The Barbados Football Association (BFA) yesterday scored its biggest goal for the year after a meeting with the president of the Argentine Football Association (AFA), Claudio Tapia.
President of the BFA Randy Harris and Argentine Ambassador to Barbados Gustavo Martinez Pandiani, made a courtesy call on Tapia at the AFA’s Buenos Aries headquarters.
The meeting was scheduled as part of the itinerary of the Barbados Under-17 national team delegation, currently on a week-long visit at Boca Juniors, one of Argentina’s most famous clubs.
Following a short closed door meeting, Tapia told NATION SPORT it was the starting point of a great relationship.
“This is a very important meeting for our association. I think is a starting point for the cooperation of the two associations. We will contribute the resources that we have to the Federation of Barbados not only in sports but also in cultural terms,” he pledged. (RA)
