Jamaica are sitting third in Group C with a -1 goal difference after their 1-0 loss to Venezuela. They are only ahead of Uruguay in the Group who have a -2 goal difference after their 3-1 loss to Mexico.
SCENARIOS IF JAMAICA LOSES TO MEXICO:
If Venezuela beats Uruguay and Mexico beats Jamaica, Jamaica will be eliminated from the tournament.
However If Uruguay beats Venezuela and Jamaica loses to Mexico, Jamaica would still have a chance, but fate would not be in their own hands as they would need Mexico to beat Venezuela in the last game of the group and Jamaica would need to beat Uruguay.
Despite these possibilities, The Reggae Boyz are only thinking about winning and they want to put to bed their result against Venezuela with a win over Mexico.
Both teams are in the CONCACAF region and they meet each other either in friendlies, World Cup Qualifiers and the CONCACAF Gold Cup. This is the first time both teams are playing each other in the Copa America tournament.
