Two of the English Premiership’s best youngsters who have represented England at youth level, are now prepared to play for Trinidad & Tobago.
Fresh from a move to English Premiership club Hull City from Fulham, striker Bobby Zamora has set his sights on playing for the Soca Warriors.
This was confirmed by the player’s agent Eric Waters as he relayed the message to national team manager David Muhammad.
The other player likely to soon be in the set-up is Bolton Wanderers defender Jlloyd Samuel.
Following an enquiry from the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation into the players’ availability after the new FIFA ruling a few weeks ago, Zamora indicated his interest and is now hopeful of making his debut for T&T.
Only time will tell whether it comes in the current 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign, with the Trinis’ next game on August 12 against El Salvador.
‘I’ve spoken to Bobby and he’s confirmed a strong desire to play for Trinidad and Tobago,’ said Waters.
Zamora has asked to speak directly to senior T&T officials prior to joining the national team.
