Jamaica's football history
Reggae Boyz Forum
Former Technical Director, Brazilian Rene Simoes, discovered the talented but still unproven Ian Goodison in 1996. He took the gutsy defender from the minor leagues and introduced him straight into the national squad where he remains a permanent fixture.
'Pepe' is the best man-marker in the Reggae Boyz squad. He is a strong tackler, and though his pace is not his finest asset, he makes up for this shortcoming with good positioning and a keen understanding of the game. He covers well for other defenders, and has made several crucial goal-line clearances and goal-saving tackles.
He is also a capable goal scorer, especially from set pieces, and has scored a number of vital goals for Jamaica. The goal in Kinston against Mexico in 1996, is without a doubt the most memorable of the lot. It gave Jamaica their first ever victory over the CONCACAF kingpins, and allowed the Reggae Boyz to top the group going into the final qualifying round.
Goodison represented Jamaica at the World Cup finals in France. He started all three games, and had the honor of captaining the team to its historic victory over Japan.
