T&T's Soca Warriors shorthanded for first qualifier

[HEXAGONAL] Trinidad & Tobago coach Francisco Maturana has called in nine European-based players for World Cup 2010 qualifiers against Honduras and the United States (TV: April 1, live, 7:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. CT, ESPN2 and Galavision). The squad includes goalie Clayton Ince and Chris Birchall, who are both suspended for the Honduras game but will be eligible to face the USA, but it does not include captain Dwight Yorke, whose four-game suspension by FIFA (for his red card for dissent in a 2-2 tie with El Salvador in the Hexagonal opener) is currently being appealed.

Two of Yorke's teammates at English Premier League club Sunderland, Carlos Edwards and Kenwyne Jones, are included in the squad.

The Soca Warriors prepped for the Hexagonal matches with a friendly T&T won against Panama, 1-0,  last Wednesday. All but former MLS striker Cornell Glen from among the 11 starters were retained for the upcoming qualifiers.

T&T U-20 goalie Glenroy Samuel was added to the squad following the injury backup goalie Marvin Phillip suffered against Panama.

Five players carry yellow cards into the Honduras game -- Aklie Edwards, Carlos Edwards, Clyde Leon, Dennis Lawrence and Keon Daniel -- meaning a yellow card against Honduras will put them out the U.S. game.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO ROSTER:
Goalkeepers: *Clayton Ince (Walsall, England), Jan Michael Williams (Ferencvaros, Hungary), Marvin Phillip (W Connection), Glenroy Samuel (San Juan Jabloteh).
Defenders: Anthony Wolfe (North East Stars), Keyeno Thomas (Joe Public), Dennis Lawrence (Crewe Alexandra, England), Makan Hislop (United Petrotrin), Aklie Edwards (Defence Force).
Midfielders: *Chris Birchall (Brighton & Hove Albion, England), Trent Noel (San Juan Jabloteh), Densill Theobald (Caledonia AIA), Clyde Leon (W Connection), Carlos Edwards (Sunderland, England), Keon Daniel (United Petrotrin), Russell Latapy (no club), Atullah Guerra (San Juan Jabloteh), Khaleem Hyland (SV Zulte Waregem, Belgium).
Forwards: Jason Scotland (Swansea City, England), Stern John (Bristol City, England), Kenwyne Jones (Sunderland, England).
*Suspended for Honduras game on Saturday.
