Trinidad & Tobago have fired manager Stephen Hart after two consecutive losses in the final stage of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, the country’s football association said.

“The Trinidad & Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and Senior National Men’s Team Head Coach Stephen Hart have agreed to part ways with immediate effect,” it said in a statement, reports Reuters.

The Caribbean nation sit joint bottom of the six-team group alongside the United States after losing 2-0 at home to Costa Rica and 3-1 at Honduras.

Trinidad & Tobago’s next qualifying match is at home to Panama in March.

The TTFA said Hart’s replacement will be announced “in the shortest possible time”.
