Qualification history
Not only have Puerto Rico never been to the FIFA World Cup™ finals, but before the road to Brazil 2014 they had only recorded two wins in qualifying since making their debut in the preliminaries for Germany 1974. However, they doubled that tally in the last CONCACAF campaign, although they still failed to secure a place in the third round.

After beating Grenada 1-0 in the first leg of the second round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, Puerto Rico lost the second leg 2-0, ending their dreams of a continued march towards Russia 2018.
