Jamaica Climbing up in Fifa Rankings

Jamaica reached their 3rd successive CONCACAF Gold Cup Finals and slowly climbed up to hold the world no. 52 spot after Fifa’s latest ranking. Head coach Theodore was unable to prevent the Boyz from suffering a 3-1 defeat when they played against the USA earlier this month.

If the Boyz didn’t lose, they would be among the top 50 teams.

The Boyz are now trailing the USA (no.22) and Costa Rica (No. 44), they are 4th among the CONCACAF sides.
Mexico won the USA in the Gold Cup tournament’s finals and remains the highest ranked CONCACAF nation, as they hold the No. 12 spot.

Whitmore has been a steady influence on the Boyz since he was reinstalled as head coach not very long ago.
CONCACAF determined that the leading six nations in the June 2020 world rankings will compete in the regions FIFA 2022 World Cup Berths.

This is good news for Jamaica, as they are placed above the other nations, which includes Honduras (67) Panama (74) Canada (78), Curacoa (79), El Salvador (68), Haiti (83).
