Compliments of the Nation News

In a region where cricket has traditionally had a stronghold, Football has gradually been making incursions into the consciousness of sports fans. Trinidad & Tobago' s national team has been prominent for a while, taking part in regional competition as well as world cup qualifying matches and the Reggae Boyz from Jamaica were great favourites when they competed in the 1998 world cup. Barbados is also taking football seriously with an enthusiastic youth team that is doing well in international fixtures

In the World Cup of 1998 the Reggae Boyz reigned supreme and for a while football was on every Jamaican's mind.
In France, people attending the world cup matches were asked who they would pick after their own home team to win and an overwhelming majority picked Jamaica! Testament to the effort and character displayed by the team and a matter of great pride for the country.
