KINGSTON---Buoyed by their success in the
recent CONCACAF Under-17 Championship
qualifiers, Jamaica now believe that with
adequate preparation, they can qualify for
next year s FIFA Under-17 World Cup in
Jamaica played outstanding in the qualifiers
staged in Haiti last week, playing unbeaten
to reach the final where they were outplayed
by Haiti to lose 2-0.
However, head coach Andrew Edwards says
the young Reggae Boyz possess enough quality
to be one of the five CONCACAF teams to
qualify for the global event.
"Now we turn our attention towards Hon-
duras (2015 CONCACAF Under-17 Champi-
onship). Once we prepare well, we will compete
for one of the five spaces," Edwards told the
Jamaica Gleaner newspaper.
"We just need to broaden our talent pool,
have more training camps, and get more prac-
tice matches for the players."
Playing in Group B of the qualifiers, Jamaica
opened with a 4-0 drubbing of Martinique,
followed up with a 3-2 victory over Martinique
before brushing aside Cuba 3-0.
In the final, they conceded a goal on either
side of half-time to lose to the Haitians.
Jamaica will now contest next year s CON-
CACAF Under-17 Championship, along with
fellow Caribbean Football Union sides T&T,
St Lucia, Cuba and Haiti.
The tournament will run from February 27
to March 14.
Edwards said Jamaica s quality was evident
in the recent tournament.
"We were above the other teams in the tour-
nament. The quality disparity was clear in my
view," he pointed out.
"Haiti is not far from us in terms of quality.
They had a bit more experience, having been
training for two-and-a-half years, while we
were together for three months." (CMC)
KINGSTON---Reggae Boyz head coach
Winfried Schaefer has placed a massive
emphasis on fitness, as his charges prepare
for their Caribbean Cup campaign starting
here next month.
In fact, the German has warned that
unless the Reggae Boyz reach a high level
of fitness, they cannot be successful in the
November 10-17 tournament.
"I want self-discipline from the players,
with right fitness, right bodyweight and the
right attitude," the Jamaica Observer news-
paper quoted Schaefer as saying.
"Fitness is not only about running, fitness
is a system, because when a player is tired
physically, he s tired mentally, too, and he
can t anticipate very well, and he can t read
the game very well, and he becomes more
prone to mistakes."
He continued: "This is why we need a
very fit team. If we don t have good fitness
we can t win the Caribbean Cup. I m sure
our opponents in the Caribbean Cup will
be fit, and I can t accept when our players
are not fit enough.
"We have no chance without fitness. The
World Cup gave a signal that all the teams
are fit. I want an experienced fitness coach
to come here (Jamaica) and give workshops
for the local coaches. It is not enough that
you can play football, you must be fit that
you can play football. Fitness is number one."
Five-time champions Jamaica will enter
the competition as one of the heavy
favourites. They have been installed in Group
B alongside Antigua and Barbuda, and
French Caribbean sides Martinique and
They will be seeking to compensate for
a poor outing at the last Championship in
2012 when they finished bottom of their
group without a win, and failed to make
The Reggae Boyz have suffered a strong
of losses this year to high profile opposition
but their recent 1-0 defeat to Japan has
given Schaefer hope his side can lift the Reggae Boyz
U-17 World Cup
Caribbean Cup trophy.
"You have to work for success, success doesn t
come to you. Hard work beats talent if talent doesn t
work hard," said the veteran coach.
"When all our players come in and nobody is
injured, yes, I m confident [we can win]. But for that
we have to work, we cannot believe that we are at
home like Brazil, and we have our supporters behind
us, so we will win the Caribbean Cup.
"No, no, we have to work harder than the other
teams. For me the result and performance from the
game against Japan give me more belief that we can
win the Caribbean Cup."
T&T headline Group A of the competition with
Curacao, Cuba and French Guiana also doing battle.

Schaefer ... wants to see higher levels of
Reggae Boyz head coach warns charges:
No success unless fitness addressed
"Fitness is not only about running, fitness is a system, because when
a player is tired physically, he's tired mentally, too, and he can't
anticipate very well, and he can't read the game very well, and he
becomes more prone to mistakes."
