Nicaragua football
The Nicaragua national football team (Spanish: Selección de fútbol de Nicaragua) represents Nicaragua in men’s international football and is controlled by the Nicaraguan Football Federation. Nicaragua achieved its first qualification to a major international competition in 2009, as they qualified for the 2009 Gold Cup as the last entrant from Central America, after a 2–0 win over Guatemala in the fifth place match in the 2009 Nations Cup.[3] However, the team has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup. Due to American influence throughout the country’s history, baseball has more of a following as both a pursuit and spectator event in Nicaragua than football.
