Final thoughts: In the quit the sport pretty a lot followed the script, aside from the sad go out of Andre Blake with a hand injury halfway via the primary half of.

Bu, we notion Jamaica would bunker and appearance to counter at pace or snatch a goal on a fixed piece. They did, and their intention got here at a. However to puncture the united states’ momentum.

Likewise, we idea the USA might see a variety of the ball, be patient within the build up and have possibilities towards fatigued opponents overdue on. Indeed, that’s the huge stroke picture of what passed off, but there has been nothing inevitable about how it went down — we have been driven all the manner and ultimately needed a kindly wreck to installation the winning purpose, although it changed into a remarkable end through Morris.

Speaking of Morris, he’s just been telling the submit-sport interviewers how relieved he became to get a intention to make up for dropping his man on the Jamaica purpose, however possibly most significant of fascinated with him will be the reality that he played each sport in this tournament and looks to have cemented his role for the remainder of the World Cup qualifiers.

That’s for another day, however. For now, the united states are the Gold Cup winners, and Bruce Arena can celebrate the first trophy of his 2nd duration with the crew. Thanks for joining me this night and sorry I couldn’t use all of your tweets and emails. Good night.

GOAL! USA 2-1 JAMAICA (MORRIS!)

The ball’s been ricocheting around the Jamaica box a few instances tonight, with out ever breaking cleanly for the US, but this time, as a hopeful Zardes pass is headed clean, it deflects off Dempsey and lands flawlessly for Morris just beyond the spot. He hits the sweetest of first-time pictures through site visitors and the USA lead!

 

Yep. Not massive or clever.

Altidore exams internal within the left channel and is brought down. Dempsey selections up against the ball — this is perhaps 27 yards out left of center…
