    Anderson hopes for Jamaica recovery

    KINGSTON, Jamaica – In his long-awaited Jamaica debut last month, 34-year-old striker Jermaine “Tuffy” Anderson made a memorable first impression, coming on as a second-half substitute to score the late equalizer in a 1-1 World Cup Qualifying draw against Costa Rica.


    That goal kept the Reggae Boyz’s prospects alive of securing a place in the Intercontinental Playoff against New Zealand for a berth at Brazil 2014.


    With four points from eight games, it is essential that the last-place Jamaicans win their last two qualifiers.  Additionally, they also need Panama and Mexico – both on eight points – to draw or lose their remaining matches.


    “We hope that something will go wrong with Panama and Mexico and they keep butting their toes,” Anderson told CONCACAF.com.  “We have to win, nothing less than a win and doing so by two or three goals will be nice.”


    Jamaica’s last two fixtures are at the first-place United States on October 11 and home against third-place Honduras on October 15.
