Caribbean football stars lose out to might of Ireland

Two of the Caribbean’s more favoured football teams lost out last night as St. Kitts and Nevis fell to Northern Ireland and The Reggae Boyz were defeated by the R.O.I. St. Kitts and Nevis lost out to a Healy Goal in the 69th minute and a Jones goal in the 86th whilst Jamaica lost to a Graham Barrett first half goal in the 26th minute.
There were a few familiar faces in the Reggae Boyz team including Nottingham Forest’s Marlon King, Charlton striker Kevin Lisbie and Watford midfielder Micah Hyde all performing.

Northern Ireland had had an embarrassing draw in their opening game of the Caribbean tour against Barbados (1-1) but had more fortune against St. Kitts and Nevis.

Keith Gillespie had found the net in the 72nd minute but was ruled offside.

The line up for Jamaica - R.O.I. was as follows:

Jamaica: Ricketts, Damion Stewart, Neil, Goodison, King, Chin-Sue, Hyde, Reid, Lisbie, Fabian Davis, Burton. Subs: Aaron Lawrence, Whitmore, Jermaine Johnson, Langley, Bernard, Dobson, Claude Davis.

Rep of Ireland: Kenny, Maybury, O’Shea, Doherty, O’Brien, Kinsella, Barrett, Alan Quinn, Lee, Morrison, Andy Reid. Subs: Colgan, Finnan, Rowlands, Clarke, Thompson, Holland, McPhail, McGeady, Doyle, Robbie Keane.
