    Injured stars sat out

    By SCOTT ZERR -- Edmonton Sun

     Both Canada and T&T took to the pitch last night without one of their premier players.

     The Canadian lineup did not include Richard Hastings, the Gold Cup hero who notched the Golden Goal marker in the quarter-final upset of Mexico.

     Hastings suffered a thigh injury during the team's training sessions in Alliston, Ont., leading up to last night's game and he watched the proceedings from the stands.

     The visitors opted to go minus standout goalkeeper Shaka Hislop, the West Ham product who splits playing time with Canada's No. 1 ballstopper Craig Forrest, who is on the shelf thanks to hernia surgery.

     Hislop was deemed unfit to play to head coach Ian Porterfield, who will clearly want him in shape for future qualifying matches after Ince got a somewhat shaky shutout.

     *Canadian defender Tony Menezes left the pitch with a valuable souvenir as he and Manchester United star Dwight Yorke exchanged jerseys. Yorke did not attend the post-game press conference as he was getting treatment on an injured foot.

     T&T's other big name, Stern John, did not dress as he tweaked a knee in training.

     *Angus Eve scored a goal that was hardly a Plain Jane effort. This for a guy that plays on club team with most-average of names - Joe Public F.C.

     "If you look it up in the dictionary, Joe Public just means 40 people.

     '`It is the first professional team to be formed in Trinidad and Tobago," said Eve, who was delighted with the freedom given to his teammates as the Canadians keyed on Yorke and the support of the lively local T&T fans.

     "I think the crowd was our 12th man and we just want to thank the crowd for their tremendous support," he added.
