeloupe, on Sunday.
Benny’s heroics guided TT to an 8-2 win over Martinique in the third-place playoff.
Benny was awarded the MVP of the tournament.
In an interview posted on the Futsal Association of TT Twitter page, Benny said he was proud of his team as futsal is still a developing sport in TT.
“Back home in Trinidad we just started playing futsal and we fell in love with the game and we are so happy to carry back a medal for our people back home,” Benny said.
“All we have to do is believe in ourselves and I don’t think it have a team that could beat us. We lost last night (to Suriname 8-7), but tough luck…I just want you all to remember that only three months (ago) we started playing this game. We are in love with it now and we are coming bigger and stronger.”
Giving his thoughts on the inaugural Caribbean Games, Benny said, “It means a lot. Every time I put on red, white and black for my country it means a lot, no matter what it is.
“(It is) the first Caribbean Games (and) we got a bronze medal. We are thankful.”
