Having only founded a football association in 1980, Belize are generally
considered the whipping boys of the Central American area. And though
they have traditionally played very few matches with not so stellar
results, the small country on the Caribbean Sea is beginning to show
some promise.

At the very least the Belizeans have competed in the qualifying
tournaments for the last two FIFA World Cups™, which can only see them
get better. Their debut in the run-up to France '98 saw them draw a
knockout home-and-away tie with Panama that ended with an aggregate
score of 6-2.

The division of Central American qualifying into two groups last time
saw Belize double the number of matches they played and also earn their
first point. Playing in Honduras, they won a hard-fought scoreless draw
with Guatemala, though their minus-8 goal differential in their other
three matches will need to be improved if they have hope of going
further this time around.

At the very least the Belizeans have competed in the qualifying
tournaments for the last three FIFA World Cups™, which can only see the
inexperienced side improve down the road.

Their debut in the run-up to France '98 saw them draw a knockout
home-and-away tie with Panama that ended with an aggregate score of 6-2.
The division of Central American qualifying into two groups ahead of the
2002 FIFA World Cup saw Belize double the number of matches they played
and also earn their first point. Playing in Honduras, they scrapped to a
hard-fought scoreless draw with Guatemala.

A difficult match-up with dependable Canada in qualifying for Germany
2006 ended in Belize’s straightforward elimination once again. And
though a pair of 4-0 losses was difficult to live with, the fact that
the underdogs were only a goal down at half-time of each contest is
promising. That the team had to play both legs of the tie in Canada is not.
