BA­HAMAS

Late Tackle Football Magazine - - ALSO-RANS -

The Ba­hamas are, of course, an­other set of Caribbean is­lands. Although big­ger at 5,358 square miles and more pop­u­lous at 392,718, they don’t have the foot­ball bug. Cricket is num­ber one here un­sur­pris­ingly, although Ba­hamas are not part of the West Indies Con­fed­er­a­tion, so their play­ers can only rep­re­sent Ba­hamas.

Ba­hamas’ big­gest foot­ball prob­lem is that they don’t play very often. So far in 2016 they haven’t played a sin­gle game. They only en­ter the World Cup and don’t ap­pear in­ter­ested in other in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ments.

Their last matches were in 2015, two World Cup qual­i­fiers against Ber­muda which they lost 3-0 and 5-0. They last scored a goal in 2008 in a thrilling 2-2 draw against the Bri­tish Vir­gin Is­lands. (no com­ments about Bri­tish vir­gins please – this is a fam­ily mag­a­zine).
