Belize’s crowning achievement came in the 2013 edition, when it earned its first (and only) win in the competition, advanced to the semifinals and qualified for that year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Since that lone victory – a 2-1 triumph over Nicaragua thanks to goals by Trevor Lennen and Deon McCaulay – Belize has lost five straight Copa Centroamericana matches, netting only once over that stretch.
In the 2014 edition, the Belizeans dropped decisions in each of its three matches against teams that ultimately qualified for the 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup (0-2 v Honduras, 1-2 v Guatemala, 0-2 v El Salvador).
Belize enjoyed a fairly successful qualifying campaign for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and went as far as the third round by posting an overall record of 2W-3D-1L, before being eliminated by Canada (agg: 1-4).
- Forward Deon McCaulay was the joint-top scorer in qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup with Luis Suarez (Uruguay) and Robin Van Persie (11 goals each).
- McCaulay was Belize’s top scorer in qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup (4 goals: 2 away v Dominican Republic, 1 home v Dominican Republic, 1 home v Canada)
- McCaulay is Belize’s all-time leading Copa Centroamericana scorer (4 goals–2007: 2, 2013: 1, 2014: 1)
- Belize has never scored more than three goals in a single Copa Centroamericana (3 in 2001, 2007, 2009 & 2011).
