Reggae Boyz arrive in France
LILLE, France – The Reggae Boyz arrived in Lille, France, a few hours ago ahead of Sunday’s friendly international against the hosts at the newly erected Pierre Mauroy Stadium at 9:00 pm (2:00 pm Jamaica time).
The Boyz arrived via Eurostar about an hour and a half after departing London.
They were met on arrival by extremely efficient officials of the French Football Federation and were quickly escorted by police to their Mercure hotel less than 30 minutes from the rail station.
They enjoyed lunch and are scheduled to practise at 6:00 pm (11:00 am Jamaica time).
All players excepting Jamar Loza made the trip. The young Norwich City striker was unable to receive his Schengen visa in time to travel with the squad.
