Watch Fuller

It’s always a treat to have the Jamaica national football side here and anyone who missed the match against Cayman Select last night should grab the final chance on Sunday.

The Reggae Boyz will play a full-strength Cayman side at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex. Kick off is 7pm.

The Reggae Boyz are fine tuning for the Gold Cup competition in the United States next month.

Stoke City striker Ricardo Fuller will be the top name on display on Sunday. Fuller and Luton Shelton did not play last night after expressing concerns about playing on the artificial surface.

However, they will both be in Sunday’s match which is sponsored byBudweiser, Kelme, Advance Automotive Limited, Money Centre, Western Union and Digicel.

Meanwhile, Fuller also added his voice to the Jamaica Football Federation’s proposal to pay the players based on performance for the upcoming Gold Cup.

According to him, this will bring added pressure for the players knowing their remuneration will be based on performance.

Fuller believes the Reggae Boyz will do well in the Gold Cup regardless as new coach Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore is the right man for the job.

Whitmore said of his side not qualifying for the World Cup final qualifiers: ‘We can’t keep thinking of the past anymore. We’re past that and just thinking of the Gold Cup now. It is like our World Cup now. It’s our focus.

‘The reality is that we have a good squad, capable of winning the competition. We expect a good performance and that will bring good results.’
