Jamaica’s young Reggae Boyz are returning home after failing to win the Caribbean Football Union's Under-17 Championship Trophy in Haiti last night.



The Jamaicans, who entered the final with a perfect record, were beaten 2-0 by Haiti at the Stade Sylvio Cartor.



Jacques Saul Metellus led Haiti to the championship title with two goals.



The victory means Haiti have ended the tournament with a perfect record.



Earlier in the third place match, St Lucia beat Cuba 2-0.



The top two teams in each group plus the best overall third place team from the two groups will now move on to the CONCACAF stage.



Those teams are Jamaica , Haiti, Cuba, St Lucia and Trinidad and Tobago, the best third placed team.



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