Costa Rica put paid to Grenada’s attempt to reach South Africa 2010, but only after the islanders had thrashed US Virgin Islands 10-0 in the first round. The Grenadians can take heart from the fact they held the experienced Ticos to a 2-2 draw at home before going down 3-0 away. They looked in better shape to make a mark in qualifying for Brazil 2014, but they could only end up bottom of their second-round group behind winners Guatemala, Belize and St Vincent and the Grenadines.
