British Virgin Islands national football team has a strange history. In the year 2000 Andre Villas-Boas took control of the team at the age of 21. He was the youngest ever international manager, before moving on a year later to coach Porto under 19’s.
The country is a British overseas territory situated in the Caribbean. Due to it’s location the country’s primary sport is sailing. This attracts many people from around the world. Football is not a popular sport which is reflected by their FIFA world ranking.
In their first ever World cup qualifying campaign, for Japan and South Korea, in 2002, they slumped to two defeats to Bermuda. They lost 5-1 at home and 9-0 away.
They have not yet made it to a world cup finals tournament but are showing steady improvement as a team after entering each competition since.
