Jamaica's Reggae Boyz are guaranteed US$1 million if they beat Mexico in Sunday's final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup tournament in Philadelphia. 

The Reggae Boyz secured their place in the final after a stunning 2-1 victory over dethroned champions and host United States yesterday.

Darren Mattocks and Giles Barnes were the goal scorers for the Reggae Boyz.

Captain Michael Bradley netted the consolation goal for the Americans.

Meanwhile, Mexico booked their place in the final following a controversial 2-1 victory win over Panama.   

Mexico came from behind courtesy of two penalties, late in normal time and extra time to win the match in Atlanta.

At the end of the match, Panama's players charged at the officials, who were escorted from the pitch by security officials.
