Final Cap for Edwards?
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.

It's a bit early to be eliminated from the 2014 World Cup isn't it! Let's hope he can focus 100% on Ipswich now and earn a new contract in the summer.

Its a shame really as the group setup (CONCACAF) will always mean that Mexico and the USA will qualify for all world cup finals as their hardest games are against each other. Teams like Jamaica, T&T, Guyana, Barbados and Costa Rica try and battle it out for the third placed play off. It resembles the Scottish Prem really...

LOL@NW10 Guyana or Barbados have never been anywhere near qualifying for the World Cup.

Players who announce their international retirement are unprofessional.
