Jamaica reach last 8

Jamaica reach last 8

With two wins out of two, the Caribbean side, coached by former player Theodore Whitmore, have made great strides since their group stage elimination two years ago.

The breakthrough came in the 65th minute when Phillips latched on to a neat ball over the top from Keammar Daley in the 65th minute, bursting into the box on the left and firing into the bottom corner.

Phillips doubled the lead when Richards ran to the byline and pulled the ball back to the midfielder who slotted home. Guatemala, who have a point from their two games, still have a chance to progress if they can win their last game against the Grenadians.

Honduras score

Carlos Costly struck a hat-trick as Honduras rampaged to a crushing 7-1 win over Grenada to move close to a place in the last eight.

Grenada took the lead, stunning their opponents with a 19th minute goal from Clive Murray. But the goal, Grenada's first at a Gold Cup, merely served to spark Honduras into life. The Hondurans led 3-1 at the interval thanks to two goals from the lively Jerry Bengston and one from Costly and they didn't ease off after the break.
