FORMER national football captain Sedley Joseph, 80, has died. The T&T Sports Hall of Famer and former midfielder died earlier today. Joseph, who was a football commentator after his playing days, represented the national team in the 1960s among the likes of Alvin Corneal and Gally Cummings.

Joseph earned the T&T Hummingbird Medal Gold for his service to sport in 2005 and was inducted into T&T's Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.

Speaking about his former teammate on Monday, Corneal said Joseph was always calm and was the best football captain this country ever had. Apart from sharing the field, Corneal said he and Joseph shared a close relationship and Joseph was his best man at his wedding.
