Jamaica vs Canada build-up & previous line-ups:
It feels like a lifetime ago when Jamaica made their only World Cup finals appearance. Renê Simões’ Reggae Boyz reached France 1998 and were drawn in a group featuring two-time champions Argentina, Croatia and Japan subsequently finishing third on three points having picked up one win against Blue Samurai. Chances of ending a 24-year wait look remote after Jamaica’s opening four matches. Theodore Whitmore’s men come into this meeting with Canada with no wins and one draw which leaves them bottom of the current standings heading into matchday five. More concerning, if we stretch back into previous WCQ campaigns, Jamaica are on a eight-game winless streak (six wins and two draws). Also in six previous World Cup qualification meetings they’ve picked up two wins over Canada with the most recent coming in November 2008 (a 3-0 success).
Since that loss nearly 14 years ago it’s fair to say The Canucks have substantially improved. Look no further than John Herdman’s men’s performance at this summer’s Gold Cup when they reached the semi-finals, their best finish since the 2007 edition. That momentum has carried into the WCQs; after four matches played in the Octagonal they sit behind regional powerhouses (USA and Mexico) albeit two points behind the leaders. Canada also remains unbeaten but have won just one of their opening games. A matchday one draw against Honduras, which saw leading marksman Cyle Larin rescue a point from the spot, was followed up with another stalemate against the United States — Larin again equalising from 12 yards — before running out 3-0 winners in Toronto against El Salvador and last time out they returned home from Mexico City with a hardfought point.

- Canada (vs Mexico): Crépeau; Johnston, Vitória, Miller, Laryea; Kaye, Eustáquio; Buchanan, Osorio, Davies; David.

Player to watch: Jonathan David (Canada)
Although he’s in Herdman’s squad there’s no guarantee leading marksman Cyle Larin will feature against Jamaica on matchday five. Across his last 11 international appearances the 26-year-old forward has managed to register 12 goals with nine of those coming in this current WCQ campaign. Whilst sitting out against Mexico the Canadians had Lille centre-forward Jonathan David — who has recently been linked with Arsenal, Real Madrid and Liverpool — leading their line. David played all but four minutes without breaching Tata Martino’s defence. It meant he couldn’t register in consecutive appearances leaving him with 16 international goals across 20 outings. The 21-year-old centre-forward began with a bang having struck 11 times across his first nine games but has somewhat cooled off (four goals in 10 games).
