Young Reggae Boyz must go for goals claims Magee

By November 07, 2018

Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz will predictably go for goals in their final two group matches of the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship with the hope of catching up on group leaders Mexico.

After a highly entertaining 2-2 draw, both teams remain locked on 7 points but it is the Mexicans who hold a superior goal difference of 11 to Jamaica’s 4.

 The Jamaicans will play against Aruba and Saint Martin in their final two games with Mexico set to take on Aruba and Grenada.

After a sensation performance against the Mexicans, in which he scored the team’s equalizer, Jamaican midfielder Tyreek Magee has confirmed the team’s plan to hit the net early and often in their final couple of matches.

“We have to go into the games and try and score as much as possible because we know us and Mexico are at the top but they have more goals than us,” Magee said following the encounter.

Despite what he sites as a lack of preparation Magee also paid tribute to his team’s performance following the draw.

“We didn’t have a whole lot of time to prepare but the lads came out and performed today.  Me and my teammates have been working really hard.”
