THE Reggae Boyz agonisingly lost 1-2 in their World Cup Qualifier against the United States last night in a nail-biting game at the National Stadium in Kingston.

The Americans went ahead in the 30th minute after Josmer 'Jozy' Altidore headed in a cross from Graham Zusi.

However, Jermaine Beckford pulled the Jamaicans level in the 90th minute with a header from a Rodolph Austin free kick.

But in the 92nd minute, Bradley Evans sank the Boyz's hope of securing a point with a turn in the Jamaican box which he converted.
