Yorke slapped with four-game suspension

[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Trinidad & Tobago's bid to return to the World Cup finals for a second straight time suffered a setback as captain Dwight Yorke was handed a four-game suspension and fined $4,200 for his outburst at the end of the Soca Warriors' 2-2 tie at El Salvador last month.

Yorke, 37, was sent off for his second yellow card when he complained to the referee after the match ended in a 2-2 tie on Osmael Romero's second goal on a free kick, which came in stoppage time.

The Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation has filed a notice of appeal, saying Yorke "complained to the referee for the safety and security of his players in view of the fact that missiles were being hurled onto the field" and that Yorke denied using obscene language.

Trinidad & Tobago advanced to the Hexagonal when Yorke returned to lead the Soca Warriors to a 2-1 win over the USA, converting the winning penalty kick in the final group game played last fall.

Yorke is playing in World Cup qualifying for the sixth time.
