Beenhakker announces T&T finals 23

May 15, 2006

Trinidad and Tobago coach Leo Beenhakker has finalised his 23-man squad for the World Cup after dropping Evans Wise from the provisional party.

Wise, a winger with Waldhof Mannheim in Germany, will be invited to remain with the squad during the forthcoming training camps as a reserve player.

However, United Petrotrin midfielder Anthony Rougier has been cut following last Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Peru.

Los Angeles Galaxy forward Cornell Glen keeps his place despite sustaining a hamstring injury in a recent Major League Soccer game. Glen is likely to sit out much of the team's preparations but will work with the national team's doctors.

The squad will head to Manchester, England on Saturday for a week-long training camp before playing Wales in a friendly on May 27.

Trinidad and Tobago squad for 2006 World Cup: Kelvin Jack (Dundee), Shaka Hislop (West Ham), Clayton Ince (Coventry); Dennis Lawrence (Wrexham), Cyd Gray (CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh), Marvin Andrews (Rangers), Brent Sancho, Ian Cox (both Gillingham), Atiba Charles (W Connection), Avery John (New England Revolution); Silvio Spann (unattached), Chris Birchall (Port Vale), Aurtis Whitley (CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh), Anthony Wolfe (Jabloteh), Densill Theobald (Falkirk), Carlos Edwards (Luton), Dwight Yorke (Sydney FC); Russell Latapy (Falkirk), Stern John (Coventry), Kenwyne Jones (Southampton), Collin Samuel (Dundee United), Jason Scotland (St Johnstone), Cornell Glen (Los Angeles Galaxy).
