Quite befitting, after 32 year drought, Kingston College (KC) finally lifted the coveted Manning Cup title, beating their long-time North Street rivals, St. Georges College (StGC) 3-2. This was KC’s 15th Manning Cup title.
Dubbed “Clash of the North Street Giants” whenever they meet in football, KC had to come back from 0-1 and 1-2 deficits to eventually score the 2-2 equalizer in the 88th minute and winner in the 90th..
Congrats to the College, the young men, coaching staff, students, and supporters. Big feat.
Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz defeated Panama on penalty kicks in the 3rd place CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match to qualify for France 2019 Women’s World Cup.
The feat almost had to happen… You may remember that Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz qualified for their one and only World Cup birth in 1998… That World Cup was held in… you remember… France…
Congratulations to the Girlz. As for Jamaica’s men’s and women’s national football (soccer) teams, and Jamaicans everywhere, don’t we wish the World Cup would always be held in France?
The Girlz need the support of Jamaicans in Jamaica and abroad, soccer fans across the Caribbean, and well-wishers.
What do you all have to say?
World Cup semi-fnals are set and there is NO Germany (knocked out in first round), NO Brazil (defeated in quarters yesterday), NO Argentina (lost in round of 16)… Instead, you have an all-European affair with Belgium, Croatia, England and France.
Tuesday, July 10: Semi-Final 1
- Belgium faces France – France is a slight favorite
Wednesday, July 11: Semi-Final 2
- Croatia faces England – England is the favorite
Why wouldn’t England be the big favorite they are against an undefeated Croatian team? England surprised everyone by defeating Colombia in the round of 16 on penalty kicks. England typically does not win on penalty kicks.
How did the four teams get here?
- France defeated Uruguay 2-1 yesterday
- Belgium got by Brazil 2-1 yesterday.
- England beat Sweden 2-0 this morning
- Croatia just beat host Russia 4-3 on penalty kicks after being locked on 1-1 in regular and 2-2 in extra time.
Will we see an England – Belgium rematch of the 3rd group-stage match in the finals OR will we see old-school England vs France, or will it be one or two upsets? For the record, I had England because the USA did not make the world cup and, despite up against some great teams, I will still go with England to win. Madness? We will see.
