USA beat Jamaica to win sixth Gold Cup


USA defeated Jamaica 2-1 to lift the CONCACAF Gold Cup for a sixth time on Wednesday. For the second Gold Cup in succession, Jamaica finished second best. They lost to the Mexico 3-1 in 2015.

After a relentless attack on the Jamaican defence, USA finally breached it in the 88th minute when Jordan Morris netted the winning goal.
