New National Under-17 and 20 Women's football coach Richard Hood is already predicting difficult roads ahead for his teams, especially his U-20 players who will have to tangle with the giants of the CONCACAF region USA, Mexico and Canada, as well as emerging powerhouse Haiti for one of just two spots from the North, Central American and the Caribbean Football Federations tournament next month.
The United States, Canada and Mexico have won the right to host the 2026 World Cup after a vote of Fifa delegates in Moscow.
A joint bid by the three North American countries under the name ’United’ saw off the challenge of a rival proposal from Morocco, winning over two-thirds of the vote.
The United bid persuaded 134 of the 203 delegates eligible to vote at the 68th annual Fifa congress, which was held on the eve of the 2018 tournament in Russia.
Former T&T striker Stern John is targeting silverware in the CONCACAF Caribbean Club Championship as he renewed his committment to Central FC for the season ahead.
Along with the club, he will unveil the 20-man squad for the trip to the Dominican Republic on Friday afternoon at the Marvin Lee Stadium. The squad is expected to include former T&T standouts such as Carlyle Mitchell and Densill Theobald as well as the return of midfielders Darren Mitchell and Keron Cummings.
