Panama defeated Jamaica 3-2 this Sunday on the tenth date of the octagonal Concacaf, a result that allows him to continue in the fight for a ticket to the Qatar 2022 World Cup and that will help him get motivated for his game against Mexico next Wednesday.
The goals of the match, played at the Rommel Fernández stadium in Panama City, were scored by Javain Brown (own goal, 43′), Eric Davis (51′) and Azmahar Ariano (69′) for the locals, while Michail Antonio (5′) and Andre Gray (87′) marked for the visit.
With this result, Panama regains confidence, after the recent defeat against Costa Rica, and keeps alive the chances of qualifying for its second World Cup, at the cost of a Jamaica that practically says goodbye to any aspiration.
