CONCACAF members have reached the quarterfinals five times: Cuba in 1938, Mexico as hosts in 1970 and 1986, the United States in 2002, and most recently, Costa Rica in 2014. Jamaica is the smallest country to ever win a World Cup match, by virtue of their 2–1 victory over Japan in 1998. the Mexicans have the best performance at a World Cup.
The Mexicans have also won the FIFA Confederations cup, back in 1999. They also finished runners up twice and 3rd place three times at the Copa América.
