The Montserrat National Football Team have made their way in the world of soccer with remarkable improvements year after year. They have taken a path of continuous development, which led them to become a stronger team that earned respect in the region. BOL has joined them in this journey to provide them their unique jerseys and to encourage the growth that the Caribbean team is having.
From the ashes of the Sufrière Hills, the Emerald Boys were reborn and turned into a hard opponent to face for any Concacaf nation. With the leadership of an extremely experienced head coach like it is William Donachie, Montserrat's soccer team recorded impressive results in the past years.
Following a great qualifying campaign for the Nations League, they proved their level once again by remaining on League B. After waiting for the return to the pitch, the Emerald Boys were back on track in 2021 with an encouraging start to the Concacaf World Cup Qualification for Qatar 2022.
The beginning of a new dream
The Montserrat National Team have begun their journey towards the upcoming FIFA World Cup facing two difficult ordeals. In the opening game of their campaign, they faced Antigua and Barbuda away. Before this clash, the Emerald Boys weren't favored at all by the oddsmakers, who believed that the hosts were going to win comfortably.
However, Montserrat came up strong to overcome the odds. On the road, William Donachie's side has taken the lead in the first minutes of an eventful game which ended in a 2-2 draw. Nevertheless, they were in advantage twice, as Lyle Taylor scored the 0-1, and later the 1-2, before their rival put the score level.
In a match where they were seen as the underdogs, Montserrat proved to be a tough team who shouldn't be underestimated. The following clash was even more difficult, though. They had to face El Salvador, one of the most important teams of the region, who were seeking a win as well. Once again, the Emerald Boys impressed with a last-gasp equalizer scored by Lyle Taylor against a powerful side from the Concacaf.
The opportunity to keep growing with the support of BOL
The Montserrat Football Association had a huge boost with BOL joining their path. The brand has given the Caribbean team the possibility of having their special, well-thought jerseys.
