Over the years, whenever Jamaica
and T&T faced off on the football
field, the encounter was never con-
sidered an international friendly.
Both countries saw the game as an
"official" friendly and played with
the intensity of a truly competitive
On this occasion, it will be an ideal
contest for the Warriors, seeing that
they will face Honduras with the de-
termination to get the three points
at stake, a factor which could be the
only result to keep them on the road
I can recall ten occasions when I was
among the national teams of the past,
to deal with the "Reggae Boyz" and it
was never easy.
It was always my belief that the
countries had the
greatest respect for
each other and may
well have supported
one another if either
witnessed the other
in competition with
I do recall some of
the excellent players
over the years such as
the great Gerry Alex-
ander, a brilliant cen-
tral defender whose
talent was rated with
many of the good one
in the English League.
Then there were
names like Lindy Delapenha, Syd Bartlett, Walter
Chevannes and Allan Skill Cole, who were replaced
by those who excelled in the English Premier League
(EPL) in more recent times.
Today, the Jamaican national team is divided be-
tween the overseas players and the local lads, a factor
which may have stifled the locals in many cases.
With Theodore Whitmore being given an extended
contract as head coach, following his team's outstand-
ing results in the Gold Cup, there is no doubt that he
will go all the way to earn victory away from home.
In a strange way, these two teams bear resemblance
tactically, where their skilled players develop the for-
mula for any tactically prepared game.
Both teams give preference to starting their build
up from the back four and start the search of their
Like the Reggae Boyz, Kevin Molino, Khaleem Hy-
land, Leston Paul or/and Sean De Silva will expect to
receive the ball in midfield positions in order to start
the speed machinery of Willis Plaza, Cordell Cato and
In recent times, the Jamaicans have had maximum
use of the very talented Darren Mattocks, a tremen-
dous workhorse and has an absolute greed for scoring
The chemistry of the Reggae Boyz has been im-
pressive in the Gold Cup, although the quality of
some of the opponents were weakened because of
their country's desire to rest their key players for
World Cup such as Panama, Honduras, the USA and
Nevertheless, T&T coach Dennis Lawrence has
himself admitted that unforced errors tended to be
their biggest problem while a solid defence which
sometimes fail to communicate well against speedy
I would hope that Lawrence would entertain the
thought that a friendly or two against the Pro League
teams may sharpen these weak areas and bring the
level of determination which is needed for victories
in the next few games.
I thought that the decision to play against Jamaica
at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port-of-Spain was
ideal for the local team to get used to the speed of the
surface, especially during the rainy season and also
to learn everything about the current condition of
the major stadium.
Honduras, however, will find that the venue for
which they are accustomed will now be the Ato Boldon
Stadium in Couva. This does not allow any opportunity
for home advantage.
I believe that it will be a game that is worth seeing
and will provide the Warriors with stern competition.
Good Luck Warriors.
