Trinidad without Yorke for World Cup qualifier

BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Trinidad and Tobago was without Dwight Yorke for its World Cup qualifier against the United States on Wednesday after the veteran midfielder was recalled by Sunderland, his team in the English Premier League.

Yorke made his first appearance for the Soca Warriors since the 2006 World Cup on Saturday, wearing the captain's armband when T&T tied Guatemala 1-1. He had planned to play again Wednesday, but did not travel with the team to the United States after Sunderland manager Roy Keane apparently told him to return to England.

Yorke hasn't played for Sunderland yet this season because of injuries. Sunderland has a Premier League match at Wigan on Saturday.

"I am feeling caught between a rock and a hard place with my club and my country," Yorke told the Trinidad Express on Saturday. "I want to play against the U.S. but I don't know if I will be allowed to."

FIFA rules require club teams to release players for World Cup qualifying duty, and the Express said FIFA vice president Jack Warner sent Keane a letter objecting to Yorke's recall. But Warner, who is from Trinidad and Tobago, said the country won't file a complaint. Yorke has a one-year contract with Sunderland, which has reportedly promised him a coaching job when it expires.

T&T has never beaten the United States in a World Cup qualifier, going into Wednesday's game with an 0-8-2 record. The Soca Warriors are second to the Americans in Group One in World Cup qualifying from the North and Central American and Caribbean region semifinals. The top two teams in the group advance to next year's six-nation finals.
