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.
