OverviewEdit

As an overseas department of the French Republic, it is an integral part of France and thus not a member of FIFA. French Guiana is therefore not eligible to enter a team in the World Cup independent of France. As full citizens of France, indistinguishable from any other French citizen, French Guianans are eligible to play for the France national football team.

Bernard Lama and Florent Malouda are two examples of Guianese players who have played for the French national team. Lama winning the 1998 World Cup, and UEFA Euro 2000. Malouda playing as a runner-up during the 2006 World Cup.

CONCACAFEdit

However, French Guiana is a member of CONCACAF and CFU, and thus eligible for all competitions organized by both. For any purpose outside of World Cup competition, all of the regional continental confederations may allow teams to be entered by territories that are de jure part of a country the bulk of which is located in a different continental confederation region.

Indeed, according to the status of the FFF (article 34, paragraph 6): "[...]Under the control of related continental confederations, and with the agreement of the FFF, those leagues can organize international sport events at a regional level or set up teams in order to participate to them."
