The key to Jamaica’s victory against Honduras

Jamaica and Honduras starred in the final game of the first day of the Concacaf Nations League, which corresponds to Group B, where everyone else drew without goals, so a victory here would give the group top to whoever wants it most.

With a single goal from Al-Ettifaq striker Demarai Gray, Jamaica defeated Honduras to take the three points.

Controversy surrounding the disallowed goal against Jamaica

Jamaica managed to take the lead on the scoreboard as early as the 6th minute of the game, but due to a refereeing controversy the play was ruled offside. The goal was the work of Bobby Decordova-Reid, a Fulham footballer.

Jamaica went out and Honduras turned on

Although they started with everything, including the disallowed offside goal, Jamaica caused great danger, but it seems that they went from more to less, because as the first 45 minutes passed, the game even turned in the H’s favor.

They almost took the lead before the end of the first half

But in the 45th minute, Chelsea striker Dujuan Richards decided to hit him right on the edge of the penalty area and the ball hit the post. Just barely and they go into the break with a lead.

Palma had the clearest La H

“Choco” Lozano threw a spectacular backhand pass in which he left Palma alone, who drove the ball, and while trying to define the one-on-one, he pumped the Jamaican goalkeeper, but the ball easily went over. The clearest goal for Honduras came in the 57th minute.

Great goal from Gray!

He ran all the way down the left wing and as he entered the penalty area he shot a right foot shot that hit the corner of the Honduras goal and so Jamaica won. There was nothing to do in goal for Edrick Menjívar, who gave his best.
