AskSpoFi: Why are Guyana and Surinam in CONCACAF?: These countries are in South America, so what's the 411? Guyana "is a tropical country situated on the northern coast of South America... bordered by Venezuela on the west, Suriname on the east, Brazil on the south and the Atlantic Ocean on the north." And "the Republic of Surinam is the second smallest country of the South American continent." I'm curious because Concacaf, including these two, has 32 squads while Conmebol only has 10 yet reference books list them as part of South America.
