Match Preview

The start of 2019 heralded an upturn in fortunes for the United States (USA), with a record of: W3, D1, from this calendar year so far. Though the USA are heavy favourites to beat Jamaica comfortably, most of the damage Gregg Berhalter’s men do will likely come later, as five of the USA’s six goals across those wins arrived in the final 15 minutes of play.
By extension, all of the USA’s last four wins have seen them score at least once in the final half-hour. They also scored the winner in that time-zone in their last H2H meeting with Jamaica, which yielded a 2-1 win.
Meanwhile, Jamaica have lost both of their matches played this calendar year without scoring once. While both defeats saw Jamaica lose only one half, there is no comfort to be found in the fact that they last beat a team ranked above them by FIFA back in July 2017.
If Jamaica are to get a shock win, then they will surely need to score first, and go on to at least score a second goal. That is the common characteristic of Jamaica’s last three friendly wins, with the ‘Reggae Boyz’ also winning the first half ‘to-nil’ in those victories.
Players to watch: Jordan Morris (USA) scored in his last clash with Jamaica, netting the aforementioned winner for a 2-1 victory.
Meanwhile, Kemar Lawrence scored in the 88th minute the last time Jamaica beat an opponent ranked higher than them.
Stat attack: USA hold the advantage in the all-time H2H stakes: W15, D8, L2.
Seven of Jamaica’s last nine games have produced over 2.5 goals.
Two of Jamaica’s last three friendly wins have seen them concede between the 46th-60th minute.
The last three H2Hs have seen at least one half won 1-0 either way.
