Carlos Edwards is closing in on a century of caps for his country but says it's not a target for him.

The 30-year-old midfielder is currently away on World Cup duty with Trinidad and Tobago, with games against Costa Rica and Mexico to come over the next week.

If he plays in both, he will move to within 22 caps of that magic ton but Carlos tells the Club website: "I'm proud to play for my country but I'm not going out with the target of reaching 100 caps. If it comes along, then it's a bonus.

"I will carry on doing my best for my country and when the time comes to hang up my boots, then I hope I can say that I have done my bit to not only push my country forward on the football pitch but also leave Trinidad and Tobago in a good position in the FIFA rankings.
