Daggers veteran watches on from the bench as Soca Warriors lose World Cup qualifier

Dagenham & Redbridge midfielder Andre Boucaud was an unused substitute as Trinidad & Tobago were beaten 2-1 away to Costa Rica in a World Cup qualifier on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old would surely have watched on from the bench in horror as the Soca Warriors fell behind to a goal inside the first minute from Francisco Calvo in San Jose.

With ten minutes before the interval, though, Kevin Molino restored parity for the visitors at the Estadio Nacional.

The sides looked set to head into the break level, but former Fulham forward Bryan Ruiz put Costa Rica ahead with what proved to be the winner in the 44th minute.

The result leaves Trinidad & Tobago five points adrift of automatic qualification for next summer’s World Cup with just four games remaining.

Last Thursday, Boucaud was also an unused substitute in a 2-0 qualifier loss against the United Statest, with Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic scoring both goals.
