Jamaica, whose only World Cup finals appearance was in 1998, are bottom of the six-team group in the final stage of the CONCACAF qualifying competition with four points from eight games.

Hue, who plays for local side Harbour View, has been a Jamaican international since 1999, scoring two goals in 42 appearances.
