Gold Cup: The best USA-Jamaica matchups of all time

Yanks undefeated in 17 games vs. Reggae Boyz; here are the top 3
Best of USA-Jamaica

The US national team is preparing to square off against Jamaica for the 17th time on Sunday in the quarterfinals of the Gold Cup, and if history has any say, the Yanks should be just fine.

The USMNT is undefeated all-time against the Reggae Boyz, boasting an impressive 9-0-8 record. But while history may be on their side, this is certainly not the same Jamaica team Americans have traditionally tamed.

WASHINGTON — The last time D.C. United hit the road, a two game road trip to Portland and Los Angeles yielded four points.

Zayner eager to shake injury

WASHINGTON — It’s been a long, frustrating and injury-plagued season for D.C. United defender Jed Zayner in 2011.

A hamstring injury picked up in the season opener against the Columbus Crew has dogged him since mid-March, limiting him to only two league appearances and 131 minutes.

It’s also nullified any sort of contribution the 26-year-old hoped to have in his first full season with United.

“It’s been a long two-and-a-half-months … [especially] seeing the boys go up and down,” Zayner said.
