(Ed. Note: Patience. The committee will now “commence the process of selecting a head-coach.” They say, “better late than never;” but we’re very late in preparing for this big international tournament. How big? Below we print some information from Wikipedia on the Copa Centroamericana, and in our weekend issue a concacaf.com article on the Gold Cup, for which the Copa Centroamericana is a qualifier.)
2013 Copa Centroamericana
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 2013 Copa Centroamericana (English: 2013 Central American Cup) will be the twelfth edition of the competition formerly known as UNCAF Nations Cup. The tournament is organised for the CONCACAF-affiliated national teams of Central America. It will be hosted by Costa Rica. The top five teams from this tournament will qualify for the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The group stage will be determined in the near future. Honduras is the defending champion.
All seven UNCAF members are participating in the tournament: Belize, Costa Rica, Colombia (Invite), El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
