You are always a breath of fresh air, and you have always seen the finer points to the game. Great observation on our defense. I am more inclined to think in defense we do not have the right mental toughness that is required for us to be competitive in these WCQs' nor the World Cup. Prime example was us giving up a goal at the 88th minute.
Did you see yesterday's game with US vs. Italy? I would say that was an impressive game for the US as they sustained nearly 25minutes of more constant barrage from the Italians, and their defense did not get breach. In that constant bombardment I thought Jamaica would have given up a goal under that pressure not because they were not capable, but because they were not mentally tough. I could be wrong,BUT I really doubt it!
We as Jamaica need some more strength work in this area. Got to say with us going to New Zealand and under stressful situation produced a credible result even though New Zealand is not such a powerful team. I applauld them working as a unit and coming through with a win. However, they must improve if they are to be competitive versus Mexico and the United States in particular. The US team yesterday shows that they have heart especially in defense. They made CONCACAF proud yesterday. Kudos to them, but Jamaica need to start seeking additional help urgently for the defense. defense will save us and not let in golas or cause goal differenses to keep us out of another WORLD CUP. Pele, big up and keep on with the inciteful analysis, and HI keep the passion alive!
