Cordell Cato called in by Trinidad and Tobago for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying

cato mug 2012.jpgAs was expected after several reports last night, the Sounders confirmed Wednesday that forward/midfielder Cordell Cato has been called in by the Trinidad and Tobago men’s national team for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying.

Cato, 19, will miss at least two MLS games as he joins his national team’s training camp in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla, from Thursday to Tuesday. The tournament then kicks off in Carson, Calif. on March 22 and the championship game is April 2 in Kansas City.

Trinidad and Tobago is in Group B with Mexico, Panama and Honduras.

Cato is the second Sounder involved in the tournament. Recently, forward Babayele Sodade was called in by Canada to join training camp. The two could face off in a scrimmage between the two countries on Friday.

Last year, Cato was a part of T&T’s team for the 2011 CONCACAF Under-20 championships.
