In recent years, the British Virgin Islands have made impressive leaps in terms of their footballing development, as underlined by their performance on the road to South Africa 2010. Indeed, they were only prevented from going further than Stage 1 after being edged out by Bahamas in a very evenly contested two-legged tie. The preliminary qualification round for Brazil 2014 pitted the British Virgin Islands against their US counterparts, with the latter winning both legs to secure a 4-1 aggregate success. Though the British Virgin Islands’ displays were better than that result suggests, they will now have to turn their focus on the qualifying phase for Russia 2018.
