Ethan and Jamaica beaten by Panama in World Cup Qualifying

Qatar 2022 dream all but over for Reggae Boyz

31 January 2022

A 3-2 defeat away in Panama for Ethan Pinnock and Jamaica has all but ended their hopes of qualifying for this winter's World Cup in Qatar. 

It was a perfect start in Panama City with Michail Antonio converting a fifth-minute penalty for Paul Hall's side. However, the home side hit back with three goals in 26 minutes either side of half-time. A late Andre Gray strike did set up a frantic finale but it was too little too late as Jamaica fell to a second straight defeat. 

Ethan played the full 90 minutes to earn his fourth international cap, three of which have come in this qualifying cycle. 

With just four to play, Jamaica are ten points off the Play-Off spot having taken seven points from their opening ten matches. On Wednesday night, they host fifth-placed Costa Rica at Independence Park, Kingston.
