Mexico defeated Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on Sunday, July 26, delivering a crushing blow to the excited Jamaican fans who cheered on their team in a match that was too brutal to watch.
In what appeared to be a lopsided pairing, Mexico scored all three goals before Darren Mattocks mercifully spared the Reggae Boyz the embarrassment of total annihilation by scoring Jamaica’s lone goal in the seventy-ninth minute.
But Mattocks’ efforts were too little, too late and Jamaican fans who crowded into the stadium, eager to see glimmers of the dominant team that trounced the USA men’s team, were denied their desired outcome.
As Mexico’s fans celebrated jubilantly, Jamaica’s fans ended up shell-shocked, leaving the stadium dejected, angry and bitterly disappointed, asking themselves the perennial question: What’s next for the Reggae Boyz?
