Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz Set To Do Battle Against Uruguay

Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz will get a chance to do battle against Uruguay, one of South America’s football kingpins, in a football friendly international on June 11 at the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo.

This fixture which comes after Jamaica’s home game against Mexico in League “A” of the CONCACAF Nations League on June 7, will give the Boyz more game time and international exposure.

The Jamaicans have met the two-time World Cup winners on five occasions which comprise one victory and four losses.

The last time both teams met was at the 2016 COPA America Centenario, where Uruguay blanked Jamaica 3-0.

Jamaica’s only win over Uruguay came in 2004 when Jamaica won 2-0 at the National Stadium.

This is the second friendly that Jamaica has confirmed in recent weeks, as they will face the Spanish region of Catalonia on May 25, leading into the CONCACAF Nations League.

Jamaica will play four matches in June as they will face Suriname away on June 4 before welcoming Suriname on June 7 and Mexico on June 14.

Uruguay is using this friendly as preparation for Qatar’s 2022 FIFA World Cup.
