ROTENBURG, Germany, June 17 (Reuters) Trinidad&Tobago defender Cyd Gray will miss their final World Cup Group B match against Paraguay on Tuesday.

''Cyd will be out for at least a week with a partial torn ligament in his upper leg,'' team spokesman Shaun Fuentes told Reuters today.

''He picked it up in the game against England and managed to play until the end. But once he had warmed down, the doctor looked at it and said he needed to rest.'' The Caribbean side, playing in their first finals, still have a mathematical chance of progressing to the second round, despite losing 2-0 to England on Thursday.

If Trinidad beat Paraguay and Sweden lose to England, second place will be decided on goal difference between the islanders and the Scandinavians.

England, with a 100 per cent record after two games, have already qualified for the second phase. Paraguay have been eliminated.

Fuentes said Trinidad would return to training on Saturday after being given a day off yesterday to spend with their families.
