It was a match that Jamaica was going to play as if it were the final of the same World Cup in Qatar in 2022, so it was necessary to appeal to the good collective game based on the brightness of its stars, but ... The United States suffered more on the eighth date of the Qualifiers Concacaf and took a valuable result as a visitor.

Jamaica's tough defense had to be demolished with an infallible strategy in the world of football: the wall. Ricardo Pepi pivoted to perfection and handed the ball over to Timothy Weah as he passed the Jamaican defenders and made it 1-0 for the United States.

When it seemed that the USMNT had everything to crush and thrash its rival, Jamaica stuck out its chest, and showed why the North Americans are not more than the rest in Concacaf. It was thus, that it obtained the tie that finally was decisive.

Mexico had it more difficult, it is true. But it is also true that the obligations were different. By losing the classic last week, no other idea was to be considered than adding 3 to 3, against a direct rival such as Canada. Not only did that not happen, but he had to settle for the discount at the last minute, so that the screen does not show a very bulky result.
