12:18 AM ET 02.07 | For the first time in history, the Jamaicans have been able to score a point after a match with Mexico. Jamaica surprised Mexico with a hard-fought effort that resulted in a nil-nil tie in the opening rounds of 2014 World Cup qualifying. Mexico remains unbeaten at home during qualifying, but the team will be disappointed with not picking up the three points for a win. El Tri will look to get back on the right track in their next qualifying match against the United States team that struggled and gave up a late goal to lose to Honduras. Last August, Team USA scored a win against Mexico at Estadio Azteca for the first time.
