The United States has dominated the first half of the return leg match against the Reggae Boyz now on in Ohio but it is the Jamaican goalkeeper, Dwayne Miller, who has been the hero for the first 45 minutes.

In the first 36 minutes of play, the US made seven shots at goal with three hitting either the upright or the crossbar.
Miller in acrobatic fashion kept out a shot that was headed for goal around the 20th minute and seconds later, he was called into action again and he delivered.
In another attempt, a Danny Williams shot hit inside the post and bounced out.
“How did that stay out?” questioned one American commentator.
Meanwhile, the stake has now got higher in the Jamaica-USA match as Guatemala has won 1-0 in the other group encounter against Antigua and Barbuda.
This means that Guatemala and Jamaica are now joined on seven points at the top of the group.
Only the top two teams will go through.
