What happened to BVI: 17-0 and 10-0 , late arrival; they played two friendlies before this tournament, so they were prepared.....Any explanation?

The players that played in friendlies on St Martin did not go to Dominican Rep , they got a completely new team there ! Very strange that they changed all players...

There were questions about the eligibility of some of the players - I think that is why they did not go to the Dominican Republic...
BVI had this question of ineligibility before, when Bermuda protested against some of their players after losing 2-0 to BVI.

There was also a burglary in their HQ's and problems wth the pasports so they had to make a new team very quickly.... I think that is the explanation, because 17-0 against a team that did not play any games the past year....

For BVI, who have experienced one of the worst times in their history these last few days after suffering a break in at their offices and HQ overcoming inclement weather issues to eventually travel, challenges with players passports, obtaining confirmation on player eligibility, flight delays and rounding off with a record beating mauling, the final whistle was welcomed and couldn’t come fast enough for the disheartened squad

Things are not looking good for BVI football's future at all.
The results from BVI's U-20 team in CONCACAF U-20 Championship qualifying in Bonaire recently:
Netherlands Antilles 20-0 BVI
Cuba 29-0 BVI
St.Kitts & Nevis 19-0 BVI
Also, BVI U-20 drew with BVI U-23 2-2 before the tournament started - so this seems to suggest that BVI's U-23 team is really bad as well.

After all, they are only 27000 in total. Compare to US Virgins who are 110000. They are FIFA's 3rd least populated territory, behind Montserrat and the Cook Islands.

British Virgin Islands are FIFA's 4th least populated member.
3. Cook Islands; 2. Anguilla; 1. Montserrat.

I wrote an article on James Shearman, an Englishman from Surrey who ended up playing for the British Virgin Islands, for In Bed With Maradona in case anyone is interested - http://inbedwithmaradona.com/journal/20 ... gchnnog016

An interesting picture showing one of the most important moments in the British Virgin Islands football history: their success in the 1986 Leeward Islands Tournament (a qualifying competition for the OECS Tournament).
