Host nation Jamaica last night secured qualification to the CONCACAF Under-20 finals after scoring a 3-nil victory over Suriname in their second Group B game of the Caribbean Football Union Qualifiers.
The game was played at the Stadium East field.
With the victory, Jamaica joined Cuba on maximum six points from two games.
Both teams have booked their spot in the CONCACAF finals with one set of games remaining.
Cuba secured their berth after defeating Antigua and Barbuda 2-nil in the earlier game at the venue.
Antigua and Barbuda and Suriname are without a point.
The top two teams on points from each group along with the best third place team overall will qualify for the 12-team CONCACAF finals to be played in Mexico next February.
The qualifiers continue today with the final set of Group ‘A’ games at the Waterhouse Stadium.
Group leaders Haiti, who are on the verge of qualifying, will face Puerto Rico in the second game at 5 o’clock in the afternoon.
Trinidad and Tobago will tackle Curacao at 3 o’clock in the afternoon.
