Road to the WC 2010

Taken from BigSoccer -> link

Translated from Panama FA website :


The Organizing Committee of the FIFA World Cup has formally ratified the
format of competition proposed by the Confederations, in this case CONCACAF,
for qualifying for the World Cup South Africa 2010.

The competition will begin in February of 2008 and will end in November of
2009. The draw will be held in Durban (South Africa) on 25 November 2007,
where the rival of Panama for the second qualifying round of CONCACAF will be
known.

The 35 participating member associations of CONCACAF are seeded on the basis of
the FIFA rankings of May 2007, where PANAMA is number 5 on the list behind
Mexico, the United States, Costa Rica and Honduras.

According to the competition format, the first round will consist of the 23
participating member associations in positions 13 to 35. The round consists of
11 home-and-away series of matches, while St. Vincent and the Grenadines have
a bye. The winners and St. Vincent and the Grenadines advance to the second
round.

For the second round, the 11 first round winners and St. Vincent and the
Grenadines will be matched against the remaining 12 participating member
associations, among them PANAMA.

The 24 teams will match up in 12 home-and-away series, where the winners will
advance to the Third Round.

The 12 winners will be grouped in the Third Round in three (3) groups of four
(4) teams that will play home and away round-robin against everyone.

The group winners and runners-up advance to the Fourth Round or Hexagonal
Final, where the six teams will form a group that will play home and away
round-robin against everyone.

The best three (3) teams of the Hexagonal Final qualify for the FIFA World
Cup South Africa 2010. The team in the fourth position will play a
home-and-away playoff with the fifth-place team in the South American zone.

http://www.fepafut.com/noticiasdetail.asp?id=939


The 12 teams with a bye to the 2nd round are not the 12 semifinal round teams from last cycle, but the top 12 teams in the May FIFA rankings:

1. Mexico
2. USA
3. Costa Rica
4. Honduras
5. Panama
6. T&T
7. Jamaica
8. Cuba
9. Haiti
10. Guatemala
11. Canada
12. Guyana

#13 St. Vincent & the G's also gets a bye but must play one of the top 12 teams.

First Round, Leg 1 Results:

Bermuda 1-1 Cayman Islands
Belize 3-1 St. Kitts and Nevis
Nicaragua 0-1 Netherlands Antilles
Dominica 1-1 Barbados
El Salvador 12-0 Anguilla
Turks and Caicos Islands 2-1 St. Lucia
Aruba 0-3 Antigua and Barbuda

The return legs of these matches as well as the one-leg matches in the First Round (Greneda-US Virgin Islands, Montserrat-Suriname, Puerto Rico-Dominican Republic) will all be played on March 26, with the exception of Cayman Islands-Bermuda on March 30. Anguilla-El Salvador will be played in Washington, D.C. (A bit unfair to the poor Anguillas considering it will basically be another home match for El Salvador - Washington has one of the highest Salvadoran populations in the US). The two legs of Bahamas-British Virgin Islands will be played on March 26 and March 30, both in Nassau.

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

World’s worst in action in CONCACAF qualifying


RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters)

- Three of the worst international teams will attempt unlikely wins in CONCACAF World Cup qualifying on Wednesday.

Montserrat meet Surinam in a one-off preliminary round encounter that will be played in Trinidad & Tobago as neither country has a stadium considered suitable by governing body FIFA.

U.S. Virgin Islands visit Grenada in another one-off tie while Aruba try to overturn a 3-0 first leg deficit when they travel to Antigua & Barbuda for their return match.

Montserrat, U.S. Virgin Islands and Aruba are joint 202nd and last in the FIFA rankings, sharing the dubious honor with American Samoa, Guam and East Timor.

CONCACAF’s lowest ranked teams are involved in the preliminary round while the higher-ranked sides such as U.S., Mexico and Honduras have a bye to the second round in June.

The U.S. will play Barbados or Dominica who meet in Bridgetown on Wednesday after drawing their first match 1-1.

St Kitts & Nevis need to overturn a 3-1 deficit at home to Belize to earn the right to meet Mexico.

VOLCANIC ERUPTION

Running Montserrat’s team has become a complicated exercise since the 1995 volcanic eruption which forced more than half the island’s people to move abroad.

The eruption buried the capital Plymouth and reduced the population from 12,000 to 4,700.

“Most of our players are over in England as refugees,” assistant coach Cecil Lake told FIFA’s Web site (www.fifa.com). “We still have a few players left here on the island but most had to leave.

“We maintain a database though so we know pretty much where everyone is.”

The English contingent include two semi-professionals, Junior Mendes of Conference side (fifth division) Aldershot Town and midfielder Wayne Dyer of Northern Premier League (seventh division) Hednesford Town.

Dyer scored Montserrat’s maiden World Cup goal in a 3-1 defeat by Dominican Republic in 2000.

Opponents Surinam also export plenty of talent, mainly to Netherlands where they have more than 100 professionals.

A win would earn Surinam a two-leg tie against neighbors Guyana.

Aruba, coached by Argentine Marcelo Munoz, have not won a game for eight years and with a team based entirely on players from the local amateur league are not expected to trouble Antigua in St John’s.

Cuba await the winners.

Grenada are likely to dispatch U.S. Virgin Islands in another one-off tie to clinch a meeting with Costa Rica.

Anguilla will attempt to keep the score respectable in Washington against El Salvador, the only one of the teams in action on Wednesday who have played at a World Cup, after losing the first leg 12-0.

Venezuela ties Honduras 1-1 with late penalty kick

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP)—

Venezuela scored on a late penalty kick to earn a 1-1 tie with Honduras in front of 15,000 mostly Honduran fans Friday night at Lockhart Stadium.

After playing from behind most of the match, Venezuela finally tied the game when Giancarlo Maldonado was taken down in the box, resulting in a penalty kick. Maldonado converted the penalty kick in the 77th minute.

Sergio Mendoza gave Honduras the lead in the second minute of the match, putting a shot past Venezuelan goalkeeper Leonardo Morales from inside the box. He was assisted by Julio Cesar Leon.

Honduras had another early scoring chance in the fifth minute when Wilson Palacios had a point-blank shot, only to have it turned away by Morales.

Venezuela’s best scoring chance of the first half came in the 17th minute when Honduran goalkeeper Noel Valladares made a diving save to turn away a shot by Maldonado.

Guatemala, El Salvador play to 0-0 tie

WASHINGTON (AP)—

El Salvador goalkeeper Miguel Montes made nine saves to help his team to a scoreless tie with Guatemala in an international exhibition match Friday night.

In front of 38,759 fans at RFK Stadium, Montes proved to be the difference in a physical match that saw three yellow cards given out.

The first scoring opportunity came for El Salvador in the 7th minute when Guatemala goalie Luis Molina failed to beat El Salvador striker Rudis Corrales to a cross. Corrales ricocheted the ball past Molina, but could only find the outside of the net.

In the 31st minute, Guatemala came close to breaking the deadlock on perhaps the best opportunity of the match, when striker Mario Rodriguez headed a corner kick off the near post and almost in before Montes swatted it off the goal line.

Montes capped off his performance in the 92nd minute, robbing Guatemalan midfielder Abner Trigueros from 8 yards out with a sprawling save at the near post.

Visits of Brazil and England headline CONCACAF friendlies

5/29/2008

- Five CONCACAF nations will be involved in international friendly action this coming weekend as preparations for the second stage of World Cup Qualifying hit high gear. In this latest round of matches, two high-profile teams will be making visits to the CONCACAF Confederation. Brazil face Canada at Qwest Field in Seattle (USA), while England travel to the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain to face Trinidad & Tobago in a reprise of their 2006 FIFA World Cup ™ group game clash. The match will also be part of the one hundred year anniversary celebrations for the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association.

In an all CONCACAF clash, El Salvador will take on Guatemala at RFK Stadium in Washington D.C., USA. This will be the second time in a matter of months that the Cuscatlecos have played a game at RFK Stadium. The first came just two months ago and was the second (away) leg of their World Cup qualifying tie with Anguilla – a game El Salvador won 4:0. The two Central American rivals last met during the group stages of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup™ at the Home Depot Center in Carson, California in a closely contested affair that finished 1:0 to the Chapines with José Manuel Contreras scoring the only goal of the game.

With the World Cup Qualifying game just around the corner (4 June) Honduras will wrap up their World Cup qualifying preparations with a game against CONMEBOL opponents Venezuela – hosts of the 2007 Copa America. La Vinotinto will be looking to snap a two game losing streak following defeats by Colombia (5:2) and Bolivia (0:1) while Honduras will hope to continue their fine recent form (six straight wins and an overall unbeaten streak of seven matches). Both teams will be involved in World Cup Qualifying action next month with Honduras hosting Puerto Rico on Wednesday (4 June) while Venezuela travel to Montevideo for a tricky encounter with Uruguay. The two nations last played almost exactly a year ago in Merida, Venezuela – a game the hosts won 2:1.

The five-time World Cup Champions Brazil will play the Maple Leafs at Seattle’s Qwest Field. This will be just the fourth time the two nations have played each other - the most recent encounter being a 0:0 draw during the 2001 FIFA Confederations Cup. Canada’s head coach Dale Mitchell is aware of the prestigious nature of the friendly but is keeping both eyes on the bigger picture. “Our first game against Brazil will be a big occasion, but both matches (including the 4 June friendly with Panama) will be invaluable in helping us to assess and prepare for our main focus, which is the qualifying process that begins next month against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.”

Finally, Trinidad & Tobago will host England on Sunday, 1 June. A key element of the centenary celebrations for the Caribbean nation, the game will be only the second time the two countries have met. As FIFA Vice-President and CONCACAF President, Jack Warner, points out: “There is a historical nexus between England the T&TFF (Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation)…it would not be the same if it were Brazil or Italy or Germany.” The link Warner refers to is Thomas Boyd, an Englishman who was the first ever president of the T&TFF.

Costa Rica-Grenada shouldn't be much of a problem, but knowing Costa Rica and seeing all the pessimism around our NT, I'm afraid. Ironically I think we have a fine group of players (except for one of our CD's who was never NT material, is totally slow, and 34 years old), but they have had a lot of trouble playing as a team.

Panama-El Salvador is more level game, I'm really surprised, considering there's Antigua & Barbuda vs Cuba. Panama is better than El Salvador, they are more physical and have better players overall. I hope that they become the nice surprise of the qualifiers.

I hate it when all the Caribbean teams (well Belize is technically from central america) prefer to give their home advantage and play in the US which is basically like playing in Mexico (specially if they are playing in Texas).

Costa Rica came back to win 2-2, good comeback, but must be disappointing for Grenada. Grenada have some pretty solid players though like Jason Roberts and Shalrie Joseph. Suriname was the underdog against Guyana, so it should be a bit of an upset for them.

Scores for today:

Puerto Rico 2-2 Honduras (Honduras advances 6-2 on aggregate - all other games were first leg games)
Grenada 2-2 Costa Rica
Suriname 1-0 Guyana
Guatemala 6-0 St. Lucia

Tomorrow's games:
USA-Barbados
St. Vincent-Canada
Haiti-Netherlands Antilles
Belize-Mexico
Panama-El Salvador
Trinidad and Tobago-Bermuda
Jamaica-Bahamas

On Tuesday:
Antigua and Barbuda-Cuba

Should be handy wins for USA, Mexico, Trinidad, Jamaica, Cuba, and probably Canada, though St. Vincent are one of the better island sides. Panama are seemingly favorites against El Salvador, but it should be a close one, as well as Haiti-Netherlands Antilles. Again, hosts are favorites, but don't count the Netherlands Antilles out, they are fairly improved.

The remaining return legs will be played in a week's time, June 18-22.

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

NWO BABY

Sunday's Results:

St. Vincent 0-3 Canada
Haiti 0-0 Netherlands Antilles
Belize 0-2 Mexico
Panama 1-0 El Salvador
USA 8-0 Barbados
Trinidad & Tobago 1-2 Bermuda

Jamaica-Bahamas later tonight I think.

The obvious upset here is Bermuda's victory over T&T. I doubt the Bermudans will get very far even if they beat T&T, who have been a mess since the last World Cup. Panama-El Salvador and Haiti-Netherlands Antilles are the only other ones I can see having an important return leg. Mexico was less than impressive against Belize but should have no problems after winning 2-0 'away'. (The game was played in Houston.)

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

I was able to see the Costa Rica's game on delay (after hearing it on the radio yesterday, I thought we were 100% outplayed, and that Grenada played samba football with us), it was a normal game for Costa Rica in the Caribbean. Grenada was pretty good, well organized, maybe a little naive, but they were good. But the great part is, we are going to kick out our coach when the second leg is played next Saturday. Applauses for the most dumb decision ever. Costa Rica's biggest problem remains the press (who are just for the negative thoughts) and the stupid fans the buy everything the press tells them.

Panama is on a lot of trouble for their next game. They will play in El Salvador's stadium, which will probably be full, and knowing how things are in central america, it's gonna be hostile. Don't know how the game went.

Mexico's result is probably more embarrasing than Costa Rica's (at least we didn't play in neutral/home field), specially since they were talking about going double digits against Belize.

Cuba defeats Antigua 4-3 in World Cup qualifier

ST. JOHN’S, Antigua (AP)

—Cuba gained a 4-3 victory at Antigua and Barbuda on Tuesday night in the first leg of a World Cup qualifier that likely will determine a U.S. opponent in the regional semifinals.

Second-half substitute Leonel Pla scored a tiebreaking goal in the 85th minute for Cuba, which hosts Antigua on Sunday in the second leg of the total-goals series. Jaine Valencia (10th and 74th minutes), and Yoel Colome (22nd) also scored for the Cubans.

Kerry Skepple (ninth and 13th minutes) and Tylo Simon (81st) scored for underdog Antigua.

The United States defeated Barbados 8-0 at home Sunday in the first leg of its series and plays at Barbados this Sunday. Two other teams will join the semifinal group, with Guatemala taking a 6-0 lead into its second leg against St. Lucia, which will be played in Los Angeles, and Trinidad and Tobago trying to overcome a 2-1 deficit when it travels to Bermuda.
