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.

Jamaica’s preparation for the FIFA 2022 World Cup in Qatar will get underway when the Reggae Boyz play The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in two International Friendly games next month.  

Both games will be played at the Prince Faisal bin Fahad Stadium in Riyadh on November 14 and 17. This is indeed the best way to kick-start preparation with the squad experiencing the identical regional conditions under which the World Cup will be played.
