USA vs Jamaica score, result as Haji Wright rescues putrid USMNT in extra-time of Nations League semifinal

It was supposed to be the time to turn on the afterburners. It was supposed to be the final stretch before this summer’s Copa America. It was supposed to be when the U.S. starts to look its best.

Yet with one of the fittest, strongest senior squads of the last few years, and against a Jamaica team missing a host of key players, the USMNT produced one of the most uninspiring, miserable performances in recent memory.

That’s the biggest takeaway from the 120 minutes in Arlington on Thursday, not the fact that the U.S. topped the Reggae Boyz 3-1 in extra-time to advance to the CONCACAF Nations League finals. This match represents one of the greatest gulfs between performance and result as you will find, even in March where “survive and advance” is at the forefront of everyone’s mind.

The end result was nothing short of pure fortune. Jamaica scored 31 seconds into the game through Gregory Leigh as the U.S. fell asleep off the kickoff, and the Reggae Boyz rode that early gut-punch to the precipice of victory. The visitors ground the U.S. attack to a complete halt across the entirety of the game, and the United States looked completely devoid of innovative ideas.

It took a last-gasp equalizing own-goal off the head of Cory Burke with the last touch of the game just to save the U.S. from outright defeat, before substitute Haji Wright snagged an extra-time brace to put the U.S. through into the final. Gio Reyna was exceptional off the bench, but even his creative spark had little effect until the U.S. stumbled upon its late lifeline.

The early goal allowed Jamaica to bunker and defend, and while Tim Weah was serviceable in the first half and Reyna’s addition was positive, the U.S. had no attacking force with which to lean on. 

Regardless, the U.S. will have a chance at redemption as they advance to the Nations League finals on Sunday, still with a chance to defend their title. They will play either Mexico or Panama, who meet in the second semifinal this evening.

USA vs Jamaica post match analysis

Gregg Berhalter has to figure out attacking a 5-4-1 formation

In his post-match press conference, Gregg Berhalter wasn’t shy about how the 5-4-1 formation Jamaica deployed tonight has frustrated the U.S. not just in this match but many times before.

“The worst thing you can do against a 5-4-1 is give up an early goal,” Berhalter said, before admitting their late equalizer was “miraculous.”

“You need to be switched on, and then it’s patience and perseverance. We had how many, 940 passes in the game? So we had enough, to me it’s all about what you’re doing in wide areas, you have to draw them out of position. And there were moments to counter-attack, and you’ve got to be clinical in those areas.”

Given the U.S. could see more of this at the Copa America this summer, especially against defensive sides like group opponents Bolivia, and they have to learn how to cope without relying on fluky 96th minute equalizers to skate by.

Gio Reyna stars for national team again despite club struggles

There’s more than enough evidence to prove that the United States national team is better when Gio Reyna is on the field. At this point, that’s just a fact.

Gregg Berhalter potentially kept Reyna on the bench to begin this game knowing his fitness levels could be less than full given his lack of playing time at the club level, but he’s got to be in the lineup for Sunday’s final. Reyna played two beautiful passes to Haji Wright on both extra-time goals, and even before that, his introduction was a clear positive for the U.S. and he logged a Man of the Match performance.

Berhalter was extremely direct after the match, taking what could be interpreted as a direct shot at Jesse Marsch for the CBS analyst’s questioning of Reyna’s inclusion in camp. “I think I heard or read somewhere, ‘why did Gio get called into camp? Did you guys hear that? Anyone?” Berhalter asked the press conference room with an awkward and poignant pause. “I think he showed why he got called into camp. Amazing quality, amazing talent, and for us it’s about supporting him through the difficult times while adapting to the Premier League, but his quality is unquestionable. He deserves to play on this team.”

He deserves to start on Sunday.

Credit should be given to Jamaica for their performance

While the United States were awful, and only have themselves to blame for the abysmal 95 minutes of regulation, Jamaica left it all out on the field and should be acknowledged. The Reggae Boyz were without Leon Bailey, Michail Antonio, and Ethan Pinnock, arguably the three most important players in the national team pool.

Yet they nearly beat the United States in Arlington by snatching a very early goal and executing a brilliant game plan, looking disciplined as they bunkered to protect the surprising lead. They hounded the U.S. and did well to limit space for creativity, forcing the hosts out wide where they struggle to adjust.

Jamaica fouled well, frustrating the United States without putting themselves in disciplinary danger, and were undone by nothing short of direct intervention by the soccer gods.

USA vs Jamaica live updates, highlights, commentary

FULLTIME: USA 3-1 Jamaica

The United States walk away with victory from the jaws of defeat, as a fortunate own-goal with the final touch of the match gives the U.S. a lifeline, and late roster addition Haji Wright puts the USMNT into the final against either Mexico or Panama.

It’s a fortunate result after a truly miserable performance over the 90 minutes, but credit the United States for sticking to the match and finding what they needed, even if it was, undoubtedly, lucky. The U.S. missed a ton of chances, and looked far from their best in every single phase of the game.

Yet here they are, moving on to the Nations League finals, where they could potentially meet Mexico in what may very well be a hostile Arlington environment.

USA vs Jamaica: Extra Time

119th min: Chance, USA! Andre Blake makes a STUNNING save on Christian Puulisic! The U.S. star gets on the ball at the top of the penalty area, rifling a left-footed shot that’s destined for the underside of the crossbar, but Blake goes full stretch to palm it away for a corner!

118th min: The USMNT has done very well to keep Jamaica from having looks on Matt Turner’s goal, even as their long balls do seem to be causing the U.S. back line problems. They’ve recovered very well when Jamaica get space, and Turner’s goal mouth so far has looked safe.

109th min: GOAL! USA! That’s that for the United States, as Haji Wright puts it away with the U.S. now up 3-1! It’s a sensational finish, as the ball initially got stuck at his feet, but he improvises by turning 270 degrees and roofing it with his right foot!

It’s another assist for Gio Reyna as well, who’s been fantastic off the bench in this match. Man of the Match for the U.S. no doubt.

106th min: Chance, Jamaica! Oh my, the U.S. nearly concedes straight from a kickoff again, as the substitute Kaheim Dixo gets in behind down the right, but he flubs his shot horribly straight to Matt Turner. The offside flag eventually goes up.

Halftime: The United States are now in complete control, and Jamaica will have to do something to get forward, which they haven’t had to do all match. The U.S. will be under pressure over these final 15 minutes, but it’s hard to imagine Jamaica have what they need to generate chances based on what we’ve seen in this match.

105th min: Chance, USA! After flicking on the corner that resulted in the last-gasp own-goal, Miles Robinson nearly gets a goal of his own as he heads just wide off another set-piece here. So close to putting the game away!

100th min: Well sure enough, just as we suspected, Johnny Cardoso will come on for Tyler Adams, as the U.S. captain is protected on his way back from injury. With the Copa America coming this summer, winning is of paramount importance today, but there are one or two things even more important than that, and keeping Adams healthy is one of them.

Adams is extremely upset about it on the touchline, which is a good sign, but Gregg Berhalter puts his arm around him and says hey, this is what we have to do.

Jamaica also makes a sub for a sub, as Corey Burke comes off for Romario Williams, while Kaheim Dixo replaces their first-minute goalscorer Gregory Leigh.

96th min: GOAL! USA! HAJI WRIGHT HAS PUT THE U.S. IN FRONT! Gio Reyna with a special pass to thread Wright through free on goal, and he finishes with the left to take the lead!

Wright, who is in great form at Coventry City in England, only made the squad after Josh Sargent withdrew due to injury. He’s made good on that move by Gregg Berhalter!

93rd min: There’s a very interesting storyline developing here, with Tyler Adams rated for 30-45 minutes according to Gregg Berhalter before the match. Adams came on in the 63rd minute, so will Berhalter protect his captain on his way back from a long-term hamstring injury?

Kickoff: Well, the U.S. couldn’t have waited any longer, but with the last kick of the game they find the necessary goal, and we’re headed to 30 more minutes of this game. That goal changes the narrative considerably, but there’s still plenty to improve. Can they find another?

USA vs Jamaica: Second Half


Matt Turner comes up for a corner in the sixth of five added minutes, as Miles Robinson heads in the delivery! What a lifeline, amidst one of the sleepiest performances in recent USMNT memory! In fact, it’s an own goal off Corey Burke as Robinson’s header goes laterally and deflects off Hector’s head into the net!

The U.S. absolutely do not deserve a chance to win this match, but they’ll get one anyways as we go to extra time!

90+1 min: Chance, USA! The U.S. finally create a dangerous moment, as a cross from deep on the left ends up behind Ricardo Pepi, and as he tries to contort his body in the opposite direction of his own momentum, he slips and fails to get good contact. It’s technically a shot on target, but the ball just loops into the waiting arms of Andre Blake.

Bobby De Cordova-Reid exits for Jamaica, replaced by Tayvon Gray.

88th min: A good ball in by Brenden Aaronson is cleared awkwardly by Gregory Leigh out for a corner, but the delivery is headed out of danger. Gio Reyna tries to crash the clearance with a powerful shot but it’s fired miles off target. Another opportunity goes begging and the U.S. are almost out of time. In truth, they’ve been out of ideas for quite a while.

Five minutes of added time are eventually shown.

86th min: Nothing has happened over the last 10 minutes, as the U.S. has no idea how to break down this Jamaica bunker. Brenden Aaronson has a really poor moment where the ball bounces in front of him in the penalty area in acres of space, but instead of attacking the Jamaica defense, he screams at the referee for a handball and loses possession. Just cannot happen. The U.S. are in la la land.

75th min: Another sub for the U.S. as Brenden Aaronson enters for Malik Tillman. Everything has been extra sluggish since the 60th minute. The U.S. needs some kind of spark, because right now they look to be asleep.

69th min: Now Bobby Reid finds himself booked for a foul on Gio Reyna, which gives the U.S. a set-piece chance from about 26 yards out. Reyna and Malik Tillman stand over it, and it’s Tillman who takes with his right, blasted miles over the crossbar. Wasteful yet again from the United States.

66th min: Chance, Jamaica! Oh my, Kasey Palmer with a miss of the century candidate! Lucky for him, the flag goes up for offside, but Bobby De Cordova-Reid’s lateral feed found Palmer all alone at point-blank range, but he skies it over the crossbar. That’s a truly abysmal miss, but it wouldn’t have counted anyways.

65th min: Chance, USA! Haji Wright fires wide! The substitute is played in by Gio Reyna, but from a tight angle on the left, his shot is dragged along the face of goal and ends up on the other side of the far post.

Jamaica make a change, with midfield destroyer Daniel Johnson entering the field of play.

63rd min: Chance, Jamaica! Renaldo Cephas gets in behind Chris Richards and is free on goal! Thankfully for the U.S. he doesn’t catch the shot properly, and it’s fired off target! Wow, the U.S. has gotten away with one there.

60th min: Tim Weah has a go from a tight angle that’s blocked behind for a corner, and then moments later Weston McKennie fires high from a deep central area.

Gregg Berhalter makes a triple change, bringing on super-sub Ricardo Pepi as well as Tyler Adams and Haji Wright. Yunus Musah, Tim Weah, and Folarin Balogun. Taking off Weah is certainly a choice……he’s been the only truly creative U.S. player to this point.

57th min: Chance, USA! Christian Pulisic gets on the ball on the left edge of the six-yard box and goes vertically, cutting an off-balance cross along the goal mouth, but nobody is there to finish it! Great move, but nobody home for the touch!

Every time the U.S. has a move forward, they’re either fouled or slowed. It’s been really tough for them to get forward at pace.

54th min: Now Kasey Palmer is shown the yellow card for fouling Timothy Weah, and you wonder if the game will start to change in the favor of the U.S. if Jamaican defenders have to be careful of a second booking.

51st min: The Honduran referee shows Dexter Lembikisa a yellow card for fouling Malik Tillman in transition, a booking which has been coming some time for accumulation if nothing else.

50th min: Chance, USA! Gio Reyna produces an extremely cheeky flick which catches Jamaica off guard and unlocks Malik Tillman, but he is tackled in the area and can’t get a shot off! How many times are the U.S. going to get in space but fail to test the goalkeeper?

46th min: The second half has kicked off, and Gio Reyna is on for the United States, replacing Joe Scally, who was putrid in the opening 45 minutes. That likely means Tim Weah goes to full-back and Gio slots into midfield, with Malik Tillman moving out wide.

After a few seconds, it appears as if….Weston McKennie has gone to right-back instead? Well that’s new…

HALFTIME: USA 0-1 Jamaica

A truly putrid 45 minutes from the United States, who trail less because of any brilliance from Jamaica and more because of their own failures. The hosts have racked up individual mistakes all over the field, as the movement and ideas are there and they’re finding the openings, but the execution has been truly horrid.

What a mess for Gregg Berhalter to sort out at the break. If he’s ever going to make changes at the break, this is the time to do it, because nobody has been great. If you’re going to pick out one player who performed to standards, it would be Tim Weah, but even he had questionable moments.

Poor passes, mishit crosses, awful finishing, poor decision-making…it’s been really really bad from the U.S. This would be a chance for Gio Reyna, you would think — and sure enough, he’s the lone U.S. player warming up on the pitch during halftime.

USA vs Jamaica: First Half

45+1 min: Chance, USA! Christian Pulisic gets on the ball after good work by Antonee Robinson, but as he dribbles around defenders into a dangerous position, he’s dispossessed at the last second and the halftime whistle blows! How has he not pulled the trigger or made a pass?

45th min: Chance, USA! A miss for Malik Tillman reminiscent of the flub for Christian Pulisic earlier in the half! A Tim Weah cutback finds Tillman making a late run to the top of the six-yard box, but he can’t get a clean shot off and it’s deflected out of play! That’s another huge opportunity, but the finish is extremely weak! Better creativity, but still awful end product.

44th min: Weston McKennie with a very bad giveaway to Jamal Lowe who has a transition opportunity, but a heavy touch under pressure from Miles Robinson forces the ball over the end line. Can’t be doing that.

38th min: Jamal Lowe and Malik Tillman have a chat with the referee as the former fouls the latter, which frustrates Tillman. You’d expect to see a yellow card for accumulation soon as Jamaica are into double-digits in the foul count.

36th min: Jamaica suddenly begins to press quite high, pressuring the U.S. well into their own third, and it’s awkward for a bit but the hosts get out of jail. They don’t advance quick enough to take advantage, though, and Jamaica recover to pack their own area again.

The U.S. has done well to move the ball around and create openings when in possession, but so far they have fallen well short of the required execution needed to take advantage of their creation.

31st min: The U.S. has been better over the last five minutes, pressuring Jamaica hard in the attacking third. The Reggae Boyz have begun to struggle to relieve pressure, with Tim Weah and Yunus Musah doing well to advance play forward and deliver creative passes.

Malik Tillman is down after a clash of heads but gets up to his feet and is ok to continue.

26th min: Chance, USA! Tim Weah takes aim from about 26 yards out and fires a low fizzed shot just inches wide of the left post. He comes close, but in truth, the goalkeeper had the near post covered, and he had teammates in support to pick out. That’s not great decision-making from Weah to waste a good transition play.

21st min: Chance, USA! Oh no, Christian Pulisic has acres of space to shoot, but takes too long to receive the square ball from Folarin Balogun and is closed down at the last moment! The U.S. counter after the ball is picked off in midfield giving the hosts a three-on-two break, but Joel Latibeaudiere is able to get the block in! That’s poor from the in-form Pulisic with a wonderful opportunity, but also the ball from Balogun was underhit as well.

20th min: Chance, Jamaica! Renaldo Cephas forces a save from Matt Turner, cutting inside on his right and shot-faking three times before finally letting loose with a bouncing effort on target. It’s relatively simple for Turner, but a bit awkward thanks to the hop. An impressive job from Cephas to create the opportunity himself but had no room for the shot.

17th min: Chance, USA! Folarin Balogun heads a chance over the crossbar! It’s an awkward one for the U.S. striker, having to reconfigure his body to get his head on Joe Scally’s cross behind him. It comes on a good counter, but that cross has to be better.

It’s given as a corner, with the ball deflecting off the head of a defender, but the delivery is wasted as it goes way over everyone. A minute later Malik Tillman wastes a cross as he can’t get any air on it. The U.S. playmakers are playing so incredibly sloppy right now.

12th min: Joe Scally picks up an early booking after pulling down Renaldo Cephis by his neck to stop a Jamaica breakaway. It’s been a very poor start for Scally, who has not done well to take his chance with Sergino Dest suspended.

9th min: Jamaica have, as expected, packed it in now that they have an early lead. The U.S. has had almost all the early possession since the opening goal, but haven’t created much outside of Balogun’s chance a few minutes ago.

Yunus Musah in particular has been very sloppy in possession in the opening minutes. Tim Weah wastes a move forward with an ugly cross well over everyone’s head.

4th min: Chance, USA! Folarin Balogin has the first look on goal for the hosts, cutting onto his left foot and finding some space, but it’s closed down at the last moment and blocked out for a corner by Lembikisa. If he can get a few more of those opportunities you’d back the U.S. striker to find the net.

1st min: GOAL! JAMAICA! A GOAL FROM JAMAICA IN THE FIRST MINUTE AND THE US ARE STUNNED! Gregory Leigh has his first international goal essentially from the kickoff, as a throw-in from the right flank gets behind the U.S. defense and Leigh gets up above Joe Scally at the back post for the header.

How will the U.S. respond after being punched in the mouth from the opening whistle?

Kickoff: They’re under way from Jerry World in Arlington! A spot in the Nations League final is on the line, and a possible date with Mexico at that. Speaking of, looks like El Tri fans might be crashing the semifinal party, which could present a bit of a hostile atmosphere for the USMNT.

USA vs Jamaica: Pre-match commentary, analysis, stats, and more

15 mins to kickoff: The start of this match is right around the corner! The last time Jamaica beat the U.S. in a competitive match was the infamous 2015 Gold Cup semifinal in which the U.S. went down 2-0 before halftime and couldn’t muster a comeback. That’s one of three all-time wins for Jamaica over the United States. How will this one finish?

30 mins to kickoff: The U.S. will wear its new kits for the first time, the red white and blue tops which are a slight call-back to the popular bomb pop design from a few years ago.

It’s a really nicely designed kit, although on a personal level I wish the diagonal slash between colors was a little higher up so you got a bit more red. That’s a nitpick though, it’s a solid look for this summer’s Copa America.

45 mins to kickoff: The U.S. lineup is in, and there are a few surprises. Malik Tillman and Miles Robinson all start over Gio Reyna and Tim Ream. Sergino Dest is suspended, replaced by Joe Scally. It’s a 50th cap for Weston McKennie at just 25 years old.

For Jamaica, head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson has set up in a five-back system, installing an extra defender in Di’Shon Bernard of Sheffield Wednesday. He has also picked a surprise choice up front, turning to Renaldo Cephas as the lone striker, who plays for Ankaragucu in Turkey and has just one international cap.

1 hour to kickoff: We continue to await lineups from Arlington, but one USMNT player who will surely be starting is Weston McKennie, who has been exceptional at the club level this season, with his hard work has impressing Gregg Berhalter. His performances on the field are the culmination of true faith in his own abilities, Berhalter says, as McKennie returned this past offseason from a failed loan spell at Leeds to a situation that would have seen most players bail for a new home.

”We can’t say enough about Weston and his growth over the last years,” Berhalter said. “Weston was in a situation where he went back to Juventus after the summer and he didn’t have a locker, and he didn’t have a parking spot. Most players would say ‘ok I’m done I’m leaving this club, it’s not for me,’ and Weston said ‘I’m going to dig in and prove that I belong.’”

McKennie stuck it out, and he’s proven vital to Juventus. He has become undroppable for head coach Massimiliano Allegri, with 29 starts on the year and nine assists across all competitions. McKennie has yet to score a goal, but that’s far from what his duties entail.

1 hour 15 mins to kick: There is turmoil within the Jamaica camp. In-form Aston Villa playmaker Leon Bailey was suspended for this international break by head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson for a curfew violation, and while the boss said he will be available for selection in the Copa America this summer, Bailey responded by saying he will step away from international duty.

Bailey said the Jamaica federation is organized in a “very unprofessional” manner, has equipment issues, and claims “I don’t remember the last time I received a dollar from the national team.” One disciplined player’s opinion on the subject isn’t exactly gospel, but there are definitely questions to be asked of the federation.

1 hour 30 mins to kick: While a record number of Americans have scored in Europe this season, there’s nobody having quite the season that Christian Pulisic is. The 25-year-old has logged 20 goal contributions for AC Milan, leading the club across all competitions, and he has bagged a goal in four straight games for the first time in his professional career. Before this streak, he’d never even had three in a row — entering the international break in scorching hot form.

We’ve backed him to find the net tonight as well, you can access our predictions for this match by clicking here.

1 hour 45 mins to kick: With fitness often comes form, and many U.S. are experiencing that this season. A record 12 American internationals have scored at least one goal in Europe’s top five leagues this campaign. Christian Pulisic leads the way as AC Milan’s leading goal scorer, while Folarin Balogun leads the line for AS Monaco in France.

The surprising part is that a number of defenders have contributed to the total as well, including Chris Richards, Tim Ream, Joe Scally, and John Brooks. Johnny Cardoso (video below) and Luca de la Torre have also found the net from midfield, in what is becoming quite the season for the U.S. in Europe.

2 hours to kickoff: Gregg Berhalter has not had this level of squad availability in a very long time. Tyler Adams is back, and while he’s expected to play limited minutes as they ease him back into action after a long injury layoff, Berhalter spoke about the importance of simply reintegrating the captain back into the side.

“We know he’s not going to be a starter in these two games, but can we get him back with this group,” Berhalter told CBS Sports while revealing the March squad. “Chemistry, leadership … he brings both of those things, so can we get him back and playing some minutes.”

Later, in his media availability, Berhalter repeated the same. “They think at [Bournemouth] that he has enough to play 45 minutes for us, so once we heard that, we jumped at that idea because he means so much to the team on and off the field. It’ll be nice to get him back.”

USA vs Jamaica lineups, team news

It has been a long time since Gregg Berhalter has enjoyed a USMNT with this clean bill of health. Most notably, captain Tyler Adams is back with the squad for the first time in over a year, finally healthy from his long bout with hamstring issues.

Adams is not quite ready to start, having only just returned for Bournemouth, but Berhalter said he is rated for 30-45 minutes, while the player claimed he can go 60 minutes if required. They’re understandably taking it slowly after an arduous recovery with multiple setbacks.

The only players out injured are the two who withdrew from the squad: midfielder Luca de la Torre and forward Josh Sargent. Otherwise, only fringe striker Daryl Dike was unavailable for selection. The entire first-choice XI should be ready to start, outside of Sergino Dest who is in the squad but suspended for the first match thanks to his red card in the last Nations League game.

USA starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Turner (GK) — Scally, C. Richards, M. Robinson, A. Robinson — McKennie, Musah — Weah, Tillman, Pulisic — Balogun.

USA subs (11): Horvath (GK), Callender (GK), Ream, McKenzie, Lund, Cardoso, Adams, Reyna, Aaronson, Pepi, Wright.

Jamaica are missing a number of key players in a very weakened squad. Most notably, in-form Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey is not with the team after he was disciplined by head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson for a curfew breach last camp.

Also absent for Jamaica are Michail Antonio (withdrew, undisclosed), Ethan Pinnock (injured, ankle), and Amari’i Bell (injured, hamstring), plus Demarai Gray who is in the squad but unavailable for this match after a red card in the quarterfinals left him suspended.

Another notable absentee is 18-year-old Sheffield Wednesday striker Bailey Cadamarteri, who was called up to the squad but chose instead to accept an invite to the England U-19 squad as he delays his international committment.

Jamaica starting lineup (5-4-1): Blake (GK) — Lembihisa, Bernard, D. Lowe, Hector, Leigh — De Cordova-Reid, Palmer, Latibeaudiere, J. Lowe — Cephas.

Jamaica subs (9): Davis (GK), Waite (GK), King, Gray, Anderson, Dixon, D. Johnson, R. Williams, Burke.
