LUFC Austin World Cup final hopes in tatters

LUFC Austin World Cup final hopes in tatters

Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin saw his hopes of appearing in the 2014 World Cup finals with Jamaica dealt another blow after defeat in Honduras.

Jamaica conceded a goal in each half, losing 2-0 to condemn them to their third defeat in a week.

Austin played the full 90 minutes for Jamaica as they conceded early and late in the game. Oscar Boniek gave Honduras the lead after just ten minutes and they clinched a crucial win with minutes remaining when a poor back pass allowed Roger Rojas to score. Jamaica had to play the last fifteen minutes with ten men when Reading defender Adrian Mariappa was sent off for a reckless challenge.

Derby County striker Theo Robinson came closest to scoring for Jamaica when his effort clipped the post but Jamaica rarely threatened.

Jamaica are now four points off a play-off place with just four games remaining and having played a game more than their nearest rivals.

Their next game is on 6th September when they travel to fifth placed Panama.
