Brad Evans: Celebrates his winning goal

Brad Evans: Celebrates his winning goal

A last-gasp Brad Evans goal gave the States a 2-1 win in Jamaica, who sit bottom of the six-team table on two points.

On the half-hour mark, USA forward Jozy Altidore headed home Graham Suzi's long ball but Jermaine Beckford levelled the clash a minute from time to send Kingston's National Stadium into raptures.

There was still time, however, for Evans to take advantage of a loose ball and seal the points for America.

At Estadio Nacional, Costa Rica edged out Honduras 1-0 thanks to Roy Miller, who reacted quickest in the 25th minute to head home the rebound after Noel Valladares saved a shot from Celso Borges.

Mexico, who have played a game more than their rivals, missed the opportunity to maintain their two-point lead as they drew 0-0 with Panama.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
