Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz were two minutes and 45 seconds into their final Concacaf Gold Cup Group C game, against Costa Rica, when a thunderstorm forced a two and a quarter hour delay to the game, which started at 6 p.m. Jamaica time yesterday. The match was played at Exploria Stadium in Orlando Florida. See today’s STAR Sports for a full review.

The other game of the group, which started at the same time, saw Suriname defeat Guadeloupe 2-1. Both teams were already eliminated from the tournament.
