Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz secured a 1-all draw against Costa Rica at the National Stadium tonight but the result wasn’t enough to keep them in contention of qualifying for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.

Local-based Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson scored in the 90th minute to hand the Reggae Boyz their second draw inside five days.

Randall Brenes had given Costa Rica the lead in the 74th minute.

With the draw, the Reggae Boyz climbed to four points but remained bottom of the six-team table with two matches to go.

Costa Rica moved to 15 points but slipped to second position as the United States beat Mexico 2-0 at the Columbus Crew Stadium to take a one-point lead.

At the end of the qualifiers, the top three teams will qualify directly for Brazil, while the fourth-place team will need to win a home-away series against the winner of Oceania, New Zealand, to secure a berth in next year's World Cup.
