The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation have written to Fifa to request their help in the release of three British-based players for their forthcoming friendlies against Panama and Nicaragua.
Walsall goalkeeper Clayton Ince, Swansea City defender Dennis Lawrence and Dundee United forward Collin Samuel are all set to miss the games unless football's governing body intervene.
Jerome Champagne, delegate to the President of Fifa for special affairs, received a letter signed by TTFF special advisor Jack Warner.
The letter requested that Fifa step in and enforce their regulations as both games are marked on the official match calendar - meaning that any country playing at the time should automatically have access to all of their players.
A letter from the Saddlers indicated that Ince was struggling with right thigh and groin injuries, which they say have prevented him from training for the past three weeks.
It also stated the player was not physically 100 per cent fit and could not meet the demands of international football.
However, TTFF are aware Ince has continued to appear for the Saddlers and played the full 90 minutes of the 4-0 win over Mansfield on Saturday.
While Coventry City also asked for Chris Birchall and Stern John to be excused from the Panama game, both players have reportedly stated that they will now be available.
The Trinidad & Tobago squad also includes Walsall's Hector Sam, Atiba Charles (Glenavon), Carlos Edwards (Luton), Dwight Yorke (Sunderland), Jason Scotland (St Johnstone) and Kenwyne Jones (Southampton).
