National coach sees opportunities for Curaçao for WC 2022

BicentiniWILLEMSTAD - Remko Bicentini, national coach of the national soccer team of Curaçao, sees the island playing football during the FIFA World Cup 2022, in Qatar.

"In 2026 the rules for the world championships will change, allowing more countries to participate in the tournament," says Bicentini. The organizing countries are now looking into whether this is already possible in 2022. "That is in favor of Curaçao. If there is a chance of participation, it might be in Qatar. "

The Curaçao players will go for it, they try to extract everything from the short period that they are allowed to play professional soccer," says Bicentini. "If you look at the progression of the past two years: becoming a Caribbean champion, participating in the Gold Cup - for us that meant playing at the level of the World Cup. And we have performed well despite a loss."
