Quite the upset, the only team usvi has ever defeated is the British Virgin Islands. They have only won three games in their history dating back to 1998. Two of those wins came against the British virgins in the last cycle that took them to the group stage where they got slaughtered by Haiti, Antigua and Barbuda and curaçao.

Barbados is also ranked 131 so expect a massive jump in the rankings.

Mar 27 - 1st leg

Curacao 2 Montserrat 1

 

Even with their team filled with European players, Curacao could only manage a 2-1 victory over Montserrat.

The Montserrat team has mostly non-league English based players.  Most of them were born in England.  A lot of people left the island after the  volcanic eruption in the 1990's and now it only has a population of around 4,900.

Curaçao has a better squad than us...

We will see what happens when they play cuba. These teams seem to be getting more and more guys from lower level European leagues. Anybody know if the players in the Dutch top flight see first team minutes?
