The young Reggae Boyz of Jamaica, scored an impressive 2-1 win over Honduras in the quarter-finals of the U17 CONCACAF tournament, and World Cup qualifiers.
The win was significant, and I write this because this win not only puts them in the semi-finals of the CONCACAF but in the World Cup Under 17 championships coming up later this year in Mexico. In fact, all 4 semi-finalists in the CONCACAF qualifies.
No time to celebrate as the young Boyz face a tough US team which beat them 2-1 and drew 0-0 in two friendlies before the tournament started.
The young Soca Warriors of Trinidad & Tobago fared differently as they went up against powerhouse Canada, who defeated them 2-0, ending their World Cup aspirations.
Congrats to both teams. Let’s cheer on Jamaica in the CONCACAF tournament and cheer for all 4 qualifiers in the upcoming Under 17 World Cup. The CONCACAF representatives to the U17 World Cup are:
Canada | Jamaica | Panama | United States
