Jamaican midfielder Pater-Lee Vassell believs that his side can qualify for Qatar World Cup to be held in 2022. According him, Reggae Boyz need to play together as team and when football returns after this COVID-19 pandemic, his side can really do well in the qualifiers to make it to world cup 2022 finals.
In an interview to Jamaica Observer, Vassell said that Boyz are doing lot of hard work to qualify for the soccer’s gala event. Jamaican national side is currently at the 48th position in FIFA world rankings.
“I strongly believe we can make it to the World Cup. The guys have been doing a lot of work and we have been getting good results over the past year, and we have been together as a team as well,” Vassell said in the interview.
Jamaica last appeared in 1998 world cup which was held in France. Reggae Boyz won only group game against Japan and since then team is try to make it through to FIFA world cup finals since long but couldn’t make it though.
