Webb and Biden talk World Cup

Like
the rest of the world, Cayman is steeped in following the 2010 World Cup in
South Africa. At the same time Cayman’s football association continues to make
news.

Over
the weekend Cayman Islands Football Association President Jeffrey Webb greeted
the United States Vice President Joe Biden in Johannesburg, South Africa. For
the record Webb is a member of the FIFA World Cup organising committee.

Undoubtedly
a topic of conversation for the two was the presence of the US national
football team. So far in South Africa, Landon Donovan and company have flooded
headlines. From inciting the attention of the US media and public towards
football to pulling off a remarkable 1-1 draw with powerhouse England (which
was a combination of US player Clint Dempsey’s guts and England keeper Robert
Green’s folly), the Americans have been an attraction on the field.

Webb continues to put
Cayman on the radar of foreign dignitaries at the sports spectacle. Days ago he
spoke with celebrated England mid-fielder and Ambassador David Beckham (who is
not playing for the Three Lions in this year’s tournament). At that time Webb
passed on his (and by extension Cayman’s) support of England’s 2018 World Cup
bid.
