Andrews prays for England defeat
Rangers and Trinidad & Tobago defender Marvin Andrews
Andrews is a devoutly religious man
Trinidad & Tobago defender Marvin Andrews is confident of an upset when his side face England at the World Cup.

"We are the smallest nation in the tournament with just 1.2m people, while England has 49 million," the Rangers player told BBC Scotland's 90 Minutes.

"It's a David and Goliath situation and, at the end of the day, David was the last man standing.

"God is going to do something for Trinidad & Tobago. I believe that with all of my heart."

Andrews, 30, has been capped 96 times for his country and the powerful centre-half is delighted that his nation has reached the finals for the first time.

"I've been dreaming of this for 16 years," he continued, with reference to Trinidad & Tobago's narrow failure to reach Italia '90.

"I've been praying every day to play at the World Cup before my career is finished."

Trinidad's Jack Warner, who is vice president of Fifa, also believes England are in for a tough game in Nuremberg on 15 June.

"I believe we have one of the best back fours in the tournament," he said.

"Our players know all about England's stars and have studied them in more ways than you can imagine."

The Soca Warriors' first World Cup Group B game is against Sweden on 10 June, before they play England and Paraguay.
