Quote:Five Cuban players missing

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Five Cuban soccer players went missing Tuesday night after the under-23 team played a key match against the United States, a team official said Wednesday.

The missing men had not yet reported to authorities.

Zachary Mann, a spokesman for Customs and Border Protection, said it's unlikely the agency will learn the men's whereabouts until they come forward.

Under the United States' "wet foot, dry foot" policy, Cubans who reach U.S. soil are allowed to remain in the country and apply for U.S. residency after one year.

The Cuban team is in Tampa to play in qualifying games for the Beijing Olympics this August, sponsored by the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football, or CONCACAF.

A CONCACAF spokesman declined comment, saying only that the situation is under review.

The five men, including a goalie and team captain who helped Cuba tie the United States 1-1 Tuesday, are expected to be in Miami by this weekend, said Marcos Ommati, a spokesman with professional soccer team Miami FC.

He said he had not spoken with the players and did not know their whereabouts, but said he had spoken with someone who told him to expect the players.

CONCACAF and team officials did not identify the five missing players. But looking at players' jerseys Wednesday's practice revealed those who were absent: Jose Manuel Miranda, 21; Erlys Garcia Baro, Yenier Bermudez, Yordany Alvarez and Loanni Prieto, all listed as 22-year-olds.

Tampa police spokeswoman Andrea Davis said the agency had not received any missing persons reports from the team, and officers were not called to the team's hotel to investigate the disappearances.

A Cuban team leader would not discuss details and said he was most concerned about Thursday's match against Honduras.

"Tomorrow we have a very important game ... and we are concentrating on that," said Luis Hernandez, president of the Soccer Association of Cuba and the only team official to address the media.

When asked what the team planned to do without the players, Hernandez said, "Win -- with the five, without the five -- win."

With the exception of 'Q’, why is it Westerners rarely have the desire to live in a Third World country?
They are 'brain dead' of course. What person in their right mind would want to leave a worker's paradise, with free healthcare too, for such a terrible place as the US? Wink1
No kidding. Aren't there lots of documents pertaining to Americans fleeing the USA and going to live in socialist regions?

Don't lots of those blacks in Obama's Church intend to flee and live in one of the African Islamic states or maybe Zimbabwe where socialism rules?

It just has to be doesn't it? Don't we need to build some walls to keep us in ?
No, those were just Clinton witnesses fleeing prosecution.
That's what it was,the Clinton's fleeing prosecution with their stolen WH furniture!

I hope so much your brain is ok, but have justified doubts. While seven Cubans stay in the US, I daresay a far greater number of Americans gone abroad the same day will not come back either.

Like you were forced to do "Q"? 8)
Yep. By the absence of socialism and the reluctance to contribute anything to a Germany I no longer like and regard as home. Took a couple of years to realise what I lost, and I idiot even had a hand in it.
Can you tell me why there are all sorts of statistics about immigration to the US, but none about emigration? Wink1

That's because there is SO little of it. Tells you something, doesn't it? Wink1

There is probably more of it than we know. I know one person on another forum who moved down to Mexico after retiring.

There's lots of it, according to the many Americans who moved here. More than Germans. I guess your authorities just have no clue, heared somewhere you're not registered the way we are. What's basically not a bad thing.
I have seriously considered moving away from the USA. Both my bosses are seriously considering it. It's an opposite of Mexican immigration thing,we do not need jobs,we want to cause our life savings to double overnight.

Mexico is likely my destination. I'd say the odds are 50-50% I will retire in Mexico.

Hmph.

I'd like to hear why, but then I realized that we'd probably be better off without most of them anyways.

Sort of like the draft dodgers and spoiled brats of the 60s who went to live in Sweden or Canada b/c they couldn't get the lunacy they wanted.

Garbage.
