Finally getting some reactions from Federation presidents (translated)... Gerardo Paiz (GUA): I really don't know who made that decision. I can tell you that we only get notifications from Concacaf. I have only been at the head of the Federation for a month, so I imagine that decision was made in a Concacaf Congress. Yves Jean-Bart (HAI): We feel discriminated against in this decision. Manuel Arias (PAN): I didn't know anything about Concacaf making this change until this past weekend. Pedro Chaluja (former head, PAN): These changes were made back in 2017, that making the Hex would depend on FIFA rankings.
