Warner: Caribbean team must be in Brazil

Warner: Caribbean team must be in Brazil
By Ian Prescott (T&T Express)

 
"By 2014, a team from the CFU must be in Brazil,," FIFA vice-president and Caribbean Football Union (CFU) president Jack Warner declared yesterday, referring to the Caribbean region's ambition to have a qualifier for the 2014 FIFA World Cup to be played in Brazil.

Warner's comments came at yesterday's Caribbean Football Union Congress in Montego Bay, Jamaica, where the CONCACAF Under-17 Boys' Championship is being contested.

He challenged the region to produce World Cup qualifiers at all levels.

"A team from the CFU must be at the next FIFA Under-20 Men's and Women's World Cup. As we now play to qualify, a team from the CFU must be at the Under-17 Men's World Cup in Mexico."

Warner's comments came just ahead of yesterday's CONCACAF Under-17 World Cup qualifier between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica, the Caribbean's main contenders for a spot in the Under-17 World Cup, which takes place in Mexico this summer.

Warner chided the region for not producing results. And he said the intention of this critique was to sober Caribbean countries into developing strategic mechanisms to produce results.

"In spite of the training courses, programmes and seminars funded by the FIFA and the CONCACAF, in spite of the FIFA grants received--each of you received over $1.3 million in the last four years--your teams still remain the whipping boys and girls of the CONCACAF Confederation and the message I am here to deliver today at this, the 34th Congress of the Caribbean Football Union, is let's shift the paradigm and bring glory to the CFU."

In 48 years Caribbean teams have won the CONCACAF Champions Cup--which has developed into the CONCACAF Champions League–just twice, the last being Trinidad and Tobago's Defence Force in 1985. And in the 20-year history of the CONCACAF Women's Championship, a team from the Caribbean Football Union has never placed in the top two.

Trinidad and Tobago are the best finishers so far, coming third at the 1991 CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup.

like jack have a reserved spot for we or what? Jack we have to earn it.


In 48 years Caribbean teams have won the CONCACAF Champions Cup--which has developed into the CONCACAF Champions League–just twice. Not quite true. TT twice, Haiti twice and Suriname twice. Actually, if this is any  consolation. Caribbeans teams have been in the finals 15 times. I am counting Suriname and the teams from Curacao.

Make sure. Jackula don't put T&T in the same group as Jamaica. ;D

Proposed Format

In May 2010, the CONCACAF Executive Committee announced a proposed change in its qualifying format for the 2014 World Cup, which would start with a preliminary knockout stage followed by three group phases.[1]

Preliminary round (if needed) to trim the number of teams to 32.
8 groups of 4 teams. Top two in each group through to the next round.
4 groups of 4 teams. Top two in each group through to the next round.
2 groups of 4 teams. If CONCACAF will have 3.5 spots, the winners of the groups will qualify directly to the World Cup, while the second placed teams will play-off against each other first, and the winner will qualify, while the loser may play-off a team from another confederation in November 2013
If CONCACAF's allocation is increased to 4 direct spots, the top two teams in each group will qualify for the World Cup.
