Anguilla entered in the Caribbean qualifiers for the 2010 Gold Cup, held in Mexico during 28 October–8 November 2010. The team was drawn along with Barbados and Grenada. The first game (as away team) was in Barbados National Stadium and finished on a 3–0 defeat to Barbados. Again in Barbados National Stadium, Anguilla faced Grenada, and the result was a 2–0 victory. Despite this result, Anguilla didn't qualified to the next stage because the only place on the Group E was occupied by Barbados, who won both of its matches.
