Maybe it is not only Di-ve.com that merits the moniker of gaffe Incorporated. Today's ANSA news report about Trinidad & Tobago's historical qualification to the world cup contains a glaring mistake. The subtitle to the news of the Caribbean team's qualification reads "Gli africani per la prima volta a fase finale Mondiali". Most Atlases as well as the CIA Factbook describe T&T's geographical location as: "Caribbean, islands between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, northeast of Venezuela ".
For the stat enthusiasts, the T&T's are coached by Leo Beenhakker (ex Netherlands), captained by evergreen Dwight Yorke and feature Russel Latapy in their attack. Another great coach will be back to the World Cup. this year... Henri Michel with the Côte d'Ivoire (an African team). Meanwhile... can anybody tell me if the Dutch East Indies ever qualified for a World Cup?
