Cuba and Dominican Republic take the leadership in Soccer for the Caribbean

Do not let yourself fouled by the recent performance of the Haitian Soccer team, the days of great Haitian soccer seem to be well behind us. Haiti is unable to give birth to people like Emmanuel Sanon, Phillippe Vorbe, Ernst Jean-Joseph, Henry Francillon, Arsene Auguste, Pierre Bayonne, Roger Saint-Vil, just to name a few.


You may think that I am dreaming but the reality is that what we were so good at doing in the past just stays in the past.

We were the number one in soccer for the Caribbean

With sadness, I am announcing that this will never happen again. This position of being king in the Caribbean as far as soccer is concerned has slipped away from our hands.

According to the latest FIFA/Coca-Cola World Rankings in soccer, Cuba is now the new Caribbean king in soccer. It is now ranked 74th in the world, just ahead of Sierra Leone and tied with the United Arab Emirates.

That is not all. More shockingly, The Dominican Republic is ranked ahead of former leaders such as Jamaica and Haiti, rising to number 78th in the world.

You either did not hear or understand me! Let me repeat this again:

Not in Baseball! but in Soccer, Dominican Republic ranked ahead of Haiti!

Should I say more?
