In 1995 the Zambian national football engaged Jamaica in a friendly international against the senior national team at the National Stadium in Kingston. In November of the same year, the Jamaica senior team journeyed into the Cultural ’homeland’ of Africa (Zambia) as part of a marketing tour that would take the national senior team to every continent over the next four years. The Zambian tour was significant for other reasons. Davies and Earle One Love tell us that:
While planning my exit from the COLD of North America in 1979, I was advised by Winston Chung (who I met in Baltimore) who was responsible for developing/guiding Santos FC of Kingston and St Andrew and schoolboy team Clarendon College to the 1977 Da Costa Cup Title, to make a link with the Santos club when I got home. On my return to local soil, I met coach Jackie Bell and turned out for the Santos FC, trained daily and played for a few months before being offered the coaching post.
