Head coach of Jamaica’s national senior football team, Theodore Whitmore has come under pressure from a former national coach after the Reggae Boyz 1-0 defeat to Mexico in a crucial CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying match last night at the National Stadium.

Geoffery Maxwell, who now coaches at the Premier League level, says the Reggae Boyz suffered last night because of lack of proper coaching.

The defeat means that Jamaica remained bottom of the six-team table on two points from four games.

Mexico, who secured the win two-and-a-half minutes into the second half through Jesus Aldo de Nigris, moved atop the standings.

They are on six points from four games, one ahead of Panama, who have played three games.

The Reggae Boyz will be in action again on Friday against the USA at the National Stadium.

Although there are six games remaining, former Reggae Boyz assistant coach Bradley Stewart thinks Jamaica’s World Cup campaign is over.

The six countries are competing for three automatic places in the FIFA World Cup finals at Brazil 2014.Sports
