BALTIMORE, Maryland:

VELIBOR 'Bora' Milutinovic is rooting for the Reggae Boyz at the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

"It's very good; they perform very well," the former Reggae Boyz coach said while watching Jamaica beat Haiti 1-0 in a quarter-final at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday night.

" I'm so happy for these guys. Congratulations to the coach. They play excellent, everything was fine," Milutinovic said.

The much-travelled Serbian, who now works in Qatar and has coached five different countries at the World Cup finals, thinks belief is key to Jamaica's chances at the tournament.

"You always have a chance, you have some good players, you need to believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself everything is possible," the 74-year-old, who was coach of the Reggae Boyz from November 2006 to November 2007, said.

Milutinovic coached Mexico (1986), Costa Rica (1990), United States (1994), Nigeria (1998), and China (2002) at the World Cup finals.
