Antigua celebrates with it's new FIFA ranking

You can spend an entire year on Antigua and not step on the same beach twice. Yes, 365 beaches. One for every day of the year. So you'd think that with such an amazing claim to fame an island could sit back on it's laurels but no. Now Antigua is becoming recognized for its football (soccer). 

The Benna Boys, as they have come to be known, have improved ten places over their September ranking and are now only behind powerhouses Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean Football Union rankings at number two.

So next time you are spending some time on a beautiful sandy beach in Antigua you may want to join a quick game of football.
