Gerardo Arteaga emerged as the hero for El Tri, scoring the winning goal in the 69th minute. The match remained tense throughout, with Jamaica nearly taking the lead in the 50th minute through Michail Antonio. However, a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) review overturned the goal, keeping the score level.
