Sporting Kansas City Academy midfielder Kaile Auvray has been called back into the Trinidad and Tobago senior national team camp for two Concacaf Nations League B group stage matches against the Bahamas on March 24 and Nicaragua on March 27. The March 24 fixture between the Soca Warriors and the Bahamas will kick off at 3 p.m. CT and can be streamed on Paramount+. The match against Nicaragua can be viewed on TUDN and will begin at 6 p.m. CT.

Trinidad and Tobago Concacaf Nations League Schedule

  • Friday, March 24: Trinidad and Tobago vs. The Bahamas at 3 p.m. CT (Nassau, Bahamas)
  • Monday, March 27: Trinidad and Tobago vs. Nicaragua at 6 p.m. CT (Bacolet, Nicaragua)

Auvray has been with the Trinidad and Tobago Men's National Team since early March when he joined the group for a pair of friendlies against Jamaica. He started the first match on March 12, a 1-0 win for the Soca Warriors, and came on as a second-half sub in a scoreless draw two days later.

Auvray was born in Caen, France, and came up through the LOSC Lille Youth Academy in Lille, France. After moving to the United States in the summer of 2022, he joined the Sporting Kansas City Academy in January 2023. At 18 years old, he plays for the Sporting KC U-19s, who are led by head coach and Academy Director Declan Jogi.

Since mid-February, Auvray has been with Sporting Kansas City II for the team's 2023 preseason presented by Central Bank as an academy trialist. He has appeared in all three of the club's preseason matches and was with the team on their trip to Tulsa and Dallas before joining up with Trinidad and Tobago on March 8.

Boasting national team experience with France's U-17s, the U.S. U-17s, Saint-Martin and Trinidad and Tobago, Auvray will look to help guide Trinidad to a Group 3 win and promotion into Concacaf Nations League A. With just these two matches to go, Trinidad and Tobago currently sits in second place in their group, one point behind Nicaragua. Monday's matchup between the two could prove highly consequential with the winner of the group receiving a promotion into League A with powerhouses like the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Auvray will return to the Sporting KC Academy following his time with Trinidad and Tobago and will look to play a key role in the U-19s MLS NEXT competitions, including the upcoming GA Cup as well as the MLS NEXT Playoffs and Showcase.
