Dominica’s campaign in the Concacaf Nations League got off to a disappointing start as the nature island boys were held to a goalless draw with Anguilla in the opening match of the tournament at the Raymond E. G Guishard Facility in Anguilla. 

Despite dominating the game, having the bulk of possession and the majority of shots on target, Dominica could not break down the Anguillan’s stubborn defense and the game ended in a 0-0 draw.

    Population Anguilla 15,000, Dominica 70,000. Shame on us.

      The size of the population is not always a critical factor in winning a sporting contest against a smaller nation. Jamaica, a relatively small country, is like a factory for sprinters, while China, the most populous country in the world, is not nearly as good.

      There are so many factors involved in the success of a team. Expert coaching, consistent training, modern and adequate facilities, hiigh level of motivation, exposure to high level competition, and the list goes on.

      Yes, most Dominicans are disappointed with the results. However, condemning and denigrating the team is not at all helpful in anyway.
