OverviewEdit

As an overseas department of the French Republic, it is not a member of FIFA. French Guiana is therefore not eligible to enter the World Cup, but French Guianans are eligible to play for the French national football team, as they are French citizens. Bernard Lama and Florent Malouda are two examples of Guianese players who have played for the French national team, the former winning the 1998 World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000 and the latter playing as a runner-up during the 2006 World Cup.

However, French Guiana is a member of CONCACAF and CFU, and thus eligible for all competitions organized by both. 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."

^A few days after the original game ended 0–0, CONCACAF awarded Honduras a 3–0 win against French Guiana as a result of French Guiana fielding the ineligible player Florent Malouda, after the match had finished 0–0. Malouda previously had 80 caps with France and did not meet eligibility rules. French Guiana were also fined, and Malouda was banned for 2 CONCACAF Gold Cup matches.
