Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz arrived in London earlier today for Sunday’s (Oct. 9) highly anticipated match against the Australian national team, to be held at the Fulham Football Club ground in Craven Cottage.
The match is being billed as a clash between “everyone’s favourite international team, the Reggae Boyz, and the Qantas Socceroos,” and is receiving a lot of media coverage in Australia and wide support from the Australian and Caribbean communities in London.
The Jamaican team is confident going into the game following its excellent showing in this year’s CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament, where the side was knocked out at the quarterfinal stage by eventual competition winners, the United States.
The Australians, who are preparing for a World Cup showdown with a South American opposition in November, want to use the game as a dress rehearsal for one of the most important games in their history. They also hope to repeat their 2-1 victory over the Reggae Boyz, which was recorded the last time the sides met in England in 2003.
High Commissioner to the United Kingdom Gail Mathurin will meet the Jamaican team prior to the 1:00 p.m. (London) kick off time.
