Jamaica vs. United States World Cup Qualifying: When Last We Met... a measure of vengeance, and three big points.

Last September, the USA played Jamaica twice in quick succession in the penultimate round of CONCACAF's World Cup qualifying tournament. Both teams would progress to the final round, and tonight, they meet for the first of two match-ups. Let's take a look back at what happened last time they played.

Luckily things went better in Columbus than they had just days before in Kingston. After losing 2-1 on the road, the United States Men's National Team needed a better result - and a better performance - from the return fixture in Colubmus, Ohio. And on September 11, they got both. The first half saw the Yanks pepper Jamaica's goal, hitting the woodwork three times in the first half hour.

But the USA were unable to break through until the 55th minute, thanks to a Herculez Gomez free kick from 30 yards that found its way into the back of the net, despite 'keeper Dwayne Miller getting two hands on the shot. It was the one mistake in an otherwise otherworldly performance by Jamaica's man between the sticks.

Tonight, Juergen Klinsmann's men will be hoping to replicate their performance in Columbus last September - and from last weekend at RFK against Germany - and avenge their last visit to Jamaica's capital.
