Do or Die in Kingston for Cummings and Jamaica

I know all eyes will be on Commerce City for next Wednesday's US World Cup qualifier against Guatemala but spare a thought for Jamaica and Colorado Rapids' Omar Cummings as the Reggae Boyz take on Canada in Kingston in a crucial match. While the US has already qualified for the next round of World Cup qualifying, Jamaica have to beat Canada at home while hoping, in reality, that Mexico beat Honduras away. The Reggae Boyz are simply too far behind on goal difference for them to hope they will get through if there is any other result in Honduras. We wish Omar and the rest of the talented squad, which includes several Premier League players, the best of luck. I would personally love to see Jamaica in the World Cup, especially with former England great, John Barnes, at the helm and Omar playing. Here's a link to the full squad listed in one of Jamaica's premier newspapers.
