The Suriname national football team (Dutch, "Surinaams voetbalelftal"; Sranantongo, "Sranankondre fubal pluga") is the national team of Suriname and is controlled by the Surinamese Football Association.

History[edit]

Although the former Dutch colony is located in South America, it competes in CONCACAF, together with Guyana and French Guiana. Suriname won the CFU Championship (Digicel Caribbean Cup predecessor) in 1978, were runners-up in 1979 and reached fourth place in 1994 and 1996. Unlike in the Netherlands Antilles, another former Dutch colony, it is ruled that players who move abroad to play in the Netherlands are not eligible to play for Suriname.[2] Many Suriname-born players and Dutch-born players of Surinamese descent, like Gerald Vanenburg, Ruud Gullit, Frank Rijkaard, Edgar Davids, Clarence Seedorf, Andwélé Slory, Ryan Babel, Patrick Kluivert, Aron Winter, Romeo Castelen, Royston Drenthe, and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink turned out to play for Oranje. In 1999, Humphrey Mijnals, who played for both Suriname and the Netherlands, was elected Surinamese footballer of the century.[3] Another famous player is André Kamperveen, who captained Suriname in the 1940s and was the first Surinamese to play professionally in the Netherlands.

In 2008 Suriname entered the group stage of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying despite using only local players. With their two-leg victory over neighbours Guyana, Suriname faced Haiti, Costa Rica, and El Salvador in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification (CONCACAF) semi-finale round. Suriname has also qualified to the second round of the 2008 Caribbean Championship. The Surinaamse Voetbal Bond has signed an equipment sponsorship with the Dutch company COPA to last for four years.[4]

Suriname has participated in the qualifying matches for the FIFA World Cup since 1962, but has never qualified for the finals. Suriname's strongest showing in World Cup qualification was the campaign for the 1978 finals, when the national team reached the final group stage.

Suriname also came second in CONCACAF qualifying for the 1964 Olympics, behind qualifiers Mexico and third in qualifying for the 1980 Olympics, behind qualifiers Costa Rica and United States. The US then boycotted the Moscow Olympics, and were replaced by Cuba in the football tournament, after Suriname opted to boycott the games as well.
