JAMAICA DEFEATS MEXICO IN SHOCKER

Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz celebrate by praying after Lawrence scored

There was no expectation for Jamaican to beat Mexico, Gold Cup’s top team coming into the semi-finals. Both teams were playing with a lot of players who normally would be on the bench, while stars were playing in other competitions. The commentators were not even mentioning Jamaica in the lead up to the games that they were competing in.

Well as Jamaica coach Theodore Tappa Whitmore stated this match was a “David and Goliath” battle, with Jamaica representing the historic Israelite and biblical youth hero.

The game was hard fought from beginning to end. Both countries took amazing opportunities at goal, with Jamaica’s Andre Blake making some spectacular saves that made him man of the match.
The accuracy of shots on goal was also unexpected, Jamaica achieved a whopping 89% accuracy rate over Mexico’s 79%. Then there was Kemar Lawrence. Lawrence converted a free kick into a curling and dipping ball to go around and over the Mexican wall and score.
This goal propelled Jamaica into the Gold cup final to now face USA on Wednesday.
