Bostock gets FIFA clearance to play for Trinidad and Tobago

Bostock gets FIFA clearance to play for Trinidad and Tobago
TTFA Media


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association today received official clearance from FIFA for John Bostock to represent this country’s National Senior Men’s Team.

The correspondence from FIFA was received by the TTFA which has declared Bostock eligible to play for T&T. This also means that Bostock cannot play for any other country from here on as FIFA rules state once a player has switched nationality once, he cannot make a second change to become eligible for another country.

“It’s good news for us,” T&T head coach Stephen  Hart said as he thanked the TTFA for its efforts in securing the necessary documentation for Bostock. “Obviously it’s been a long time for this to come through going back to March and I would like to thank the FA for taking all the necessary steps and seeing it through to the end.”

Bostock previously represented England in official competition at the youth level. His father is Trinidad and Tobago-born which allows him to play for T&T.

Bostock to miss upcoming World Cup Qualifiers

Bostock to miss upcoming World Cup Qualifiers
TTFA Media


The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association wishes to advise that Midfielder John Bostock has withdrawn from the National Senior Men’s Team for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica and Honduras due to personal reasons.

Bostock was given clearance by FIFA on Monday to represent this country. However he has informed National Senior Team Head Coach Stephen Hart that he regrettably cannot travel this week to join the rest of the squad.

The player issued a statement today, stating that he hopes to make his international debut for Trinidad and Tobago in the not too distant future.

“As many may know it has been a long process in receiving the clearance from FIFA. So understandably it is now with deep regret that due to personal reasons that I’m unable to disclose, I cannot play for Trinidad and Tobago at this stage,” Bostock told TTFA Media.

“I wish Coach Stephen Hart and the boys all the best for the upcoming games. I will of course be following the matches closely and God willing I will be able to make my international bow in the not too distant future,” Bostock stated.

Head Coach Hart added: “I had a conversation with him where he was emotional in expressing his withdrawal due to a family situation which he did not want to disclose.

“We have 23-players in the squad and we will get on with the business of preparing for Friday’s match. The mood is good and upbeat after the first couple of sessions and everyone appears to be in a good physical and mental state of mind based on how things have looked on the training field so far and we’ll have everybody in by today and with that we’ll move ahead full steam with the preparations,” Hart said.

Hart and the T&T squad continues its preparations today with a full session at the Hasely Crawford Stadium this evening. Some of the other overseas-based players joins the squad today including Mexican-based duo Jomal Williams and Yohance Marshall, Belgium-based midfielder Khaleem Hyland, defender Sheldon Bateau and Holland-based winger Levi Garcia.

If its a family situation he has expressed then it is what it is.

But the last time he was called up notwithstanding the FA didn't get FIFA clearance he also said his passport was stolen and he couldn't travel anyways.

Do we know if ever got that lost passport situation resolved?

Congrats to John. But  as it is right now, that is of little comfort to our team going into this game. If we don't get a point here tonight, we will being in a real trou macak. But let's hope his personal issues are dealt with first before he step on the field for us in the very near future ....... hopefully ...... maybe.

I looked at him for about 20 minutes in his last match.

Decent distribution. Sent in a great past from the right top of the box only for his teammate to find a way not to schore.
Decent left foot. Was taking the FKs for the team.

As I said only saw him for 20 mnts but liked what I saw.
Defensively speaking can't really remember.

So have we seen the last of Bostock? Does Saintfiet possess the capital to keep Bostock on board? Should a Belgian coach be able to form ties with a player who has played at Antwerp and in Leuven?

I think we have...but time will tell. Ligue 2 will be on winter break, so he should be available for the Nicaragua friendlies as well as Gold Cup qualifiers.

We don't know how far he has reached in resolving his personal problems. We need serious help right now. we have about 4 important games in one month. We have to win all of them. You see the state of our team and football. If and when he comes, we need performance. He will be relied upon heavily. If he can't give us that reliance, what is the point in coming?

What make you think David John want bostock on the team?

He would rather have a connection player in bostock place, and Cummings off the team... as soon as Cummings was gone, a connection player was selected for the squad..

So it may not be john, but the dictator and his minions

DamnJackassWilliams and his cronies would never want a man like Bostock on the team as he probably is too independent and cannot be controlled.

if he didn't want to play then he would not have went through the trouble to travel to trinidad during the first st vincent encounter in the first place. god knows if DJW had anything to do with his change of heart, or maybe it was something he heard or saw while he was here that turned him off. in case you haven't noticed, our infrastructure is not quite conducive to the sport of football on a professional level, and who the hell needs that?
