Mikey on a roll

Mikey Antonio scored his first goal for Jamaica on Friday evening.

The Hammers striker netted a brilliant goal for his country, as he sprinted from just inside the opposition half, beat a defender, and finished over the El Salvador goalkeeper.

Antonio had come on as a substitute, and his goal came in the 82nd minute and was seemingly the winner.

El Salvador hit back, though, as Alex Roldan scored in the 90th minute to steal a point.

Jamaica subsequently remains sixth in the World Cup qualifying group, level on points with El Salvador, and sit eight points behind leaders USA.

They play America next week, in a game that could be vital to their qualification hopes; finishing fourth in the group would mean qualifying for an inter-federation play-off, while finishing in the top three would mean automatic progress to Qatar 2022 next year.

  1. Great to see it- I was beginning to think his teammates weren’t passing him the ball.
