Fulham goalkeeper Tony Warner could be playing against England in the World Cup after agreeing to play for his father’s homeland, Trinidad and Tobago.

The 31-year-old last visited Trinidad in 1995 and does not have a Trinidad passport, but Clyde Warner, who came to Britain 44 years ago, was born there.

“It’s a great step for me and I’m really excited about being given the chance,” said Warner.

“I’m hoping that I can add some value to what’s happening with the football in this country.”

“Now we’re teaching him the national anthem,” said defender Brent Sancho.

Trinidad have been drawn with Paraguay, Sweden and England in Group B for the World Cup.
