The Trinidad and Tobago national football team, nicknamed The Soca Warriors, is the national team of Trinidad and Tobago and is controlled by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation. The country has produced several Premiership players, like Dwight YorkeStern John and Shaka Hislop, and qualified for the 2006 World Cup.

Usually considered the best team in the Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago has won the Caribbean Cup eight times.

On October 122005, Trinidad and Tobago beat Mexico 2-1, with a brace of goals from Stern John. This win allowed them to finish in 4th place in the CONCACAF final qualification round, and therefore participated in a playoff with the fifth place Asian team Bahrain for a chance to enter the 2006 World Cup. After a 1-1 draw in Port of Spain, the team beat Bahrain 1-0 to clinch their first ever qualification for the World Cup.

T&T played Demerara and Barbados for the Martinez Shield between 1923 and 1933. Technically, their first ever match was a 1-1 draw against Demerara, but no exact record and no exact dates for those matches exist.
