Black Cats pair free to face Hammers

Published Add your comment

Trinidad and Tobago will not prevent Sunderland´s Carlos Edwards and Kenwyne Jones from facing West Ham this weekend.

The Black Cats refused to release the duo for Wednesday night´s friendly international against Jamaica on medical grounds.

After Edwards (groin) and Jones (virus) were withdrawn, the club rejected a request from the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation to have their conditions independently verified, and the TandTFF threatened to impose a FIFA sanction that would deny Sunderland use of the pair until five days after Wednesday night´s clash in Kingston.
