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.

“I think this was not only me but the technical staff planned this out in terms of tactically how we were going to approach the game,” Gordon was quoted as saying by the Jamaica Gleaner. Read more.
