    Campbell: the fire in Waterhouse

    Romario Campbell (pictured) was a key player in Waterhouse FC's run to a place in the 2014-15 CONCACAF Champions League.

    KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Romario Campbell, in his first Caribbean FU Club Championship appearance, has emerged as one of the tournament’s standout players.

    The midfielder scored two Group 2 goals last month in Mirebalais, Haiti, helping Jamaica’s Waterhouse FC book an eventual spot in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League (CCL).

    And, he’s enjoying every minute of the voyage.

    "It's a wonderful experience for me,” the former Harbour View player told CONCACAF.com.  “It was my first time playing in the Club Championships and my first time travelling to Haiti as well.  We knew what we had to do.  We had three tough matches and we adapted very well and came out with three victories.”

    Waterhouse went a perfect 3-0-0 in CFU play and outscored Inter Moengotapoe (Suriname), AS Mirebalais (Haiti) and Caledonia AIA by a combined score of 10-1.

    Campbell, who made his Jamaica debut on April, 28, 2010 in an international friendly against South Africa, said that he is already preparing for the larger challenge of playing in the CCL.

    “I have been doing some extra work, trying to get myself into the box and into better goal-scoring positions,” noted the 23-year-old.  “I am a very attacking player.  I have wonderful skills and I can pass the ball very well, but the area I lack the most is scoring goals, so I am trying to get as many goals as possible in every game I play.

    "I also hope that we can continue to play attractive football and that all the people would want to come out and watch us play. 

    A father of one, Campbell would like to play abroad in the future. 

    "Playing football professionally somewhere in Europe, in the MLS or somewhere overseas, that's really my dream right now to see if I can play overseas so I can take care of my family, my friends…that's my aim right now,” he expressed.

    If Campbell can reproduce his CFU Club Championship performances in the CCL, those opportunities promise to be plentiful.
