History of the USA vs Jamaica rivalry

Jamaica is not amongst the upper echelon of national sides. In fact, they’ve only ever qualified and played in one FIFA World Cup, 1998 in France. They’ve never won a CONCACAF title either, though in recent editions they’ve finished as high as runners-up (twice, 2015 & 2017). Jamaica have however conquered their corner of CONCACAF, the CFU, on six occasions, making them arguably the most dominant team from the Caribbean.

Despite being formed in 1910, the JFF only became a member of FIFA in 1962. This is due to the country gaining independence from Great Britain that year.

While they may not frequently reach the higher levels of the international game, meetings between Jamaica and the USA are often hotly-contested affairs. Be it in the Gold Cup, Nations League, or World Cup qualifying, it’s usually an entertaining fixture. Games at Independence Park, aka “The Office”, in Kingston, often provide a tough challenge for the USMNT.

One memorable meetup in recent history was the September 2011 WCQ game in Columbus. In addition to a 1-0 USA win, it spawned the “Deuce Face” meme of Clint Dempsey’s mocking facial expression from a scuffle during the match.

Many Jamaican players have played professionally in US leagues over the years, so this adds familiarity for fans of the domestic game.

The first meeting between the two teams was in 1988. The US holds a significant advantage in the all-time series.
