    Since when does a team participate in a sporting event to feel like a third place finish feels like a victory? Only in Dominca. Winning, meaning winning the 1st place prize is the goal of all teams which compete, unless they state otherwise from the beginning. The stated objective of the Dominca team from before the start of the tournament was to win their division, now a third place finish is the goal. Does the football association have a medium and long term plan for national football in Dominca? If they do then they need to keep pointing to their strategic plan and stop talking foolishness. Third place finish is not a victory.
