SummaryEdit

Jozy Altidore opened the scoring for the U.S. in the last minute of the first half with a free-kick from 30 yards which went over the wall and into the top left corner of the net with his right foot.[9]

Jamaica equalized in the 50th minute from Je-Vaughn Watson after he met a corner from the right on the volley with his right foot at the back post from five yards out. With two minutes to go, Jordan Morris got the winning goal with a right foot shot to the right corner of the net from fifteen yards out after the ball broke to him in the penalty area.[10]
