Fan favorite Jamaica need to be taken seriously in the CONCACAF. Two years ago they were beaten in the final by Mexico. This past weekend they earned their revenge over El Tri with a 1-0 win that secured their spot in another championship game.
They will need more than their six goals in five games so far to beat Team USA. If their defense continues to hold they could pull out a late win. Jamaica has only two goals so far this tournament, the fewest in the tournament.
