Edwards (left) vs GuatemalaCarlos Edwards thought for a moment about making a decision over his international future a couple days after T&T lost 2-1 to Guyana last month.

But then he changed his mind, played the final game and returned to England to rejoin Ipswich Town.

But the former Sunderland man is hoping he could now play some type of role in T&T’s 2018 campaign which begins in 2015. Prior to that though there will be a couple Caribbean Cup and Gold Cup campaigns.

“I thought about saying something about my future in international football a day after the loss to Guyana but I did some thinking and decided that the time wasn’t right.

I’ve given some thought to it and I haven’t really made up my mind because my country’s national team is very close to me. I went to a World Cup with Trinidad and Tobago and I’d love to keep playing for as long as I can but of course things have to be considered,” Edwards said.

"Everything is up in the air at the moment regarding the international side of things for me.

"Perhaps I could help out at the next World Cup in an advisory role, or something similar to that. But saying that you never know what is around the corner and it's something that I will need to have a think about, although it definitely appeals to me,” Edwards told Ipswich’s club website.

The 33-year-old Edwards has played 82 times for T&T, scoring four goals since making his debut in 1999.
