Beenhakker hurt by England defeat
Trinidad & Tobago coach Leo Beenhakker
Trinidad and Tobago coach Leo Beenhakker admitted defeat to England had hurt after two late goals cost the Caribbean outfit.

Beenhakker's players held the English until Peter Crouch's 83rd minute goal, which England added to courtesy of Steven Gerrard in the final minute.

"We had chances but that's football," said Beenhakker. "We knew we could organise our game to survive.

"But we can live with the result although it always hurts."

The Trinidad coach hailed his players defending but was also quick to praise the opposition.

He added: "England have fantastic players and I wish them all the best."

Beenhakker's captain, Dwight Yorke, insisted it was among his career highlights playing England despite the defeat.

"It was a special moment because I have so many friends, so many memories of playing in England," he said.

"It was so much work. England got so much possession of the ball."
