Dagenham & Redbridge defender Gavin Hoyte made his Trinidad & Tobago debut last night.
The right back, whose two-year contract runs out at the end of June, came off the bench to replace Carlyle Mitchell for the final 19 minutes of their game with Argentina, and they were trailing 3-0 at the time after goals from Rodrigo Palacio, Javier Mascherano and Maxi Rodriguez.
No further goals were conceded while the former Arsenal youngster was on the pitch, as he got to rub shoulders with the likes of Lionel Messi , and he did win a corner three minutes after coming on.
The 23-year-old, who has been offered a new deal at Victoria Road, will be hoping to build on that experience with some more minutes when they face Iran on Sunday in Sao Paulo.
