MILLWALL defender Mahlon Romeo played the full 90 minutes in Antigua & Barbuda’s extraordinary World Cup qualifying win away to St Lucia last night.

The Caribbean country, with a population of just 90,000, had lost the first leg of their second round tie 3-1 at home last week.

But they gave themselves a slight chance of recovering that deficit when captain Joshua Parker gave them the lead on the night in the 70th minute.

However, Kurt Frederick looked to have sealed St Lucia’s place in the third round of the CONCACAF section of the qualification series when he levelled from the spot to make it 4-2 on aggregate with just eight minutes left.

What happened next, though, was incredible.

Antigua & Barbuda are in yellow and Romeo, who started at right-back, is wearing the number 17 shirt, seen in the video below.

      @LETEMCOME: haha, practically the first thing he says: passes to number 17 who I think is lucky to still be on the pitch. Sounds like a wall type of defender.
