WHAT HAPPENED? Jamaica took the lead through Damion Lowe's strike in the 13th minute and then Aston Villa's Leon Bailey had a golden opportunity to double his team's lead from the penalty spot. But Turner, USMNT custodian and Aaron Ramsdale's deputy at Arsenal, denied Bailey from scoring from the spot. Baily had another chance to score from the rebound but he somehow managed to put his effort wide with the goal gaping.
