Sweet revenge 28 years later; T&T knock US out of the World Cup Final

Twenty-eight years ago, on November 19th, 1989, Trinidad and Tobago's Strike Squad needed only a draw to qualify for the 1990 World Cup Final in Italy.

But in a heart-wrenching game at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, the United States won 1-0 to knock T&T out of the World Cup.

Tonight, Trinidad and Tobago's Soca Warriors have returned the favour.

In similar fashion, the United States came to Trinidad and Tobago needing only a draw to qualify for the World Cup in Russia next year.

Yorke criticises lack of black bosses in football

Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has criticised the lack of black bosses in football and claims he cannot get an interview for a manager's job.

Yorke, 45, said he knew of black former players who would not do coaching badges as they felt they had little chance of getting a coaching role.

"If it's not because of the colour of our skin then tell me what it is?" the former Trinidad and Tobago player said.

"I'm speaking out about it. Be fair. At least give us an interview."
