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.
