I doh know how ah happen to be home that day but it was a fortunate thing. Watch the game and I was filled with such pride watching the game with the belief that we had a wonderful chance to win! I had tears in my eyes after the game ended. I was so proud. I only wished that I had watched it with my brothers and in Trinidad. Actually the first game against Sweden when we showed that we belonged never made me even prouder to be a Trini. Sweeter than sweet!

i was upstairs impulse sports bar in point the roof fell down tables broke swore a brawl took place after the goal.from the startin whistle the streets was empty after the game it was madness that lasted until the next morning.i calmly told my supervisor (all the bosses stayed away) that if Trinidad won i wasn't coming back and so said so done.that maximus Dan played the whole evenin into the next morning if it was any closer to carnival it would of road march with no contenters,no doubt the best day of my life

Hmm, I was in my room watching the game in the early hours of the morning (I think it was already morning). I'm sure everyone else around me must have heard me celebrating our goal, then protesting the disallowed 'goal' and finally celebrating the final whistle!

The game was live in China, but because of the time difference it was either late at night or very early in the morning. I was too excited, so I can't remember exactly what time it was here. :P I'll never forget that day though, never!

I was workin in de bank back home at the time and take meh lunch hour...and a half same time as the start of the game. Only thing is we couldn't see the game on we tv so I had to listen to the whole thing on radio. Well boy when we score I think the branch shut down yes...I had no customers until about ten minutes from the end and the tension was insane. I tell meh customer "Eh bro yuh could understand if ah ask yuh for a ten minutes??" The man say no probllem dred I wanna listen to this ting too!!! I dont remember ever being that happy about something nah.  :beermug: ;D

I took the day off from work that day to watch the game....was by myself so no one else to bother me so I could witness one of the greatest moments in TnT history....

As the match came closer to an end and Latas and Yorkie start holding up the ball to drain the clock...my chest start to swell with a huge lump in my throat...resurecting my climatic emotions of '89

Once the final whistle blow, I couldn't hold it in any more....dare I say I bawled and cried like a baby...and couldn't believe that... WE....MY Trinidad and Tobago...just qualified for the World Cup!!
