T&T robbed of stoppage time

T&T robbed of stoppage time.
Ex-W/Cup ref backs Warriors chief.
By: Lasana Liburd (Trinidad Express).

 
Trinidad and Tobago national football team captain Radanfah Abu Bakr and coach Brian Williams felt that Guyanese referee Roy Douglas McArthur should have given the hosts additional time because of time wasting in Thursday's 2007 Under-20 World Cup qualifier against Jamaica.
Jamaican goalkeeper Dwayne Kerr spent large portions of the second half on his back receiving treatment and ate away much of the awarded seven minutes of stoppage time in the same manner at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella.
The young "Soca Warriors" won 1-0 but lost 2-1 on goal aggregate and were eliminated for the Under-20 World Cup qualifying tournament.
Kerr's antics incensed the young "Soca Warriors" and almost sparked a full-scale brawl between the teams after the final whistle when the hosts threatened to exact revenge.
McArthur might have defused the situation when Abu Bakr pleaded for justice during stoppage time but allegedly informed the 19-year-old defender that additional time could not be increased under any circumstance.
"I asked him if we could get additional time to make up (for the time lost to Kerr's treatment)," Abu Bakr told the Trinidad Express. "But he said that there could be no additional time to additional time. I asked him if the goalkeeper just stayed on his back for the entire seven minutes (of stoppage) would he just blow off the game after."
Trinidad and Tobago referee Ramesh Ramdhan, who officiated at the 2002 World Cup co-hosted by Japan and Korea, said that, if Abu Bakr was correct in his recollection, the Concacaf official committed a grave error.
"He was very, very wrong," said Ramdhan, who was not present in Marabella but offered advice based on the team captain's interpretation. "If you felt that you needed to add seven minutes to the game and anything happens that causes more time to be lost, you have to add it on.
"You must give back to the game the time that it was deprived. That is the law of the game."
Coach Brian Williams was disappointed to go out and unhappy with Jamaica's tactics but still offered best wishes to the Caribbean rival.
"It was not the best (approach) for the game but the result was the most important thing," said Williams. "Jamaica has a good team I hope they give a good account of themselves in the Concacaf Under-20 finals."

Honestly, I can't believe it came down to us playing a play off game to go through to the next phase. It's sad!!! St Kitts put a cut arse on us, aint that some shit!  :'(   Now, they could investigate all they want about the time that was not added, the result will remain the same.
