Notably, Jamaica was the first English-speaking Caribbean country to qualify for the FIFA World Cup, earning a spot in the 1998 staging of the football tournament, which was hosted by France. However, the senior team has not yet been able to replicate the qualifying success the country experienced decades ago.

Jamaica is currently ranked 55th in the world by FIFA, while the Dominican Republic is ranked 150th. The Dominican Republic has never qualified for the FIFA World Cup. According to the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), the squad list for the upcoming match will be released on June 1.

In addition to Jamaica and the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Dominica, and the British Virgin Islands will also be competing in Group E. Following Jamaica’s match on Thursday, Dominica will then host the Reggae Boyz to complete their first two rounds of matchdays in the second round on June 9.

Guatemala will face Dominica on June 5 and the Virgin Islands on June 8. The Virgin Islands will face the Dominican Republic on June 11.
