Jamaica, who are third in Group ‘A’, face a must-win situation against second place Costa Rica today in order to get into the semi-finals.

The game is scheduled to start at 5 o’clock in the afternoon and is the first of two Group ‘A’ matches at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex.

The second game starts at 7:30 and features defending champions USA against already eliminated Guatemala.

The USA enter today’s final set of preliminary round games in the group on maximum six points.

Costa Rica are second on three, while Jamaica and Guatemala are on a point each. However, Jamaica are in third spot courtesy of goal difference.
