Jamaica’s senior national men’s football team danced up a storm in celebration after booking their spot in the semi-final in this year’s staging of the Gold Cup by dispatching Guatemala 1-0. The Reggae Boyz will battle Central American Kingpins, Mexico, for a place in the final this Wednesday.
Viral footage shared online shows the joyous and passionate scenes within the Reggae Boyz dressing room. Despite not playing in the quarter-final against Guatemala, Dujuan Whisper Richards led the celebration by dancing his boots off. Whisper is better known for his skills on a football pitch, but Sunday evening, the young star showed his versatility.
The video was apparently recorded by the man of the match Demari Gray who shared the footage via Instagram on his page with the following caption, “Semi Finals Lets Go.”
To say the vibe inside the Reggae Boyz’ changing room was good would be an understatement, as the rest of the squad joined in on the fun by singing and doing a few dances as well. However, it was West Ham’s forward Michail Antonio who stole the show with his silky smooth dancing foot skills.
The bustling forward has been a pleasant revelation since his debut for Jamaica two years ago, on the football field that is though.
But Antonio showed a different knack as he took to the dressing room floor turned dance floor to showcase his unique dance moves perfectly choreographed as Teejay’s massive hit Drift blasted in the background.
Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) also shared a clip of the jubilant celebration via Instagram, with the majority of the players, coaches and staff members coming together for a joy-filled group picture. The short video was posted with the caption, “The vibe after victory over Guatemala.”
