Haiti defeats Jamaica on home soil!!!

Jamaica ended a wretched World Cup qualification campaign without a win on home soil following a 2-0 loss to Haiti at the National Stadium on Tuesday.

The result left the Reggae Boyz rooted to the bottom of Group B, finishing on an identical four points as the Haitian team, but behind on goal difference.

The home team was made to pay for failing to put away a number of early chances, striker Corey Burke one of the players given an opportunity to showcase his talent in the absence of several senior players, particularly culpable.

Haiti successfully blunted a Jamaican attack before counter attacking to devastating effect in the 68th minute.  Kevin Lafrance finished off the sweeping move with clinical precision, firing hard and low to the left of Jamaica custodian Andre Blake to give the visitors the lead.

With the Jamaicans looking to pull level they were again caught light at the back as Duckens Nazón eluded the backline to finish off an 88th minute effort.

The result marked the first time in 40 years the Haitians had secured a win over their English-speaking neighbours.  Costa Rica and Panama advanced from the group to the Hexagonal round.
