Jamaica’s young Reggae Boyz have qualified for the Final Round of the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Under-17 World Cup Qualifiers.

The Jamaicans advanced to the Final Stage after beating Guadeloupe 3-0 last night at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex to win Group One.

Jamaica finished top of the group with maximum nine points ahead of Guadeloupe on six points.

Cayman Islands finished third after beating US Virgin Island 2-0 earlier.

Jamaica now joined Cuba, Martinique and Barbados as the teams who have already qualified for the Final Round set for Haiti in late September.

The CFU Qualifiers comprise five groups.

The winner of each of the five groups will automatically advance to the Final Qualifiers.

The teams are competing for places at the 2015 Under-17 World Cup.
