Jamaica's Under-17 footballers will take on regional rivals Trinidad and Tobago in a Group A encounter in the FIFA CONCACAF Under-17 Championships in Honduras today at 4 p.m.

In the group's other games, Cuba will tackle Guatemala at 6:30 p.m. before the United States oppose hosts Honduras at 9 p.m.

The United States lead the group with nine points from three matches ahead of the Hondurans, who are on seven points.

The junior Reggae Boyz are third in the standings on four points ahead of Guatemala (three), Cuba (two), and Trinidad and Tobago (zero).

Jamaica are coming off a 1-1 draw against Cuba and will enter today's contest feeling confident about their chances against the Trinidadians, who have suffered three straight defeats in the tournament so far.

The Andrew Edwards-coached young Reggae Boyz will be going up against a very weak Trinidad and Tobago defensive unit, which has conceded eight goals in the tournament so far.

The Jamaicans have netted three goals in the tournament while conceding four.
