Facts
  • Trinidad and Tobago are embarking on their 11th FIFA World Cupô campaign since 1966. They missed out narrowly on qualifying in 1974, and in 1990 came tantalisingly close to going to Italy but were beaten 1-0 in their final qualifying match by the United States.
     
  • Trinidad and Tobago's most famous footballer is Dwight Yorke, who plays for Blackburn Rovers in the English Premier League. The Caribbean islands, which have a population of more than one million inhabitants, enjoyed their best win more than 30 years ago, beating Antigua and Barbuda 11-1.
     
  • The national team took their worst defeat more recently. In 2000 they lost 7-0 to Mexico in the Aztec Stadium in Mexico City.
