RED FEVER. It was a draw, but it felt like a win. To all Trinidad and Tobago football fans it felt like Soca Warriors had won the World Cup. Yesterday, in Dortmund, Germany, in front of more than 60 000 fans and more than a billion television viewers, they battled hard for a 0-0 draw against fancied Sweden, with just ten men playing the entire second half. It was a result that shocked the footballing world and gave the Soca Warriors their first points in the prestigious company of football’s greatest. The amazing result put the 47th ranked Trinidad and Tobago literally at the “centre of the universe”. It’s the smallest country ever to play in the World Cup and yesterday’s heroics set up a huge mouth-watering battle when they face England on Thursday. Here, patrons waving the Trinidad flag while cheering on the Soca Warriors at Lucky Horseshoe in Worthing, Christ Church. (PS) (Picture by Charles Grant.)
