[WORLD CUP WATCH] The long road to South Africa began in CONCACAF on Sunday with a surprise as Cayman Islands tied Bermuda, 1-1, in Hamilton. The attention of U.S. fans will be focused on the match Wednesday in Roseau, where Dominica hosts Barbados at Windsor Park.

Barbados is heavily favored in the first-round series whose winner will face the USA in June but the Bajans will be without most of their foreign-based players. The one newcomer in the Barbados squad is Jon Nurse of fourth-level English club Dagenham & Redbridge.

Neil Harvey
plays in the Unibond First Division South, the eighth level of English soccer, for Retford United, while Barry Skeete returned after two years in the Argentine Third Division with Colegiales. Reveire Williams and Dwayne McClean have been training in Argentina.

Four other English-based players were not released, while Paul Ifill of Crystal Palace is injured.

Dominica has never beaten Barbados in five meetings. The Bajans won, 5-0, when the teams last met in 2006.

Goalkeepers -- Alvin Rouse (Galway United/Ireland), Kerry Holder (Barbados Defence Force).
Defenders -- Rommell Brathwaite (Kola Tonic Notre Dame), Dwight James (Kola Tonic Notre Dame), Barry Skeete (Barbados Defence Force), Jonathan Straker (Barbados Defence Force), Bryan Neblett (Notre Dame), Rohan Hall (Barbados Defence Force).
