Hallgrimsson believes that his team conceded twice in the first half because they didn’t move the ball well. he also felt the defending was quite slow. However, he feels that the Boyz improved in the second half by being more aggressive. He is hoping to improve the Boyz’s intensity so that they can match tough opponents.
Hallgrimsson said that his team was hoping to win the country’s first Gold Cup. However, he insisted that their main objective is to qualify for the next men’s World Cup.

The Reggae Boyz have shown improvements in the Gold Cup. There is hope that Jamaica is building a team that can compete in the future.

Richards left his mark with a last minute goal against Trinidad and Tobago.
The players will now return to their clubs where they will concentrate on pre-season camps in preparation for next season. The Boyz next match will be against Honduras in September.
