    Despite having appeared at its only World Cup in 2006 Trinidad and Tobago (T&T) holds a decent record at qualifying campaigns and barring controversial decisions both on and off the field, T&T may well have graced the stage of three World Cups. At least that the view held by decorated player and coach Everald “Gally” Cummings.

    November 12, 2005 marked the day the Soca Warriors made national history for Trinidad and Tobago at the 2006 World Cup Finals Play off against Bahrain. It was the first time we qualified as a nation for the FIFA World Cup and remains the only time to this date. Recorded in the 49th minute of this intense match, midfielder Dwight Yorke was awarded a corner and it was Team Defender Dennis Lawrence whose downward header led Trinidad and Tobago to its glorious and unforgettable victory! 


    3 - Worst World Cup Moments for T&T: Brent Sancho (Video)
    Here's the moment, captured by Getty Images, where it is shown that Peter Crouch is pulling the hair of Brent Sancho


     
    The pulling of Brent Sancho’s dreadlocks by Peter Crouch in the Trinidad and Tobago World Cup Group Stage Match against England in 2006, was and still remains a highly controversial topic. It was the second half of the second World Cup match in Germany, and neither team had scored, then eighty-three minutes into the game, Crouch broke the deadlock knocking the ball into the back of the net with his head, but not without pulling on to Sancho’s dreadlocks.

    World Cup qualification in the CONCACAF Zone (North and Central America and the Caribbean) is currently conducted over a four-phase basis as of 2014. In the first phase the ten lowest ranked teams (26-35) of the 35 FIFA-affiliated national teams contest a one-off tie to reduce the number of teams to 30.

    10 - Inside the Soul of a 'Warrior'
    Brent Sancho 
    Playing football at a professional level is what most young players aspire to, playing at a World Cup is what they consider the pinnacle of everything they set out to do. It is a dream held by many but achieved by a few.
     
    Brent Sancho represents one such player who would have dreamt both dreams and achieved them both.
