St. Vincent and the Grenadines remains in position 167 in the latest Coca Cola FIFA men’s Rankings released last Thursday.
SVG is 21st in CONCACAF and 12th on the Caribbean Football Union’s list.
St Vincent and the Grenadines Senior Men’s Football team has been inactive for some time, with their last outing being 18th November last year versus Dominica in the CONCACAF Nations League, in which they went down, to mark the first blemish in what was otherwise a successful run in 2019.
The Vincentian team, which goes by the moniker Vincy Heat, began its renaissance when it took the Windward Islands Football Association (WIFA) Tournament in an beaten run, defeating Barbados 2-0 and St Lucia and Dominica 2-1, and drawing 1-1 with Grenada.
A 2-1 win over Bonaire in the CONCACAF Nations League Qualifiers ignited the mercury in Vincy Heat’s rising temperature.
Vincy Heat would go on to play three friendly internationals during August and September.  Among these were a one- nil win over Trinidad and Tobago’s Soca Warriors, a 1-1 draw and a 1-0 loss to Belize.
Competing in Group D of Tier B of the Nations League, Vincy Heat ended with three wins, two draws and a solitary loss, represented by scores of 1-1 and 1-0 versus Nicaragua; 1-0 and 2-2 against Suriname, and 1-0 and 0-1, against Dominica.
Finishing second to group winners Suriname, Vincy Heat advanced to the first round of the Gold Cup Qualifiers, where they were due to meet Guadeloupe on 26th and 31st March, in Guadeloupe and at home respectively.However, the COVID-19 has caused the matches to be put on hold.
And, based on CONCACAF’s bulletin last week, the Gold Cup Qualifiers as well as its other competitions, are further suspended, because of the pandemic.(TheVincentian)
