Canada took a big step towards qualifying for the 2023-24 Concacaf Nations League finals after registering a hard-fought 2-1 victory over Jamaica at Kingston's Independence Park on Saturday.   

Jonathan David and Stephen Eustáquio scored for Canada who sits in an advantageous position going into the second leg of this Concacaf playoff. The Reds only need a draw in next Tuesday’s return match in Toronto to advance to the Nations League finals. The men's team has never lost in 19 competitive matches at BMO Field with 13 wins.   

The winner of this series also qualifies for the 2024 Copa América that’ll be hosted by the United States next summer.
