Jamaica Knock Mexico Out Of Gold Cup On 88th-Minute Free Kick Stunner

Kemar Lawrence’s free kick left Mexican keeper Jose Corona dumbfounded as the 88th-minute goal put the New York Red Bull and his Jamaica side past Mexico and into a Gold Cup final matchup with the United States.

Mexico knocked off the Jamaicans 3-1 in the final two years ago, and while the Gold Cup is a meaningless enterprise that features few of each national team’s star players Lawrence’s goal is a stunner in every sense of the word.
