The USA celebrated a historical win over Mexico beating them for the first time in Mexico about three weeks ago. Today, it was the Reggae Boyz recording their first win ever against the USA in nineteen meetings as they took advantage of a midfield without Michael Bradley and his potential link up with the men on top. As they say something was missing all through the match against Jamaica.
Clint Dempsey defying all match fitness odds put the USA on the scoreboard in a record 36 seconds. But Jamaica came back strongly through two set pieces. A low hard drive by Rodolph Austin deflected off Kyle Beckerman to draw them level. In the second half, Luton Shelton dealt the USA a mortal blow with a perfectly executed free kick which left Tim Howard stranded. Jamaica then held on to their 2-1 margin to create history.
