“Defence and speed are the best things we have,” says team manager Gabriel Flota. However, “the team is still young and lacks competition at an international level.”
The hosts will meet Haiti and St. Kitts and Nevis in Group C and even though, according to Flota, their preliminary group seems to be the weakest, he states that they cannot take anything for granted.
The hosts have high hopes for the first Men’s North America and the Caribbean Emerging Nations Championship and since November, they have had two training sessions per day.
“Our goal is to reach the finals and to exhibit the trophy to all fans from Dominican Republic,” Flota claims full of hope.
