Jamaica vs. USA, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Brad Evans the hero in 2-1 win - SB Nation

Most of you weren't watching a World Cup qualifier against Jamaica on beIN late on a Friday night. Most of you missed out on a crazy, dramatic match.

Jamaica equalized on a late goal by Jermaine Beckford in the 89th minute off of a set piece. With four minutes of stoppage time allowed, the Stars and Stripes quickly notched a crucial go-ahead goal via Seattle's Brad Evans in the 92nd minute. A draw would have not been good for the United States' chances of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup.
