Anguilla 0-4 Puerto Rico

The VAlley

Anguilla’s second and final Caribbean Cup qualifier saw the team taking on Puerto Rico in the home environs of The Valley in Anguilla. Technically, a win by seven or more would have kept Anguilla in with a chance of progressing to the next round. In reality, it was a final attempt for the time being to record a positive result for the first time in nearly five years.

This week saw the announcement of the qualifying draw for the 2017 Caribbean Cup; a tournament that we have long had an interest in here at Worst in the World. The qualifying groups will be played in March 2016 ahead of the Finals tournament the following year.

Our interest this year focuses on Anguilla – one of world football’s smallest nations and current resident of the Worst in the World position in the world rankings. We should have had interest in two nations in this qualifying process as the Bahamas are also a current member of our club but they have declined entry to the Caribbean Cup on this occasion for reasons as yet unknown.
