Barbados may not have qualified for this year’s FIFA Women’s Football World Cup, which started in France yesterday, but Prime Minister Mia Mottley gave the assurance the island will have a team at the highest level in the future.
At the inaugural FIFA Women’s Convention in Paris, ahead of the first match between the host nation and South Korea, Mottley said she was optimistic of seeing Barbados reach football’s pinnacle.
“I come from a small country. We don’t have a team in women’s football this year but in the same way there was no female prime minister in Barbados before last year, we will have a women’s football team at the highest level again in this world,” the Prime Minister said to loud applause from an audience that included the top brass of the Barbados Football Association.
