Jamaica Beats Honduras 1-0 To Top Group B In Nations League

Friday, September 8, 2023, 10:33 PM

The Reggae Boyz launched their Nations League 2023-24 campaign with a win against Honduras.

Coach Hallgrimsson named a strong starting lineup for their Group B opener, however, the Reggae Boyz failed to impress in the first half of the game following their indecisiveness in the attacking third as they dominated possession early on.



Despite this, the Reggae could have had a 1-0 early lead after Reid’s fantastic finish was ruled off wrongfully for offside by the linesman, following a needle eye pass from Gray.

Honduras’ best chance came after the 20-minute mark when a powerful shot from one of their attacking players was tipped over the bar by the Jamaican goalkeeper. Whisper Richards also saw a late shot bounce off the post to end the first half in a goalless stalemate.

The Reggae Boyz eventually broke the deadlock after another delightful finish for former Everton winger Gray in a Jamaica shirt. The tricky winger broke free in the box via Reid with the assist and made it look easy to hand Jamaica a well-deserved 1-0 lead with 63 minutes on the clock.

Honduras barely offered anything in attack as Jamaica pushed for a second to avoid any drama late on. Bailey extracted a couple of yellow cards from the Honduran men with his silky touches down the wing for the Reggae Boyz.

In the end, the Jamaicans had to settle for a 1-0 victory, which still took them to the top of Group B as they registered a staggering five straight wins against the Central American team.
