Host nation Jamaica will go in search of its second straight victory when the Group One of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-17 Qualifiers resumes today at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.

The Young Reggae Boyz, who whipped the US Virgin Islands 19-0 in their opening game on Saturday, will now play the Cayman Islands.

The match is scheduled to start at 7 o’clock in the evening and is the second game of a double header at the venue.

The first match begins at 4 o’clock in the afternoon and features the US Virgin Islands against Guadeloupe.

Jamaica and Guadeloupe enter the second round of matches locked on three points each, but the young Reggae Boyz are leading the four-team group on goal difference.

Guadeloupe beat the Cayman Islands 3-0 in their opening game.

The CFU Qualifiers comprise five groups.

The winner of each group will automatically advance the Final Qualifiers to be held in Haiti in late September.

The Final qualifiers will be made up of eight teams consisting of the five winners of the five Groups; host nation Haiti and the two best runner-up teams from all Groups.

Cuba, Martinique and Barbados have already qualified to the Final Round.
