Jamaica's Reggae Boyz secured their spot in the Caribbean Football Union Caribbean Cup final with a 4-2 penalty win over French Guiana in Fort-De-France, Martinique on Thursday night.

The defending champions, who are seeking their seventh hold on the title, were made to sweat after finding themselves behind in the 10th minute when Ludovic Baal gave the hosts the lead.

Jermaine 'Teddy' Johnson found the equaliser after 70 minutes for the Jamaicans, who lost both head coach Theodore Whitmore and Ladale Richie after the pair were shown red cards.

 

Michael Binns missed his effort in the penalty shootout, while Owayne Gordon, Shamar Nicholson, Oneil Fisher and Cory Burke all scored for Jamaica to ensure a 4-2 shootout win and a spot in Sunday's championship game.
