Rougier suffers Trinidad and Tobago heartbreak
Trinidad & Tobago coach Leo Beenhakker has cut Anthony Rougier from his World Cup squad.
And Beenhakker has admitted that he deeply regretted having to omit the former Reading, Port Vale, Hibs and Raith Rovers star.
The Dutchman told www.socawarriorstt.com: 'The guy worked fantastically and he did everything he had to do to try and make it and in the end I had to make a decision.
'I am sorry but it was not enough because he showed me he is a great professional and a great guy but he was not enough in terms of the conditions to make the team.'
The 23-man squad Beenhakker wants to take to Germany is now clear although there is still one element of doubt with Evans Wise called up as 24th man in case Cornell Glen does not recover from injury.
Beenhakker added: 'We have the 23 players now but we also have the Cornell Glen situation. I don't want to put pressure by giving him a deadline.
'He will miss a big part of the team preparation but he will work everyday with our physio and I will give him a fair chance.
'At the same time I had a very long conversation with Evans Wise and he will come over to England (Manchester) to be involved in the team preparations until the end of the camp in Austria.
'I told him very clearly that it's a 50-50 situation because if Cornell is fit then I have to send him (Wise) home and then if Cornell is not fit then I have the unpleasant job of releasing him from the squad.'
