[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING] Less than a year after the 2010 World Cup ended, the road to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil began in the city of Couva on the island of Trinidad & Tobago. Playing its home game at the Ato Bolden Stadium because it lacked a suitable stadium of its own, tiny Montserrat fell to Belize, 5-2, in the first game of World Cup 2014 qualifying.

Deon McCauley had the honor of scoring the first hat trick of the 2014 qualifying campaign with three goals for Belize.

The second leg will be played in Belize on Sunday.

The 10 lowest ranked Concacaf teams were paired off in preliminary-round series. Anguilla-Dominican Republic, U.S. Virgin Islands-British Virgin Islands, Aruba-Saint Lucia and Turks & Caicaos Islands-Bahamas will be played next month before the World Cup qualifying draw in Rio de Jaineiro.

The five winners will join the other 25 Concacaf teams in the qualifying draw.

The top six teams -- including the USA and Mexico -- have byes to the semifinal round. The other 24 teams will meet to determine the other six Concacaf semifinalists.
