Boyz will bounce back – Austin

first_img SHARING THE BLAME “Everyone will take responsibility and move forward,” he added, while noting there is no discontent in the camp. “It is a good set of guys playing; we go out there and represent Jamaica fully well. Everyone wants to play well, everyone wants to do good. Sometimes it goes bad, and we will take responsibility and improve,” he added. The Jamaicans’ loss has put them under increased pressure to win away to the Haitians as Panama cruised to the top with three points in Group B, while Costa Rica, who beat Haiti 1-0, also raced to three points. “Definitely, we will be looking to bounce back. We have done this before. Everyone put in the right effort,” Austin said. “We are a group; we win together and lose together. We are gonna talk about this, and we are gonna work and give it our all to turn it around and get three points against Haiti.” “Everyone knows what we have to do, and whoever goes on the pitch has a responsibility of doing their best to winning the game, with the coaching staff. We win together, and we lose together. we just have to keep focusing and working hard so we can go to Haiti and change this result,” he said. Admitting that last Friday’s 2-0 loss to Panama was due to a flat performance by his team, Reggae Boyz captain Rodolph Austin says he will be looking to lead from the front and lift his team to a better result against Haiti today. The Jamaicans will today face the Haitians in their second game of the semi-final round of the CONCACAF FIFA World Cup qualifiers. “We came out flat, and everyone knows we didn’t play good tonight (Friday), and we have to take the responsibility for it as a team. We didn’t start the game well, and we conceded two soft goals. We just have to bounce back and focus, and look ahead to Haiti’s game; that’s the plan,” Austin said at Friday night’s post-game press conference.last_img read more
