A small multi-island nation, St Vincent and the Grenadines have caused more than the odd upset in the past with a place at the CONCACAF Gold Cup finals in 1996 a notable achievement.  Currently ranked 128th in the world, the national team had a busy year in 2004 playing 19 matches after two (2) years of inactivity.  The 2006 FIFA World Cup TM qualifiers began with a visit to Nicaragua where they had to settle for a 2-2 draw after leading twice, but they made sure of progress in Kingstown with a 4-1 victory.  Being drawn in a group with Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago and St Kitts/Nevis did not inspire confidence and sure enough third place in the group was the end of the road.  However, the islanders could take some comfort in that they only lost to Mexico by the one goal in Kingstown, a far better result than the 11-0 thrashing they received in 1992.  Serbian coach Zoran Vranes joined the side midway through the campaign and he guided the team through a good run in the Digicel Caribbean Cup in which St Vincent eliminated Grenada before narrowly losing to Trinidad and Tobago.  Because of the many islands that make up the country there is no single league structure, rather 14 different championships that give little coherence and focus for sponsors and fans.
