Scotland Hat Trick See's Off Dominican Republic

Scotland Hat Trick See's Off Dominican Republic

Jason Scotland continued his resurgence of form with a first half hat trick against lowly Dominican Republic that helped the soca warriors thrash their close neighbours 9-0.

In recent months Trinidad and Tobago's Columbian manager Francisco Maturana has come under criticism over his selection of the 29 year old. Called up for his country for two crucial world cup qualifiers the striker was omitted from the former Athletico Madrid managers side much to the displeasure of Swansea City manager Roberto Martinez and Scotland himself.

Martinez Told The SWEP:

'We all know what happened last time Jason was called up.And it's important to make sure it doesn't happen again.I have spoken to the Trinidad & Tobago federation and we will be working closely together to monitor Jason's situation.They have guaranteed me that he will play some part, although I don't know whether it will be two minutes or two lots of 90 minutes.But they have guaranteed me he will play a role and that's good news because going all that way to sit on the bench for two games is just a waste of time.'


Despite tensions between the Trinidad and Tobago football Federation and Swansea City that at one point threatened to signal the end of Scotland's international career the former Dundee United striker is now firmly back in the frame for two crunch world cup qualifiers against Guatemala at the Estadio Nacional Mateo Flores on Saturday.

The Soca Warriors currently are in third place in CONCAF qualification group three with 4 points along with their next opponents the Los Chapines.

Scotland will prove a vital asset to Trinidad and Tobago's chances of making qualification to the finals for the second successive tournaments. After putting 9 past a shell shocked Dominican Republic side at the Hasley Crawford Stadium in the islands capital Port Of Spain, Maturana will be hoping he can overhaul a strong American side when Bob Bradly's team roll into the capital on the 15th October. Two back to back wins for Scotland and co against Guatemala and the United States will guarantee progression into the fourth round the CONCAF qualification campaign.
