Really interesting match up on Saturday as Canada take on the Reggae Boyz in what should be a good match up. Jamaica are favourites for the game and they played really welll in their opening game gainst Costa Rica. Jmaica struggled at the Copa America to get anthing going offensively bu t they opened this Gold Cup campaign with two well taken goals and I think they will really fancy their chances against a Canada team that do not have as much quality as Costa Rica. Mattocks Barnes , Mcleary and Dawkins will be the main men going forward and Jamaica have gained confidence from their good result against Costa Rica, a win here puts Jamaica in pole position to qualify for the knockout stages.
Canada really struggled to break down El Salvador in their pening game and they simply mus t be better up front if they are going to have any chance of qualifying for the knockout stages. As co hosts the canadians will have some support for the game but with a lack of quality up front it is hard to see where Canada's goals are going to come from. Ricketts , larin and Akindele started up top for Benito Flores men in the last outing but Ricketts is the only real finisher on this Canadian team.
I was really impressed with how Jamaica played against Costa Rica and at 5/4 I think they represent great value in this game as they match up really well with Canada and Jamaica have already had quality outings against Uruguay , Argentina and Costa Rica in the last month. I think these games will stand to the Reggae Boyz and I am going to take Jamaica to get the win on Saturday night.
