Reggae Boyz captain Je-vaughn Watson says the new look Jamaica team set to take on Honduras today in an international friendly at BBVA Compass stadium in Texas, USA, at 8:30 p.m. Jamaica time, is on the right path and he expects an improved performance and a win.

Watson, who was appointed captain when Theodore Whitmore started as interim coach back in September, told The Gleaner the players are united and enthusiastic and are all willing to 'fight' for a win.

 

RIGHT PATH

 

"It's (team) on the right path, even though it's a young team, the chemistry is good and when you have good chemistry you can do lots of good things. If guys are not gelling it's not going to work. Everyone is born Jamaican, they are willing to fight to make sure we win," he said from the team's hotel during a telephone interview yesterday.

"Every game, we try to win so we will try to win because the last game we lost and losing is a habit. So we have to try to win this game and step up the ranking," Watson added.

In the team's last outing against USA, the Boyz spent most of the match defending. But Watson defended his troops' performance and promised an improve display for tonight's contest.

"The last game, we put out a young team against a strong USA team, and the weather we played in, a lot of the guys weren't use to it. But it was a good result and although we wanted to win, we came up short. But we are still rebuilding and we only lost 1-0, but we created a lot of chances and did not capitalise, so we are hoping when we go out tomorrow (today), we can capitalise and score some goals," he commented.
