USA Vs. Jamaica, 2014 World Cup Qualifying: Herculez Gomez Goal Puts USMNT In Front

The United States finally have the goal that they deserve. A free kick by Herculez Gomez beat Dwayne Miller and the U.S. has a 1-0 lead over Jamaica in the 55th minute.

The Americans drew a foul from 25 yards and it was straight on goal, giving the U.S. a great chance at goal. Most expected Jose Francisco Torres to take the kick, but instead it was Gomez, who curled it just inside the post. Miller actually got to the free kick and despite a handful of amazing saves in the first half, he couldn't keep this one out. It was a shot that Miller should have saved, but he didn't and while some might call the Americans lucky, their lead is certainly deserved.
