Final Cap for Edwards?
Wednesday, 16th Nov 2011 11:46
Town right-back Carlos Edwards won his 82nd and perhaps final Trinidad and Tobago cap as his national side beat Guyana 2-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Port of Spain overnight. The victory was in vain with the Soca Warriors having been eliminated from the qualification process after losing 2-1 to the Guyanese in Georgetown on Friday.
According to speculation in the Caribbean, 33-year-old Edwards is likely to be one of a number of players announcing their international retirement in the wake of their early World Cup exit.
Blues striker Jason Scotland recently announced that he would no longer play for his country, while former Town loanee Stern John could also end his international career.
Edwards, who played in all three of Trinidad and Tobago’s games at the World Cup in Germany in 2006, scored four international goals.

If you’re one of the many Town fans whose reaction to the Brentford game included assertions that the Blues have a reputation for throwing away points late in games — “Typical bloody Ipswich”, “We did this for the whole of last year, too”, “When are we ever going to learn how to close out games?” — then I’m afraid you’ve been talking nonsense.
