KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica and Egypt drew 2-2 in their international friendly at the Matchroom Stadium, London, England today.

Jamaica led  2-1 at half-time but Egypt drew level in the 71st minute. 

The Pharaohs opened  the scoring in the fourth minute of play with a well taken header from a corner.

But Jamaica’s Simon Dawkins scored his first international goal, to equalise in the 27th minute. Some 10 minutes later the Reggae Boyz took the lead through Joel Grant to end the half ahead.
