Gold Cup Final: USA 2-1 Jamaica - Morris the hero with 88th min winner!


The United States exacted revenge on Jamaica with a 2-1 win to lift the Gold Cup on Wednesday night. The USMNT were heavily favoured going into the contest although the Reggae Boyz had beaten them in the semi-finals of the competition two years ago. But there was to be no upset this time as a late 88th minute strike from Jordan Morris gave the Americans the deserved victory on a night when Jamaica lost star player Andre Blake midway through the first half. Blake picked up a hand injury while making a vital save on Kellyn Acosta and his replacement, Dwayne Miller, could do nothing about Jozy Altidore's stunning free-kick opener for the US just before the break. The Jamaicans rallied back through Je-Vaugh Watson at a corner-kick in the second half - their first shot at goal - but Bruce Arena's men eventually capitalised on their dominance with a fine finish from Morris two minutes from time.
