Jamaica: 0

Full Time Score

52′ Goallllll!!! First success for the favorite Uruguay. Hector pulls Rolan to the floor, resulting in another free kick for Uruguay, this time just outside of the Jamaica penalty area on the left wing. It’s sent in towards Gimenez before falling at the feet of Rodriguez, who then calmly slots the ball into the bottom right-hand corner of the net from close range.

2nd half starts

39′ Good chance for Jamaica. Mattocks  sprints into the Uruguay penalty area, beating two defenders before unleashing a volley that he completely miskicks and sends bouncing into the feet of Godin from close range.

7′  Uruguay are finally able to push into the Jamaica half of the pitch before Rodriguez breaks into the right-hand side of the penalty area, but Hector is there to dispossess the midfielder with a vital, and strong, interception.
