The young Jamaican Reggae Boyz got off on the wrong foot in the world cup qualifying campaign by going down to Honduras 0-2.
The Jamaicans look shaky early in the game and gave up a goal early in the first half. Defensively the young reggae boys gave up too many unnecessary fouls early in the game. While on the offensive side of the ball they fail to string continuous passes together. The Jamaicans seems to be depending on speed and strength and did far too many kick and run.
As the game went on the Jamaicans settled down and gained their bearings. The threatened a couple of times and barely miss a chance that went a little wide of the goal.
Despite the loss, the Jamaican team shows that they have some very talented young players, especially Alex Marshall and Nicholas Nelson.
With four games to go, the young Reggae Boys are still expected to qualify for the U-17 World Cup. They have to play with more poise and discipline, however, especially in the central defense.
In other matches in the group, Guatemala defeated the young Soca Warriors from Trinidad and Tobago 4-1, while the United States ran over Europe 5-0.
