Reggae Boyz dreams stay alive

The victory eased Jamaica into third place in the 4 team group B with 7 points; 2 behind Honduras who started the round as leaders over Mexico on goal defense.

Mexico and Canada drew 2 - 2 in their encounter last night in Edmonton; which places the Central Americans on top with 10 points, but still not leaving them assured of advancing to the final round of 6 teams.

Canada has already been eliminated as they move to 2 points with one game remaining against Jamaica on the 19th of November.

Jamaica will have to beat Canada on that date to give themselves a chance to qualify for the next round.

The game was played at a level of high intensity but the Reggae Boyz were able to come out on top to keep their hopes alive for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Credit must be given to the coach Theodore Whitmore and team captain Ricardo Gardner for leading from the front.

Yardflex would like to congratulate the team for putting up a good fight to beat both Mexico and Honduras and hope they will continue on the same course for a win against Canada.

at the National Stadium next month.
