The former Jamaica captain was also full of praise for his players and gave the overall performance of the team a passing grade of eight from 10. “I think we could look at an eight with this team but probably more importantly the good players played well,” he said. He singled out World Cup veterans, skipper Theodore Whitmore, Andy Williams and Ricardo Gardner for their roles in what was almost, but not quite, an historic occasion for the nation’s football.
