Trinidad announce World Cup squad
Trinidad and Tobago captain Dwight Yorke
Yorke's experience will be crucial for the Soca Warriors in Germany
Trinidad and Tobago, England's second opponents in the World Cup group stages, have announced a provisional 24-man squad for the tournament.

But coach Leo Beenhakker will have to trim the squad by one player.

Former Manchester United star Dwight Yorke, now with Sydney, will captain the Soca Warriors.

British-based players in the squad include Coventry's Stern John, Port Vale's Chris Birchall, West Ham's Shaka Hislop and Falkirik's Russell Latapy.

"Before making the final choice, we did our homework the best we could," said Beenhakker.

"I have to protect the players also who brought us to Germany. They have to be credited and there must be balance in the team.

"I want to thank specially all the players who are not on the list but were on the road to Germany and I understand for the moment I have made 24 players happy.

"I understand much better that I have disappointed now many players from Trinidad and Tobago but I can assure them that the decisions we made were made in relation to looking for the best of the team."
