Their trip to Tromso may be quite
an enjoyable experience but over
the chessboard their journey is
likely to be quite heartbreaking.
DR simply repeats his view; that
until our female players become
strong enough to begin winning
open tournaments at home they
should be spared the humiliation
of the World Chess Olympiad.
The team: WCM Javanna
Smith, Aditi Soondarsingh,
Gabriella Johnson, Najarah

Still we wish them well.
Finally, after 19 years under Kir-

Trinidad and Tobago
host the semi-final
round of the Caribbean
Cup qualifiers, national
team head coach
Stephen Hart wants his
players to earn the right
to make into his final
team. Not because
you ve earned an invi-
tation to train with the
squad means you can simply think
you re going to wear the national shirt
on the field of battle. That s what Hart
Saying that it was his message to the
players after the two matches against
Argentina and Iran, Hart feels that his
men would have had a better under-
standing of their responsibilities fol-
lowing the South America trip.
"I spoke to these players individually
and said to them that they have to come
into the squad and train in a particular
way and accept roles and responsibilities
and basically they have to earn their
selection," Hart said.
"Not because I brought them into the
squad means I need to play them. I
already showed confidence in them by
selecting them in the 22-man squad
and it's now up to them to fight their
way onto the pitch and they have now
sort of now realizing that. They are not
willing to accept being number 14 or
number 16 players.
"It is very important for them to come
to a camp like the one we had in Argenti-
na and Brazil and be in this kind of sit-
uation and t realize they have to earn
it," he added.
Hart is encouraged by the commit-
ment and level of discipline and play
shown by the country's overseas-based
players and feels it will benefit the coun-
try for more players to make the tran-
sition to higher standards of professional
football on the outside.
"We're seeing players in our country
with the ability, getting a good start and
showing the potential to make it out
there. It's important that we continue
to get players moving on to higher
"The players have to come into the
national team definitely at a high inter-
national fitness standard. The must fight
every living minute and when they get
on... take their opportunity," he said.

CONCACAF President calls for more
support for T&T and Jamaica
The cry for more financial support
for football is now common between
Caribbean giants Jamaica and T&T. This
was made clear in Kingston earlier this
week as CONCACAF President Jeffrey
Webb visited that country and spoke to
the press alongside Jamaica football
president Horace Burrell.
Burrell spoke of the urgent need for
increased support from corporate
Jamaica, comparisons were made with
T&T and reference to the
fact that when Jamaica
and T&T qualified for
the 1998 and 2006
World Cups, there was a
feeling that they were
closing the gap on the
bigger teams in the Con-
federation like Mexico,
USA and Costa Rica.
That thought was dif-
ferent in Kingston on
Monday. Webb said that
government and private
sector must step in more
aggressively to support the various strug-
gling associations and federations. "We
are all taxpayers in our countries. We
all contribute to the Government. Foot-
ball contributes to the Government.
Football should have a say and should
be able to demand their rightful place,"
said Webb, who is also a FIFA vice-
president. He added that various stake-
holders in the Caribbean countries have
to be sold on the idea of investing in
youth development and also on improv-
ing facilities to match the progress in
other CONCACAF countries.
"Two years ago we started and said
we wanted to rebuild the confederation
based on trust and based on integrity
and transparency. Continuing from that,
the key stakeholders for football in the
region are governments and the private
sector. We hosted a sports summit,
which for the first time brought together
the collaboration of the governments
and the presidents of the football asso-
"There must be a coordinated effort,
and that effort must be built on trust.
There is a lot of mistrust throughout
the region from governments to national
associations and so forth."
A Gold Cup in the Caribbean?
The CONCACAF Gold Cup could
well be hosted in the Caribbean some-
time within the next decade. That's the
hint coming from CONCACAF President
Jeff Webb as he spoke to reporters in
Kingston on Monday during a visit to
Jamaica. The Gold Cup has maintained
a place in the United States and was
hosted once by Mexico.
But making reference to the improve-
ment in infrastructure in countries like
Costa Rica and T&T, Webb said he
intended to bring the showcase tour-
nament to the islands.
"We must start to expand the Gold
Cup. What it is going to do is force gov-
ernments to improve their infrastructure
within the countries. From a future
standpoint that's definitely in our plans,"
Webb said. The Gold Cup is held every
two years and Webb is confident that
the tournament could be held simulta-
neously in all three regions.
T&T will begin its quest to qualify
for the 2015 Gold Cup with matches at
the semi-final round of the Caribbean
Cup in T&T in September. The
Caribbean Cup Finals takes place in
Montego Bay in November from which
the top four teams will advance to the
next Gold Cup.
