[JAMAICA-USA] Brad Evans, who was not even on the initial roster Jurgen Klinsmann announced for the June qualifiers, scored on a delfection in stoppage time to give the USA a 2-1 win over Jamaica, its first ever victory over the Reggae Boyz in World Cup qualifying in Kingston. The goal, which temporarily put the USA in first place, came after Jamaica had scored a shock equalizer in the 89th minute on a goal by Jermaine Beckford.

The USA took a 1-0 lead when Graham Zusi beat his marker and sent in a cross from the right wing that Jozy Altidore headed home to give the USA a 1-0 lead in the 30th minute.

Michael Bradley, who set up Evans' winner, had hit the post in the first 90 seconds of the game. Jamaica came close when Rodolph Austin hit the post late in the first half.

The USA fielded the same starting lineup that started in Sunday's 4-3 win over Germany. It will need to make at least one change against Panama Tuesday in Seattle.

Zusi picked up a yellow card on the play that led to Beckford's temporary equalizer and will sit out against the Canaleros for yellow-card accumulation.

Jermaine Jones came off after suffering a head injury in the second half.

    You need to fix your Tuesday, June 11 schedule. The US is playing Panama, not Honduras.
