Reggae Boyz Will travel to tackle USA and Honduras
Jamaica warm-up for Caribbean Cup with February friendlies
Theodore Whitmore has been given back-to-back friendlies in the United States next month in order to tweak Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz ahead of June’s Caribbean Cup defence. The interim head coach faces a tough task for his troops to show their worth when they face USA in Tennessee on 3 February, and his squad members will be vying for automatic selection when the Boyz tackle Honduras in Texas on 16 February.
Whitmore, who has been installed on a temporary basis as head coach, will have his trusty assistant Jerome Waite beside him as they try to impress the Jamaica Football Federation. The 44-year-old was in charge of the Boyz from 2009 until he was forced to part ways in 2013 and immediately replaced by German Winfried Schäfer, and both scored success by winning the Caribbean Cup.
After Schäfer’s dismal display for the 2018 World Cup Qualifying campaign came crashing down courtesy of negative tactics, Captain Horace Burrell had little choice but to get rid of the veteran head coach and it was Whitmore who stepped into the firing line once more last September.
Bruce Arena is back in charge of the USA after they dispensed with the services of German head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, with the friendly to be played inside the Finlay Stadium at Chattanooga, Tennessee.
The players to be invited to both matches will be called to camp in the shortest order in preparation for the games.
