Yorke Is Leading the Trinidad Party Line


Byline: IAN CHADBAND

ALWAYS respect an old champion. Put two old champions in harness and be very wary.

On a bone-chilling night at Loftus Road, we were given a glimpse of how the partnership of a moody, ciggie-smoking, white haired Dutchman and the smiley, Aussie-based former playboy of the western world may yet give England a headache at this summer's World Cup.

Built on the admirable enterprise and organisation instilled by a world-class coach Leo Beenhakker and executed by the enduring class of their captain Dwight Yorke, Trinidad and Tobago delivered a workmanlike 2-0 win over Iceland which, even if unlikely to petrify Sven and co, at least offered the reality check that they'll be far from the pushovers they've been painted.
