Jamaica’s Young Reggae Boyz Face Tough Group A Draw in Concacaf U-20 Championships

The draw for the Concacaf Men’s Under-20 Championships took place on Thursday, revealing an exciting lineup of matches.

Jamaica’s promising young Reggae Boyz find themselves in Group A, alongside formidable opponents United States, Costa Rica, and Caribbean neighbours Cuba.

The championship is scheduled to kick off from July 19 to August 4 in Mexico.

Under the guidance of coach Jerome Waite, the young Reggae Boyz are gearing up for the challenge, aiming to qualify Jamaica for its first Under-20 Men’s World Cup since their memorable feat in 2001.


Waite, who took over from John Wall after the Caribbean qualifiers, brings with him experience and determination to lead the team to success on the international stage.

Securing a top-two finish in Group A is imperative for Jamaica’s aspirations, as only the top two teams from each group, along with the two best third-place finishers, will advance to the quarterfinals.

From there, the road to qualification becomes clearer, with the four semi finalists earning the coveted spots as Concacaf representatives at the FIFA Under-20 World Cup next year.

Waite, familiar with high-pressure situations, was at the helm during the 2018 tournament, where the young Reggae Boyz defied expectations and captured the nation’s hearts with their impressive performances.

Despite finishing level on points with Concacaf giants Mexico, Jamaica narrowly missed out on advancing due to goal difference.
