Dominican Republic faces Bermuda

The senior women’s national team will hold a match this Friday against Bermuda from 7:00 pm at the Felix Sanchez Olympic Stadium.

The match corresponds to the third day of the CONCACAF Women’s Qualifiers on the road to the Australia-New Zealand 2023 World Cup and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The national team held a gym session on Wednesday and Thursday at the Felix Sanchez Stadium with the 22 players who were called up to face Bermuda on Friday at home and Jamaica next Tuesday in Kingston.

The last-minute novelty was the inclusion of midfielder Maia Cabrera, replacing Manuela Lareo, who began to present physical problems in one of her knees, according to her club, RCD Espanyol of women’s soccer in Spain. Cabrera made her debut with Sedofútbol in July 2021 during the friendly triangular match against Panama and Nicaragua in Panama City.

The team coached by Spaniard Beni Rubido has worked properly to face these two duels that could be of weight in the history of national soccer. If the DR wins against Bermuda on Friday, it would have a good chance of disputing first place in the group against Jamaica four days later.

The next stage of the competition, the CONCACAF Women’s Championship, will bring together the eight best national teams from North, Central America and the Caribbean to compete for the four direct tickets and two tickets to the intercontinental playoff for the 2023 FIFA World Cup Australia-New Zealand.

Likewise, one direct ticket and two playoff tickets for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games and for the 2024 Gold Cup in its first women’s version are also up for grabs.
