Ipswich winger Edwards wants to leave T&T in good position

Ipswich Town's Carlos Edwards says he wants to leave the Trinidad & Tobago national team in a good position when he retires.

The 30-year old is currently on international duty for his nation and although they cannot reach next year's World Cup, he wants to produce positive performances against Costa Rica and Mexico beginning Saturday.

"It's disappointing that we are not going to South Africa next year but we have some good players coming through and hopefully we can make it to the next finals," Edwards told the club's official website.

If Edwards plays in both qualifiers it will take his tally of international caps to 78 but he says he is not thinking about the century.

"I'm proud to play for my country but I'm not going out with the target of reaching 100 caps," he added. "If it comes along, then it's a bonus.

"I will carry on doing my best for my country and when the time comes to hang up my boots, then I hope I can say that I have done my bit to not only push my country forward on the football pitch but also leave Trinidad & Tobago in a good position in the FIFA rankings."
