Published on:

Josef Martinez’s early first-half goal in the 15th minute helps Venezuela to start their Copa America 2016 campaign with three points, against the 10 men Jamaican side. Jamaica failed to come back in the second half despite creating chances for an equaliser.

The teams are out on the field.

The Jamaican squad has been announced.

The Venezuela playing xi has been announced.

Jamaica are all set to lock heads against Venezuela in the Copa America Centenario Group C clash at Soldier Field on Sunday.

The performance of both the teams in last 10 matches in all competitions suggests that they need to lift up their game and need to come up with all that they have in their arsenal, to pull up a shocker and advance to the knock out stage.

Jamaica have won 4 matches out of their last 10 in all completions and their Sunday’s opponent managed to win only once out of the same number of fixtures.
