Cummings Nets But Reggae Boyz Not Dancing

I did ask you to spare a thought for Colorado Rapids' striker, Omar Cummings, who played for Jamaica last night in their crucial World Cup qualifier against Canada. Unfortunately, despite a fighting 3-0 victory in Kingston, the third straight win for the Reggae Boyz in World Cup qualifying, they have narrowly missed out on progressing to the final round of qualification. Honduras beat Mexico which meant that Mexico and Jamaica finished on the same points but El Tri go through by virtue of a better goal difference. Heartbreak for Omar and the boys. Cummings came on as a substitute in the 71st minute and managed a goal in the 85th. Probably little consolation for him but we look forward to welcoming him back next season at DSG Park where many feel he will have a big role to play for this club. Here is a link to more details on last night's game for Jamaica.

Oh if only the GD had gone the other way. To think that Omar and his country in the next round in stead of Mexico, now that would have been huge. I am still excited for Omar though, he has proven to be a great player.

Omar's progress from '07 to '08 was very strong. If he can make that sort of improvement in '09 I think his future is very bright!
