With the CONCACAF gold cup just one week away, the Reggae Boyz scored a one win nil over host The United States in a friendly international at the Audi Field in Washington, D.C on Wednesday. Shamar Nicholson who came on as the seventh half substitute in the 55th minute had scored a goal in the 59th minute.
This was Nickolson's first goal for Jamaica at the senior level in his 6th appearance. This is also Jamaica's third victory over the United States at the senior level after previously winning in 2012 and 2015. The Reggae Boyz will now turn their attention to the CONCACAF Gold Cup; they face Honduras in their opening game on June 17 at the National Stadium.
