Between the years 1963 and 2015, Costa Rica has won Jamaica on 12 occasions, drawn 10 times and lost only 4 times.
Following the upcoming game on Good Friday, the ‘Boyz’ will travel to San Jose, Costa Rica on March 29 for the return match.
The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) made extensive efforts to change the date of the match as it is to be held on a day considered sacred by many Jamaicans but was unsuccessful as FIFA promptly stated that a change of date was not possible because the 2016 International Match Calendar had been approved since 2013.

Arnett Gardens attacking midfielder Vishnal Harris and Portmore United’s Goal Keeper Shaven Sean Paul are among 4 local based players named in a strong Reggae Boyz squad for Good Friday’s CONCACAF World Cup qualifier at the National Stadium.

The Reggae Boyz will face Costa Rica. The Jamaicans are currently 3rd in the group.
