Former Kingston College Manning Cup football star, Dujuan “Whisper” Richards, made history as the youngest to score in CONCACAF Gold Cup competition.

Jamaica’s Head Coach Heimir Hallgrimsson noted this achievement in his post-match press conference after Jamaica’s victory over Trinidad and Tobago, highlighting that Dujuan only needed ten minutes to score.

Heimir had faced criticism for Dujuan being included in the squad despite the availability of more experienced international players.

Whisper scored his goal with just minutes left in the game in which Jamaica defeated Trinidad and Tobago 4-1.

Jamaica advances to the knockout round after finishing second behind the USA in group A. Although they tied USA on points, USA scored 13 goals to Jamaica’s 10 to win the group.

Dujuan has signed a deal to play for Chelsea FC in the English Premier League when he turns 18.
