Jamaica held CONCACAF giants Mexico to 0-0 result in their World Cup qualifying match to earn a first and historic draw at the Azteca Stadium today.
The Reggae Boyz played with maturity and started the match positively with the first clear chance at goal falling to Jobi McAnuff who saw his first time shot hit the post as the keeper was in no man's land and McAnuff got the rebound, but hit his shot straight at the Mexican keeper Corona.
Mexico were kept at bay by the Jamaican defence and when they were breached Donovan Ricketts was on hand to beat away a fierce shot by Giovanni Dos Santos.
In the second half the Mexicans increased the pressure and when the ball fell to Manchester United's Javier Hernandez the ball was caught under his feet and then when he shaped to shoot Ricketts was on hand to keep out his shot as the Jamaicans held firm. As the Mexicans pushed forward to find the winning goal they left huge gaps at the back and Ryan Johnson raced through and was one on one with the keeper, but his weak shot was easily saved by the keeper.
When the fourth official signaled six minutes of injury time this did not faze the Reggae Boyz who earned a deserved draw.
