Qualification history
Suriname’s first taste of the qualifiers came in the Chile 1962 preliminaries. Though yet to go all the way, they did make the first group phase in the South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014 qualifiers, their best performances to date.

Nicaragua proved to be too strong an opponent for Suriname, running out 4-1 aggregate winners in the second round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying.
