Guadeloupe vs Jamaica: Storylines and Head-to-Head
After making their way from the Prelims, Guadeloupe were beaten in their first group match. Costa Rica dominated right from the beginning and seized an early mistake that Les Gwada Boys must not repeat if they want to survive in the 2021 Gold Cup.
Jamaica, on the other hand, began their journey on the right foot with a convincing victory over Suriname. Theodore Whitmore's side would book a spot in the next round if it clinches the win in this match.
This will be the 12th meeting between these two sides. Jamaica have the edge in the all-time series with five triumphs, while Guadeloupe claimed the win three times, and they've tied on another three occasions. However, the Gwada Boys have struggled to beat the Reggae Boyz since 1989. Will they reverse fortunes this time?
