The Boyz must continue to win these games decisively to have a chance of qualifying for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup. The competition will also be used as the basis for future World Cup qualifying seeding. The Reggae Boyz play their next home game in this tournament on Saturday, November 17 at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.
