PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, March 17. (Cana):

English division one football side Watford and Brazilian club champions Sao Paulo clash tomorrow in a match billed as a farewell tribute to Trinidad and Tobago's outgoing President Ellis Clarke.

The Watford side includes England winger John Barnes and ex-international striker, Luther Blissett,both Jamaican-born - who both scored in their side's 3-1 quarter-final victory in the FA Cup last Saturday.

Both will have their tasks well cut out with the Sao Paulo team including players such as Muller, Careca, and Silas - some of Brazil's stars at last year's World Cup.

Ticket sales are reportedly high and a packed national stadium on Port of Spain's outskirts is expected to watch the match.

The match was organised by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association whose patron for the last 15 years was Clarke, who will be succeeded in the nation's highest office on Thursday by Noor Hassanali.
