Webb had a golden time

LONDON – Jeffrey Webb, recently elected President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, is thoroughly enjoying his Olympic experience. 

On Friday Webb said: “The Olympics has been fantastic. There are four CONCACAF countries in the tournament and they have all done well. 

“The USA won the women’s football gold medal for the fourth time. Canada won the bronze. So the two teams from our confederation did exceptionally well.  

“Now Mexico play Brazil in the men’s final, so for six medals in the entire world CONCACAF will claim three, which is tremendous.  

“Also, the overall standard of Olympic football was very high. I was very impressed with Honduras who is a team to be reckoned with.  

“They lost closely to Brazil and I think Honduras have a big future. From the four teams that represented CONCACAF I want to congratulate them. They have been tremendous ambassadors for the confederation.” 

CONCACAF’s next involvement in a big tournament is the women’s Under-20 World Cup in Japan. The confederation’s restructuring will continue through the new General-Secretary, Enrique Sanz.  

Webb also wants to concentrate on educating players and coaches and development programmes.

  1. What about your own backyard of the Cayman Islands, Mr. Webb ?

    Whats happening there in the world of football development that you’re so highly touting and promoting ?

    Cayman’s Olympians and track athletes are moving ahead rapidly in world sport…and they don’t have the head and presidency of a major sporting organization based in Cayman to assist them.

    While you rightfully laud the achievemnts of your football neighbours Honduras…and Mexico, who I saw as potential tournament gold medal winners from their first match…and which they duly became…

    What are you doing for football in the Cayman Islands ?
