Final score 2-0

Final score 2-0

The Curacao national selection beat Jamaica in the final of the Caribbean Cup on June 25th and, barely two weeks later, faced this opponent again in the first match of Group C of the Gold Cup. Jamaica was certainly intent on setting the record straight and started out energetically attacking the Curacao side. It took Curacao at least 20 minutes to get into the game but the team never reached their Caribbean Cup level. 
In the second half Jamaica's Romario Williams opened the score in the 58th minute of the match. TD Remko Bicentini replaced Antonia, Hooi and Mulder for Gino van Kessel, Felitciano Zschusschen and Michael Maria but to no avail. In the 85th minute Darren Mattocks scored 2-0. 

TD Remko Bicentini team consisted of Rangelo Janga, Jarchinio Antonia, Elson Hooi and Gevaro Nepomucena, Dustley Mulder and Leandro Bacuna , Gillian Justiana, Darryl Lachman, Quentin Jakoba and Cuco Marina and Eloy Room as goalkeeper.

Next match is against El Salvador in Denver on Wednesday July 13.
