Several of Jamaica’s senior men’s national team are hailing the team’s preparation heading into the friendly international against South American champions, Argentina.
The two-time world champions are ranked third in the world by FIFA and second in the world by Elo in their adjusted ranking system.
Jamaica is ranked outside of the top 60 in the world in both metrics. But, it appears the Reggae Boyz are confident of giving a good showing in this giants vs minnows clash.
Winger, Leon Bailey, who plies his trade in the English Premier League with Aston Villa, is choosing to focus on the individual qualities of Jamaica’s players.
In addition to Bailey, Jamaica has the Premier League pedigree of Mikhail Antonio, Jamal Lowe and Bobby Reid.
Shamar Nicholson featured in last season’s Europa League before his club ban and Kaheem Parris will feature this season with Ukrainian giants Dynamo Kyiv.
New coach Heimir Hellgrimsson says the key is to mould the individual into the collective, and Reid says there is a path to that.
Meanwhile, Inter Miami defender, Damion Lowe, says the players are buying into the manager’s methods.
