Reggae Boyz fire blank in Wales

Wales 0 Jamaica 0 (March 25)

Jamaican flair met Welsh wizardry in a game that had everything except a goal.

Onandi Lowe elbows Paul Trollope
The Welsh played their full part in a night of entertainment marred in the dying minutes when Jamaican substitute Onandi Lowe was sent off for elbowing Wales midfielder Paul Trollope.

Wales seemed surprised at first as the World Cup bound Reggae Boyz treated a rain-drenched Ninian Park to their own special brew of calypso football.

But on chances, the Welsh should have won. Gareth Taylor missed three good chances in the first half, John Hartson missed with a point-blank second-half header, and seconds after he came on as substitute for the West Ham striker, Coventry's Simon Haworth somehow managed to miss completely from two yards as the ball fizzed across the box.

Jamaica were full of tricks but failed to create a single serious chance in the first period, only a 20-yarder from Fitzroy Simpson that sailed over was worthy of mention.
