VIENNA, Austria – A determined Jamaica side held World Cup hosts Qatar to a 1-1 draw behind closed doors on Friday to wrap up their involvement in a four-nation tournament in the Austrian capital.

Jourdaine Fletcher (above) gave the Reggae Boyz the lead on 70 minutes, but Khaled Muneer equalized seven minutes from time as the new-look Jamaica squad ended the tournament with one draw and one defeat – a 3-0 reverse against Morocco – after Ghana arrived too late for the scheduled opener.

National senior men’s stand-in head coach Merron Gordon said he was pleased with the threat his inexperienced team – captained by Adrian Mariappa, a defender with Australian club Macarthur – showed in front of goal.
