Higuain’s goal give Argentina the top spot


Jamaica: 0

Argentina: 1 (Higuain-11′)

90′ + 3′ Austin’s in-swinging delivery is headed behind for a corner by Zabaleta! Another set-piece for Schafer’s men…
90′ + 2′ Yellow Card Pablo Zabaleta
90′ + 2′ Zabaleta crunches McAnuff on the left and picks up a yellow card as a result. This will provide the Reggae Boyz with one more chance to gain an equaliser…
90′ We are entering stoppage time in Vina del Mar. Are we going to have some late drama here?
88′ McCleary displays some fantastic footwork to get between Lamela and Rojo out on the right, and he stabs a pass towards Dawkins as Mascherano comes across to close him. His team-mate is unable to control the ball, though! That could’ve been it!

86′ Mascherano fires a pass out to Zabaleta on the right and he squares the ball to the near post for Tevez. However, the striker cannot get his foot around the ball to divert it on target and the opportunity is lost. It’s still very much in the balance at the Estadio Sausalito.

Half Time score: Argentina 1-o Jamaica

11′: GOOOOOAAAAL!! HIGUAIN OPENS THE SCORING! Di Maria tricks his way into the box from the left and uses the outside of his boot to pick out the striker on the penalty spot. He manages to roll away from Morgan and fire a shot into the bottom corner beyond the idle Miller!

Jamaica (4-5-1): Miller; Mariappa, Hector, Morgan, Lawrence; McCleary, Austin, Watson, McAnuff, Laing; Brown.

Argentina (4-3-3): Romero; Zabaleta, Garay, Demichelis, Rojo; Biglia, Mascherano, Pastore; Messi, Higuain, Di Maria.
