The Philadelphia Union's Andre Blake and the Reggae Boyz head to Costa Rica tonight to face Los Ticos in what is not technically a do-or-die match for Jamaica, but it certainly is one that they need to get at least a point from. At 2-0-1, Costa Rica is clearly in control of Group B, having beaten Haiti at home and Panama on the road while drawing Jamaica in Kingston last Friday. Jamaica is 1-1-1 and is tied with Panama, who are in second place by virtue of their +1 goal differential (compared to Jamaica's -1). Jamaica still has to go to Panama City to face Los Canaleros and will host Haiti in September, and every point counts in the six-game round robin.
In the last match, Jamaica controlled the possession and did well to only allow two shots on goal, however they also only managed one shot on goal. They will need to be much more aggressive in front of goal and convert the chances they're given if they're going to leave San Jose with three points.
