Portsmouth trials for Trinidad pair

Portsmouth have been trialling two mystery Trinidad youngsters this week.

Boss Harry Redknapp revealed: "At Portsmouth we've had a couple of kids in from Trinidad this week who look very good players but you think, 'where are the English kids?'

"We need to start finding some and need to produce them at a younger age. But where will they come from? They're not playing in the streets, we are not producing and I don't see a great amount of talent about.

"I watch youth games and there aren't too many players who are jumping out at me.

"I don't see too many coming through like Joe Cole or Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard or Jermain Defoe."
