There was uproar in some quarters in Jamaica when all the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) officials who travelled with the Reggae Boyz to Saudi Arabia for the two match friendly, departed that country while four players who had tested positive for Covid-19, were left behind.

Even as the Reggae Boyz prepare to face Saudi Arabia in two international friendlies in a few days, their plans have been hit by the Covid-19 virus as one local based player has been found to be infected, while an overseas based player is deemed to be compromised.

World Cup preparations for the Reggae Boyz hit a major snag with the revelation that the two friendlies originally scheduled for October, were cancelled due to concerns about the Covid-19 virus.

The news of the cancellation of the games came by way of a press release from the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) on Sunday.
