Opportunity lost: Reggae Boyz miss chances to put away US

A spate of missed opportunities of the second half in Jamaica’s Concacaf World Cup qualifier at the national stadium on Tuesday saw them coming away with a 1-1 draw.

The Reggae Boyz, who had clawed their way back into the encounter at half time after Michail Antonio (22nd minute), slammed a line drive to cancel out Tim Weah’s 11th-minute opener.

Bobby Reid had the chance to put Jamaica in front in the 53rd minute when a failed clearance fell to his feet, but missed from close range. 

Damion Lowe thought he gave Jamaica the winner in the 82nd minute when he headed the ball into the net but the referee ruled the effort to have been achieved illegally. 

Jamaica now have seven points from eight games this campaign.
