Jamaica’s senior men’s national team remain sixth on the eight team CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying table after playing to a 1-1 draw with hosts El Salvador, last night.
The Jamaicans are on six points, the same as fifth place Costa Rica and seventh place El Salvador.
Only goal difference separate the three sides.
West Ham forward, Michail Antonio, came off the bench to score his first goal for Jamaica and put the Reggae Boyz in front in the 82nd minute.
Eight minutes later El Salvador’s captain Alexander Roldan scored the equaliser to ensure the hosts came away with a share of the points.
Coach of the Reggae Boyz, Theodore Whitmore, admits he’s disappointed the team wasn’t able to secure the win.
Whitmore says the technical team will be reviewing the tape of last night’s game to see where they need to improve ahead of the USA match, on Tuesday.
In other results, the USA moved to the top of the qualifying group with a 2-0 win over Mexico courtesy of goal from Christian Pulisic and Weston McKennie.
Canada beat Costa Rica 1-0 and Panama came from behind to beat Honduras 3-2.
