HOUSTON, TEXAS – After picking up a win in their opening match, Jamaica and El Salvador both look to collect another three points when they meet in the first of two Group C encounters on Friday at BBVA Stadium in Houston.
The match will be the fifth Gold Cup meeting between the two sides and could help decide one of the teams that would advance to the next round.
Jamaica is unbeaten when the two face off in the Gold Cup, with three wins and a draw. The most recent meeting in the tournament was a 1-1 result in the 2017 edition.
