Cristian Roldan praises Jamaica ahead of World Cup qualifier

Seattle Sounders midfielder Cristian Roldan is ready to host Jamaica in Thursday’s World Cup qualifiers, praising the Reggae Boyz before adding that the USMNT is “up for it.”

The United States last faced Jamaica during the CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal on July 25, where the US managed a 1-0 victory.  The Reggae Boyz were not an easy opponent, maintaining an offensive style throughout the matcH.

“Jamaica was really good in that Gold Cup game and I felt like our players were up for it in that game, in particular Kellyn Acosta, who set the tone,” said Roldan, who came off the bench to deliver the telling cross that teammate Matthew Hoppe headed to score.

“Counterattacking is something that we need to do a really good job of in this game, and taking advantage in wide areas.

“In the Jamaica game they dropped off when we tried to run in behind, and that’s just going to create a lot of space out wide. So being able to exploit the wide areas and also getting runners in the box – good things happen when we have a lot of guys in the box. That’s how we got our goal and that’s how we can punish Jamaica.”
