Jamaica Gleaner / Head coach of the Jamaica senior men’s football team Theodore Whitmore has said that he will make changes to the way the team attacks in this afternoon’s final CONCACAF Gold Cup Group C preliminary match against El Salvador.
Whitmore said at the start of the tournament that each game will be approached differently, depending on the characteristics of each opponent, and he has kept that promise as he will be changing the formation to face the El Salvadorians.
“We will definitely change again for tomorrow’s game,” he said. “We’re gonna throw more players in front. We had one striker against Mexico, but I think, again, based on what we saw from the El Salvador team, we’re gonna play two strikers and two quick wingers. The transition, both offensively and defensively, and speed should be our main focus going into the game.”
Whitmore said that Portmore United midfielder Michael Binns will make way for striker Romario Williams, who plays his club football for Charleston Battery in the United Soccer League in America. Williams started and scored the opening goal against Curacao last Sunday, but was unused in the following game.
The Reggae Boyz followed up a 2-0 win over Curacao and a 0-0 draw with Mexico, meaning they have yet to concede a goal. It leaves them level on four points with the Mexicans, but second in the group on goal difference.
