Luton Town winger Carlos Edwards says Trinidad & Tobago can pull off an upset and beat England at the World Cup.
The Caribbean side will be aiming to emulate Senegal who shocked holders France in the 2002 tournament.


Speaking ahead of his country's warm-up against Iceland, Edwards told BBC Radio Five Live anything could happen.

"It is possible we could do it. We are a team and it's 11 v 11. Whoever wants it most will prevail at the end of the day and the guys are really up for it."

England are due to meet Trinidad & Tobago on 15 June in their second match in group B, which also includes Sweden and Paraguay.

Edwards said his team, which will be skippered by former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke, would certainly not be overawed.

"I had the privilege of playing against Steven Gerrard in the FA Cup with Luton - and I don't see the big difference," he said.

"At the end of the day it's about how you carry yourself, how you look after yourself, your professionalism and the way you go about things.

"England has one of the top teams in the world, which they have proven, although unfortunately they have not been successful for a long while.

"But they are a quality team and hopefully on the 15th of June we can get a good result against them."
