The Reggae Boyz ended their CONCACAF World Cup Qualification Group B with another woeful display.

Jamaica were blanked 2-0 by Haiti at the National Stadium last night. The result meant that they finished at the bottom of the group with four points, the same as Haiti, but with an inferior goal difference. Haiti scored two goals and conceded four, while Jamaica had two for and a massive 10 against. Both teams had already been eliminated before last night's encounter.

Haiti won with second-half goals, courtesy of Kevin La France in the 67th minute and Duckens Nazon in the 88th minute to pile more misery on the Jamaicans.

A very low turnout booed the Boyz for their lacklustre performance. Cory Burke who started upfront was wasteful in front of goal, and failed to trouble Haiti's goalkeeper Johnny Placide.

Jamaica, however, started well and pushed back Haiti.

Then early in the second half captain Rodolph Austin's torrid free kick was blocked by Haiti's goalkeeper Johnny Placide.

Jamaica was without head coach Winfried Schaefer who was relieved of his responsibilities by the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) following an incident at the Norman Manley Airport on Saturday night, and assistant coach Miguel Coley was in charge during yesterday's match.
