‘Don’t give up’—That’s the plea being made by national midfielder and CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh’s Skipper Angus Eve, on the national team’s ‘Journey to Germany’ 2006. The 31 year old attacking midfielder told ‘ttproleague.com’ that the warriors have a realistic chance of still qualifying for the World Cup is 2006, this following the team’s goalless draw against Costa Rica at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on Wednesday 30th March.
Despite the national team, only have one point from their three matches and lie at the bottom of the table, the Jabloteh captain said, “We have more than a realistic chance, our next assignment is against Panama at home and we need to do the business in that game, and we will then be right back on track.”
“I want to thank the fans that came out and supported the team, especially after our demoralizing 5-1 loss to Guatemala, and I believe the team responded by giving a very spirited performance against Costa Rica,” said Eve.
He added, that the point the team gained against the Costa Ricans was extremely important in the larger scheme of things, as it would give the guys confidence going forward in the campaign.
He reminded local football fans, that when Jamaica qualified for the World Cup, they lost their first three matches in the campaign—and he urged the local footballing public not to give up and continue to support the team.
The skillful midfielder ended by saying, “We are still very alive and there is no need for us to press any panic buttons.”
