Trinidadians take over the streets of downtown Port-of-Spain, Trinidad, Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2005, to celebrate their soccer team's qualification for their first World Cup after beating host Bahrain 1-0 to win the two-leg playoff 2-1 on aggregate. The twin-island nation is only the second country in the English-speaking Caribbean to qualify in the tournament's history, after Jamaica's Reggae Boyz in 1998. (AP Photo/Shirley Bahadur)

Trinidad & Tobago Qualify For First Time Ever FIFA World Cup Germany 2006

With the score tied at 1:1 from the first leg in Port of Spain, Bahrain had one hand on their ticket to World Cup Germany - while Trinidad and Tobago had to score to qualify.Bahrain sat back and allowed T&T to come at them - soaking up the pressure and mounting counter attacks on the break.T&T dominated possession but couldn't turn their ball possession into goals - and a scrappy first period ended with the scoreline reading 0:0.The second half began as the first half ended with T&T attacking the Bahrain goal and from a Dwight Yorke corner in the 49th minute Dennis Lawrence rose above the Bahrain defense to head home the Soca Warriors' long promised goal.With T&T ' virtually' qualified Bahrain were forced to switch to attack but T&T comfortably held on to deservedly qualify for a World Cup final stage for the first time in their history.Bahrain will regret not chasing the game in the first half.* A strange incident at the end of the game when a Bahrain player kicked the ball out of T&T goalkeeper Kelvin Jack's hand as he prepared to clear downfield and fired the ball into the net.Disallowed by the referee but hotly contested by the Bahrain team.
