USMNT held to a tie in World Cup qualifying against Jamaica

The U.S. men's national team kicked off the second half of their 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign with a frustrating tie on Tuesday.

With an average age of 22 years, 341 days for his lineup, USMNT coach Gregg Berhalter named the team's second-youngest starting XI in World Cup Qualifying history.

The most impressive goal of the match came from Antonio, who blistered this shot from way outside the penalty area and past a hopeless Zack Steffen in the U.S. net.

Unfortunately for the United States, his curled effort sailed just over the top of Andre Blake 's outstretched hand and the Jamaican goalkeeper's crossbar.

The Reggae Boyz thought they had a match-winner about five minutes from the end of regulation, but referee Juan Gabriel Calderón waved the goal off for a foul in the box from Damion Lowe on American defender Walker Zimmerman .
