JOBI McANUFF gave a ‘man of the match’ performance as Jamaica eased pass Antigua and Barbuda 3-0 on a Friday evening in the Caribbean Cup game.
The winger played 83 minutes with the Jamaica Observer commenting: “McAnuff continued his talismanic performance in the midfield, dribbling, scheming, orchestrating cute one-two passes and having a go at goal himself at times.”
McAnuff played again on Sunday as The Reggae Boyz then beat Haiti 2-0 to progress to the Caribbean Cup Final to face Trinidad & Tobago be played tomorrow (Tuesday).
In the first game last week McAnuff impressed as he played the full 90 minutes in their opening Caribbean Cup game which ended 1-1 with Martinique.
