Selection of Jamaica sent this Wednesday to the Honduras to the last place of the octagonal final of the Concacaf for the World Cup in Qatar by defeating it at home by 0-2 in a match of the sixth day played at the Metropolitan Olympic Stadium, in San Pedro Sula.
The H has only added three points while Jamaica, which now has 5, moved from last place to penultimate.
Pressured by their local condition and the need to win, Honduras went out in search of victory and exercised relative dominance over Jamaica in the first five minutes, but the rival began to worry with quick counterattacks.
The Caribbean team, with a game of deep pitches from their own area, played the error of the locals.
And soon he began to unsettle goalkeeper Luis López through Kemar Roofe, Junior Flemings and Damion Lowe.
Honduras was trying to get out from midfield, with balls leaking into the area to Alberth Elis and Ángel Tejeda, their attackers at the top, but with a lot of imprecision and even despair from several of their players.
Jamaica, which was also looking for its first win, was still prowling the Honduran area and in the 37th minute took advantage of a defensive oversight and began to win with a goal from Kemar Roofe, and with a 1-0 lead went into the break.
In the second half, the poor performance of Honduras continued to be evident, with few arrivals on the wings, and in the air game their intentions were controlled by the tall Caribbean defenses, who attacked with four men, although without effectiveness.
Honduras’ few shots, besides being soft, were easy for Jamaica goalkeeper Andre Blake.
The Hondurans had more the ball but their attackers seemed to be prey to nerves in the area of the visiting team, which left the catrachos in a coma in the Concacaf tie, sunk in last place with three points in six games.
In minute 78 Oniel Fisher scored the 0-2 in favor of Jamaica against a Honduras with a crowd that was clamoring for the departure of the coach of the Central American country, the Uruguayan Fabián Coito, who was seen, at the end of the game, enter to the field to greet his players, perhaps saying goodbye as their helmsman.
With the victory, Jamaica moved to seventh position, with five points.
