Kingston, Jamaica, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - APP - 18th Jun, 2019 ) :Turkey-based striker Dever Orgill scored twice as Jamaica opened their CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign with a 3-2 victory over Honduras on Monday.
Honduras were given a way back into the game on 54 minutes after a defensive slip by Jamaica's Shaun Francis was seized upon by Alberth Elis.
Houston Dynamo forward Elis dispossessed Francis and then squared unselfishly for Anthony Lozano, who bundled in the finish to make it 2-1.
Once again Vassell was the architect for the hosts, curling a perfectly flighted corner into the area for Damion Lowe to head home for 3-1.
Roman Castillo pulled a goal back deep into stoppage time to ensure a nervous finale, but Jamaica held on for a deserved win.
In the day's other game, El Salvador labored to a 1-0 victory over lowly Curacao.
