Qualification history
In recent years the British Virgin Islands have made impressive leaps in their footballing development, as underlined by their performance on the road to South Africa 2010 where they were only denied by a slim margin by the Bahamas. This time out, in qualifying for Russia 2018, they again put up a good fight. The team, coached by former playing star Avondale Williams, stretched Dominica in both legs of their early round series despite playing both games on the road. They lost the first meeting 3-2 and stood firm after a 0-0 result in the return leg. Despite the loss, BVI’s star is rising in the lower reaches of the CONCACAF zone.
