The United States is still on the front foot and causing problems for Jamaica. The possession is there and they are getting width, which besides giving them good opportunities on crosses, is opening up space in the middle. Before long it should result in a goal. In fact, it already should have.
A free kick 30 yards from goal gave the U.S. a great opportunity at goal and surprisingly, Herculez Gomez took it. He took it for good reason, too. The forward hit an absolutely perfect in-swinging ball for the far post that Jermaine Jones had a run at, but Jones inexplicably pulled up a bit short and made a poor attempt at it.
it was a blown opportunity for the U.S. who really should have had a goal by now because Gomez's ball was absolutely incredible. If Jamaica manages some sort of counterattack for a goal, that miss will loom large.
