Jamaica vs Mexico match preview

Will it be the Gold Cup’s record winners or CONCACAF’s emerging new force who advances to Sunday’s Final in Los Angeles?

This is a rerun of the 2015 final, a match Mexico won 3-1 at Lincoln Financial Field, but will this one go the same way?

Well, Mexico were the favourites to win this trophy for a record-extending ninth time before a ball was kicked, and that remains the case with just four teams still standing.

In Saturday night’s quarter-final in Arlington, el Tri proved to be simply too strong for Costa Rica, prevailing 2-0, thanks to Orbelín Pineda penalty, followed by Érick Sánchez’s late clincher at AT&T Stadium.

Mexico last didn’t feature in the semi-finals of this competition in 2005, a fact that remains true.

Now, after el Tri were demolished 3-0 by USA in the Nations League semi-finals last month, interim manager Jaime Lozano and his players are under serious pressure to deliver silverware for the first time in four years.

Jamaica though will not be easy opponents, highlighted by the fact that they held the U.S. to a 1-1 draw on the Gold Cup’s opening night in Chicago.

The Reggae Boyz were actually very unfortunate not to win that match, taking the lead through Damion Lowe’s header, only for the United States to equalise with just two minutes remaining at Soldier Field.

After that though, Heimir Hallgrímsson’s team smashed Trinidad & Tobago and St. Kitts & Nevis, before edging out Guatemala 1-0 in Sunday’s quarter-final in Cincinnati.

Amari’i Bell was the match-winner in Ohio, slotting home his first international goal just after half time.

Jamaica did reach back-to-back Gold Cup Finals in 2015 and 2017, but now, following an influx of English-born dual-nationals, are dreaming of winning major silverware for the very first time.

Who will prevail at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, going on to meet either USA or Panama in Sunday’s final at SoFi Stadium in LA?

Jamaica team news

Having had an extra day to prepare for this match, Heimir Hallgrímsson could name an unchanged XI, with Javain Brown once again chosen over Dexter Lembikisa at right-back.

The fantastic four up front will remain in tact, namely Bobby Decordova-Reid, Demarai Gray, Leon Bailey and Michail Antonio.

Gray made his senior international debut in group phase, proving an assist, while Decordova-Reid scored a stunner as the Reggae Boyz held Mexico to a 2-2 draw at the Azteca in Nations League back in March.

Predicted XI: (4-2-3-1): Blake; Lembikisa, Bernard, Lowe, Bell; Lambert, Latibeaudiere, Bailey, Decordova-Reid, Gray; Antonio.

Mexico team news

Left-back Gerardo Arteaga is available again, having served his extended ban during the group stages, making it a surprise that Jesús Gallardo kept his place for the weekend win over Costa Rica.

Aside from that, Jaime Lozano’s team is very settled, featuring Henry Martín up front, chosen over Santiago Giménez.

Guillermo Ochoa will captain the side in goal, winning his 142nd cap, still 39 short of Andrés Guardado’s national record.

Predicted XI (4-3-3): Ochoa; Sánchez, Montes, Vásquez, Gallardo; Álvarez, Luis Romo, Chávez; Pineda, Antuna, Martín.
