Antonio starts as Jamaica defeat Trinidad and Tobago


Michail Antonio #18 of Jamaica controls the ball against Shannon Gomez #14 of Trinidad & Tobago in the first half during the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup at Citypark on June 28, 2023 in St Louis, Missouri. 

Michail Antonio was in action for Jamaica on Wednesday night as the Reggae Boyz took a step towards qualification from the CONCACAF Gold Cup group stage.

Having drawn with the United States of America in their tournament opener, Jamaica eased to a 4-1 victory over Trinidad and Tobago in St Louis.

Antonio started up front and assisted Damarai Gray’s goal which made it 3-0 with just 29 minutes played, unselfishly squaring for the Everton forward to tap home.

Gray had earlier opened the scoring, before Aston Villa’s Leon Bailey added a second.

While Trinidad and Tobago’s Andre Rampersad pulled one back at the start of the second half, Jamaica had the last word thanks to Dujuan Richards’ injury time goal.

The 4-1 success leaves Jamaica with four points from two games, level with group leaders USA and needing just a point from their final group game to secure their quarter-final slot.

The Reggae Boyz take on Saint Kitts and Nevis in that third Group A fixture in Santa Clara, California on Sunday.
