Reggae Boys-moving up the rankings
Jamaica moved up one place to 56 in the latest FIFA Coca Cola World Football Rankings.

Jamaica are now fifth in Concacaf after being surpassed by Costa Rica, who have risen 12 places to 54.

Jamaica's first international appearance was against their Caribbean neighbors Haiti in 1925. They were invited to the French-speaking Caribbean island by Andre Chevalon, president of the then United Sporting Society and it was for a three-match series between the two countries. Jamaica won all three games by 1-0, 2-1 and 3-0. The following year Jamaica hosted their Haitians counterparts at Sabina Park and won by 6-0. The Haitians remained frequent opponents and it was not until 1932 that their run of defeats was broken with a 4-1 home win in Port-au-Prince.
