    Give me a flipping break, of all that the football association requires for growth and development you mean that’s the best de ambassador could deliver for dominica?

    Wasn’t there some dialogue with the football association to discuss the best interest of football?
    Boy, we sure settle for crumbs yet take photos to make ourselves look important.

    Shame on the football association and the ambassador.
