Trinidad and Tobago Soca Warriors shocked victory over the United States recently has propelled them to third in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) ranking after the release of the World Rankings by the sport’s governing body recently.

The Soca Warriors earned a significant jump in the World Ranking issued by FIFA, moving up 16 places to 83rd, making them the biggest movers in the Caribbean following their 2-1 win that denied the United States a place in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The result was sweet revenge for the Soca Warriors, after the Americans dealt them a similar blow in qualification for the l990 FIFA World Cup in Italy.

The Soca Warriors is now behind Jamaica and Haiti, who tops the rankings table.
