  • Interesting Game Capsule

    Sounds like Teddy Johnson...before his idiotic red-card move...was having a pretty good game. His replacement on the rightside, J C-Ryce, also had a very good game and custodian Shawn Sawyers was outstanding in goal.
    BTW: Twas another poor turnout for RBZ fans. Check the time line below:

    90: Nigeria try one last go at goal with two minutes added time remaining. Obinna looks like he has been shot and wins a free kick near the corner.

    88: Campbell-Ryce lets a flyer go off his boot, but again a couple of feet wide.

    86: Wolfe turns and shoots quickly, but just wide.

    85: Scary moment for Jamaica as Nigeria broke free, but the Reggae Boyz defence has been very good tonight.

    84: Jamaica have made 7 substitutions so far, just Vernon and Miller not on.

    79: The games is being stretched now as both sides look hungry for a win.

    75: Jamaica nearly stole a goal there with Wolry Wolfe's shot just about saved by Austine, rebounding and Wolfe just couldn't get his balance to follow up with a second effort.

    70: Danny ****************tu takes a long range punt and is about three feet wide. Good effort and worth a try.

    68: If Jamaica come out of this game with a draw they will have Sawyers to thank. He has kept them in it at least three times in the second half.

    67: Campbell-Ryce is bossing the midfield for Jamaica. I think he could have made a real difference in the first half.

    60: Wow! Sawyers is on fire for Jamaica with another outstanding save to keep the Reggae Boyz in it.

    59: Obinna delivers a great corner and brings out a superb save from Sawyers.

    57: Campbell-Ryce goes on a familiar mazy run and completes the move with a long back heel to a Jamaican player, but at the moment it is Nigeria creating the good chances.

    56: It's close again as Sawyers makes a good save for Jamaica. Attendance is 5,078.

    54: Obinna delivers another good free kick and once again Osaze is close to getting the opener.

    52: A back pass lands Jamaica in trouble as the Eagles have a free kick in the area, but the wall does an effective job.

    51: Campbell-Ryce nearly carves an opening for Shelton as he is only just beaten to the ball by the Nigerian keeper.

    50: Nigeria come very close with an Obinna free kick that either Apam or Osaze should have scored and at the other end Shelton one on one with the keeper could have got a goal himself for Jamaica.
    Campbell-Ryce starts the second half.
    Half time

    44: Drama at the New Den. Handbags at high noon with Jermaine Johnson for Jamaica getting a straight red for pushing the linesman and Taiye Taiwo off for Nigeria for some bad temper!
    42: The half is ending with Nigeria pinning back the Jamaican team in their half.

    40: Good build up play by Nigeria, patient and stroking the bal around until Obinna brings down Claud Davis after mis-controling the ball.

    32: Nigeria get a shot on target but it lacked pace and was straight at the Jamaican number two keeper Sawyers.
    You can't help feeling that Campbell-Ryce would suit the type of game at the moment and hopefully he will be on at the start of the second half.

    28: Nsofor Obinna takes a corner that falls nicely onto Osaze head and he gets good contact, but it goes a yard over. At the moment Nigeria's attacks seem to get to the final third of the pitch and break down.
    Currently Nigeria are 40 places above their opponents, but so far Jamaica have the edge.
    By the way the referee tonight is Mike Dean.

    27: A superb run by Johnson created a great opportunity as the ball flashed across goal only needing King to get a touch to score. From the corner the ball nearly came to SHelton to poke in from 3 yards but Austine was first to it.

    25: Austin and Johnson combined well to feed the ball through to Marlon King but the linesman was quick to flag for offside.

    A fast paced opening 15 minutes without either side having a clear cut opportunity in front of goal. There may only be a few thousand in the ground but the noise is fantastic.

    It is a real carnival atmosphere inside and outside the ground. Jamaica are playinging in their familiar yellow and Nigeria in all white.
