Ipswich Town skipper Carlos Edwards may have played his final game for Trinidad & Tobago, according to the Soca Warriors’ offical website.

The 35-year-old has won 86 caps for his country and played 87 minutes in the side’s 2-0 victory over Jamaica on Tuesday as they completed a double over the Reggae Boyz in the Caribbean Classico, having won the first game 1-0 on Friday.

The match gave fans the opportunity to say farewell to another veteran, Port Vale’s Chris Birchall, who is retiring, having played for several years alongside Edwards.

A quote on the Soca Warriors’ website said: “T&T has now won the Caribbean Classico series with 1-0 and 2-0 results respectively and ended their 2013 campaign on a high note.

“It was also a farewell match for Port Vale’s Christopher Birchall and also paid tribute to Carlos Edwards who has not officially retired but it seems as though head coach Stephen Hart is planning on rebuilding a team with younger troops.”
