  1. The reporter in this story is lacking in positivety.

    When you keep mentioning that Jamaica beat st.vincent and the grenadines in a none qualifying (a warm up match) you are discrediting the ability of these hard working person who has been undefeated in the three qualifying matches thus far!

    St.vincent and the grenadines has won all it qualifying matches beating the great USA by 20 point!
