Not much the goalkeeper could have done against a shot of that quality. It's a hell of a goal, and probably the best yet in qualifying. All square with 67 minutes left. Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 16, 2021 at 5:23 PM ESTNot settling for 1-0The United States hasn't backed down since Weah's opener. The goalscorer nearly added an assist, as Brenden Aaronson dummied over a low cross from the right to find Ricardo Pepi's whose strike from 12 yards was blocked by a Jamaican defender.
Very, very lucky for the United States and Antonee Robinson, who left too much room for a dangerous cross into the area. Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 16, 2021 at 6:08 PM ESTSecond-half adjustmentNo subs for the USMNT, but according to Jenny Chiu on the Paramount+ broadcast, Gregg Berhalter asked his attackers and midfielders to hold a more withdrawn position compared to the first half. That's likely to dare Jamaica to overcommit and be vulnerable on the counter. However, that won't make United States fans' experience this half any less stressful as the hosts attempt to pull off a massive win. Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 16, 2021 at 5:49 PM ESTHalftime: 1-1 After a well-worked first goal by Tim Weah, the United States was unable to find an answer for Michail Antonio from far out.
S. game, Tim Weah opened the scoring between the sides in the 11th minute, finishing off a well-worked combination play to put the United States up 1-0. The U. looked to be in total control of the game until a Michail Antonio wonderstrike from 30 yards out evened the score and changed the complexion of the match. Jamaica suffered a few missed calls in the game, including a headed goal in the second half that was called back for a foul on Walker Zimmerman. Meanwhile in Alberta, two goals from Cyle Larin on either side of halftime set off wild celebrations among the crowd in a match that was played in temperatures in the teens Fahrenheit. Hector Herrera pulled one goal back late in the match and Mexico nearly had a second but for a goal line save by Canada's Milan Borjan.
Despite conceding early, Jamaica has yet to register a shot, much less anything that would threaten Zack Steffen. Starting in place of Weston McKennie, Gianluca Busio has played in a more advanced role than he's used to with Venezia and Sporting KC, but is doing well to emulate the link-up play which has made Yunus Musah so valuable in the past two cycles. It's making the United States very dangerous against a shaky Jamaican defense. Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 16, 2021 at 5:16 PM ESTThis is the Weah!! It doesn't happen often, so cherish these first-half United States goals when you get them! It's been a pretty casual affair through ten minutes. The small crowd and sad vuvuzela ensemble are doing their best to build an atmosphere, but in a stadium this large, it's been closer to the vibe of an MLS preseason match.
S., who were lucky to see Lowe's late finish called off for a soft foul. The United States finishes the window atop CONCACAF qualifying pending the Canada-Mexico result. Stay tuned for recaps from Paul and Sam, plus the second edition of the USMNT Confidence Index! Jeff Rueter·Staff Writer, MLSNovember 16, 2021 at 6:44 PM ESTSay it ain't so, LoweIt's been an eventful second half for Damion Lowe, who has gone to the sidelines three times for treatment since the break. On a corner kick, he appeared to head the ball into the net, but it was called off after he pressed his weight onto Walker Zimmerman's shoulders.
USMNT vs. Jamaica, Canada vs. Mexico: Highlights, reactions and analysis after World Cup qualifiersJeff RueterNovember 17, 2021 at 9:42 AM ESTThe United States men's national team followed up its 2-0 win over Mexico with a 1-1 draw at Jamaica in Kingston and Canada came through with a thrilling 2-1 win over Mexico in a frigid Edmonton on Tuesday.

With Pulisic on the field, the U. should be able to return to a more direct approach to get more out of him, while Acosta should help slow Jamaica's progress in the center of the park.

Cyle Larin scored the opener for Canada just before halftime after Mexico goalkeeper Memo Ochoa spilled a rebound, then added another with an unmarked header off a freekick in the second stanza.
Mexico fought to get a goal back, and it finally arrived with a Hector Herrera header in the 90th minute. El Tri had a great chance to rescue a point in stoppage time, but a flubbed attempt at a finish and a goalline save from Milan Borjan kept the score at 2-1.
