D.C.: San Salvador's Northern District

As we told you earlier today, FIFA and CONCACAF have been searching for a new site for the El Salvador-Anguilla World Cup qualifier on March 26 because Anguilla does not have a stadium that meets international requirements. We also told you that Washington's RFK Stadium was under consideration. Now, word out of Zurich is that FIFA has approved RFK as the site. Truly bizarre. It is supposed to be an Anguilla home match in the two-leg series, but with 13,677 residents in the island nation, there's a pretty good chance there will be more Salvadoran fans at RFK than the entire population of Anguilla. A source close to the situation tells me that Los Angeles and Houston were also considered, and final details for RFK to host are being worked out this week.
