Local footballers at home for last game of world cup

| 14/11/2011

(CNS): With Cayman at the bottom of its World Cup qualifying group, any dreams of making it to the international football tournament were long dashed, but the team has a final chance to regain some pride and at least score against the Dominican Republic when the teams meet again, this time on Cayman’s home turf this evening (Monday 14 November). The most recent game between the teams saw the Dominican Republic placed above Suriname at the top of Group A in the North, Central America and Caribbean Qualifying stage for the 2014 Cup with its 4-0 win. Cayman sits bottom of the group without a point, conceding 14 goals and scoring just one.

Cayman will play this final World Cup qualifying game against the Dominican Republic in the return leg at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex with kick-off at 7:30. Tickets for this game will be on sale on the day of the game from 2pm at the Field of Dreams priced at $15 for Adults and $5 for Children under 12.

    If Caymanian football had developed naturally, along the lines for football globally, the Cayman Islands should have been in a position to compete with the Dominican Republic and even Surinam, who are not the football power they once were when the majority of Holland's players came from Surinamese heritage, including the great Ruud Gullitt, Frank Rijkaard, Stanley Menzo, Clarence Seedhorf and a host of others.

    Instead, the leaders of football in Cayman has used the game and players for their own ends and football, as the rest of the world knows and plays it, died a natural death in Cayman a long time ago.

    There is not even the pride of being a good footballer left in Cayman anymore.

    Good job coach. Thats what havbing 5-7 defenders on a feild will get you. Your strategy obviously doesn't work so change it up and use the best one for the team… quit and be replaced.

      People, we need to stop blame the coach, When we had the english coach we blame him, that was the time we beat jamaica, and boast the best record standing to date, Yet we did call for him to quit,We get coach from brazil, and have the worst record then, we never hear for him to quit,. Look people the present coach sent the most players to date to overseas club to date, NO other coach had that or did that beside Winston Chung,

      The problem is deeper than any coach or the admistration, It with the local clubs not supporting the national coach, that is the problem from ever since, I know because I used to work with most of the national coach
