In the first half, both teams would have some good scoring chances but both goalies were up for the test. Panama would start to put pressure on Jamaica they would have three golden chances to score but they could not finish.

This game would be scoreless at halftime.

Early in the second half, it would be some of the same as what we saw in the first half as both teams would get their scoring chance but could not finish.

Drama late in the second half as Panama Michael Murillo would get called for Hand Ball in the 73rd minute and Jamaica gets awarded with Penalty Kick and Darren Mattocks would bury it for a 1-0 lead in the 75th minute.
