The goal came in the 72nd minute from a set piece which fell to Michael Binns in the box, and the midfielder made no mistake.

The last time that both teams faced each other in a friendly came in 2011 where Honduras won 2-1. Demar Phillips scored the goal for the Reggae Boyz on that occasion.
Jamaica’s last victory over Honduras came in the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup where Jamaica won 1-0 courtesy of a goal from Ryan Johnson.
Both teams will be using this game in preparation for big things ahead. Honduras, for their upcoming World Cup Qualifiers in March where they will play against USA and Costa Rica. Jamaica, to continue their preparation for the semi-finals of the Caribbean Cup as well as the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

In the 2017 Copa Centroamericana they won 4 of their 5 games to win their first title since 2011.
