He later played for West Ham United on two separate occasions (receiving an FA Cup Runner-up medal during his second term in 2006) and also for Portsmouth (where he won the 1st Division in 2002/03). Hislop was eligible to play for both England and Trinidad and Tobago. He initially played for the England U-21 team and was on the bench for a full International against Chile, but in the end opted to play for Trinidad and Tobago. A dispute with the national team ruled him out of contention for several years, but he returned to play and starred in the country's first ever World Cup appearance in 2006. Hislop is now working for sports news and broadcasting service ESPN where he is most often seen as a commentator on ESPN FC. He also regularly provides commentary on Eredivisie, Serie A, and Mexican Liga MX matches. He had also briefly worked as a goalkeeping coach for the football team at Quinnipiac University. (en)
