In trouble, the United States defeated Jamaica and is in the Semifinals
The Americans’ lone goal came in the 80th minute when Jamaica seemed to have everything under control in the Concacaf tournament.
The United States team rushed to the 2021 Gold Cup Semifinals after beating their counterpart Jamaica in a match in which they took the winning goal down the stretch thanks to a shot from Mathew Hoppe.
It was towards the end of the game that Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake hit a hard blow to the face, which brought in the assists, although both players decided to continue.
With the victory, the United States tied its pass to the semifinals of the Concacaf tournament where it will fight for the pass to the Grand Final and where it will face the surprising Qatar that comes from eliminating El Salvador.

It was at minute 83 when Cristian Roldán overflowed on the right side and took a good cross from the right side that ended with Hoppe’s shot.
Jamaica had options from the beginning when Bobby Reid missed a pair of arrivals in front of the frame that drowned out the cry of goal against Gerg Berhalter’s team in a situation very similar to the one experienced by the Jamaicans on the pitch.
