    Belize drew the first leg of the world cup qualifier 0-0, and drew the second 1-1 but thankfully the away goal meant that belize progressed.
    In the second leg they face Dominican Republic on 8 June and 16 of June

    Anyone else notice Belize are playing in the UNCAF U-16 tournament. Is this something they've done before? ie. play youth sides in UNCAF instead of CFU

    why would they be a CFU side if they're located in Central America. This isn't the same as Guyana or Suriname either, since both of whom are not in CONMEBOL hence in CFU and they're located closer to the islands than they are to Central America.

    Weird, you know I think I blanked for a few hours last night and thought they were normally in CFU. Must have confused them with Guyana etc.

    To be fair, they do have some of the same characteristics that put those 3 countries in CFU instead of CONMEBOL - ie. being more ethnically, culturally, and linguistically Caribbean than everyone else in the region.

    That's true, but fortunately/unfortunately they're located in Central America and count as a Central American country even though they're culturally more Caribbean.

    Considering that Belize is more culturally Caribbean rather than Central American, and that the team has never been successful in the UNCAF, I feel like Belize should be demoted to the CFU, where they might enjoy some success.

    Another pro is that UNCAF would then have an even number of 6 teams, rather than 7.

    Belize would struggle in CFU too.. T&T, Jamaica, Cuba, Haiti.. it's marginal tbh as to whether or not they would manage to qualify for the Copa Oro.

    Plus traveling expenses would be more, I assume. Belize doesn't exactly have the money to spend on extra travel fares.

    Aside from the strong CFU sides that you mentioned, CFU is notably weaker than UNCAF, and thus would be more fitting for Belize, but I guess travel expenses is the deal-breaker here. Ah well. :thumbsdown:

    Seeing as Guyana did not look at all good vs. Barbados, and Puerto Rico doesn't look very impressive, there seems to be a decent chance that Belize takes all 12 points and not only qualifies for the Gold Cup, but Leage A of the Nations League next year.

    Montserrat could be tricky though after how tough they made it for El Salvador.
