Burton was the Jamaican Sports Personality of the Year - the first time a footballer has won the award ahead of the legion of famous cricketers on the island.

An uncertain finisher at the very top level but his control is good. Nicknamed 'Ronaldito' because of his physical similarities to the brazilian star.

A fast winger who needs to work on his consistency. If his crosses were better then Jamaica could improve on a goalscoring record that is still causing the coach to experiment with the front line. Good close control but needs to get his head up before delivering the final ball. A hard and willing worker who also contributes to the defence of the left side.

The Jamaican player who stands to gain the most from a good World Cup. Very highly regarded in Jamaica as one of their most skilful footballers ever, Whitmore has poise and good control which he uses with the full range of passing.

Jamaica gained full independence within the British Commonwealth in 1962. Deteriorating economic conditions during the 1970s led to recurrent violence and a drop off in tourism. Elections in 1980 saw the democratic socialists voted out of office. Political violence marred elections during the 1990s.
