Nations Cup is a biennial football tournament, held for the CONCACAF national teams of Central America (Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama).The tournament started in 1991 and it doubles as a qualifying event for the Gold cup. The Nations Cup is rotated amoungst the 7 nations so no one nation has an advantage. It also creates interest around the area. The host nation is always placed in the easiest group. The thinking here is the desire to have the host nation advance to keep the interest of the host nations fans. Last year El Salvador hosted and were placed with Nicaragua, Belize and Guatemala. The power teams of Central America (Costa Rica, Panama and Honduras) had to fight for 2 spots to advance. This tournament always creates an odd group of 3 teams in the preliminary group stage. I think it is time to add a team that would complete the odd group. The problem is who do you add. You do not want a team like Brazil that would dominate the tournament at one end and you do not want a team that would be cannon fodder either. You want a team that is equally as good as the top Central American powers. A team that would create interest and enhance the tournament. A team that could become a rival to some of the Central America nations. They do not have to look any further than the Caribbean nations. The top teams in the Caribbean can compete with the top teams in Central America. The Caribbean Cup crowns the Caribbean Champion bi-annually and UNCAF could have the Caribbean Champion play in the UNCAF Cup. Haiti was the Caribbean Champion in 2005 and they could fit the bill. The action would create 2 groups for 4 nations. You would not have the odd group of 3 nations. The Caribbean Champion would not dominate the tourney but they certanly could compete for the Title as well. This would also create bragging rights between the two CONCACAF regions. Each region believe they have better teams that the other. This action would enhance the tournament with the Caribbean Champion. It would also create interest and more exposure in both Central America and the Caribbean.
