Ipswich Town's Carlos Edwards considers Trinidad & Tobago future

Carlos Edwards

Ipswich Town wideman Carlos Edwards has said he would end his international career with Trinidad & Tobago to benefit his club.

The 34-year-old played in the Conacaf Gold Cup over the summer to take his number of caps to 87.

"Obviously I am the most senior player on the team at the moment," he told BBC Radio Suffolk.

"I'm content helping Ipswich in any way possible, if it means I have to call it a day for Trinidad then so be it."

Born in Diego Martin, Edwards made his Soca Warriors debut in 1999 before coming to Britain to join Wrexham.

Spells with Luton, Sunderland and Wolves followed and the winger is entering a fifth season at Portman Road after a summer spent representing his country in the USA.

"My main focus is Ipswich Town. This is my family now. Trinidad & Tobago is my adopted family because 95% of the time I'm here," he said.

"It's hard being away from my family, especially with the twins.

"When I'm away it takes its toll on them because as soon as they see me walk through the door they're all over me like a rash.

"I want to be around my kids as much as possible."
