Trinidad friendly given all-clear


Football Focus interview - Capello on upcoming friendlies

England's friendly match against Trinidad and Tobago on 1 June will definitely go ahead after a row over rental terms for the stadium.

The dispute centred on the advertising of alcohol and tobacco in Port of Spain which the government want to change.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) took legal action to stop a new agreement being put in place just two weeks before the friendly.

The 27,000-capacity Hasely Crawford Stadium will host the game at 2230 BST.

TTFF spokesman Shaun Fuentes said: "We thought that all along the ministry of sport would in the long run realise that it had a case out of its favour.

"When you have an entire nation looking forward to an event - a special day in its history, particularly sporting wise - it was always going to be difficult to deny the masses such an experience and as such the ministry had to give in."
