Jamaica and Panama Vie for Third Place in Concacaf Nations League

Jamaica and Panama will faceoff today in the third-place contest of the 2023/24 Concacaf Nations League at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. (5pm Jamaica time)

Under the guidance of coach Heimir Hallgrimsson, Jamaica showcased tremendous resilience in their semi-final against the United States, leading until the dying moments of stoppage time, only to succumb to an own-goal and a subsequent 3-1 defeat in extra-time.

On the other hand, Panama faced a 0-3 defeat against Mexico in their semi-final bout.

Despite a strong first-half showing, they conceded two goals just before halftime.


With aspirations to secure their best-ever finish in a Nations League Finals, the Canaleros will look to midfielder Adalberto Carrasquilla and Anibal Godoy to marshal their midfield and bolster their chances.

Both teams are aware of the importance of finding the back of the net.

Jamaica and Panama have clashed in previous tournaments, with Panama emerging victorious in their last meetings during Concacaf World Cup 2022 Qualifiers.

However, Jamaica claimed a victory in the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup quarterfinals.

For Jamaica, this campaign also marks a historic milestone, as they navigate the latter stages of the Nations League for the first time.

A win would provide a significant morale boost as they look ahead to the CONMEBOL Copa America tournament in June and Concacaf Gold Cup qualifiers.
