SANTA CLARA, Calif. It's not a fluke that Jamaica made it to the Bay Area. It also wasn't a fluke that they went toe-to-toe with the U.S. Men's National Team in their, 2-1, Gold Cup final loss.

The Reggae Boyz have much to feel good about: Andre Blake's Golden Ball and Golden Glove performance over the course of the tournament, edging Juan Carlos Osorio's Mexico in the semifinals, and more impressively, reaching the Gold Cup final for a second consecutive time.

Andre Blake's early injury robbed him of a chance to shine in Wednesday's Gold Cup final, but the good news is that the Jamaican goalkeeper shouldn't be out of action for too long.

X-rays on Blake's hand were negative as the Philadelphia Union suffered no broken bones during a first half collision with Kellyn Acosta.

It's a simple scenario for the USMNT in Wednesday's soccer news. Deny Jamaica width on the defensive end and break down the standard attempts to clog the direct routes on the offensive end. Do that, and the balance should tilt in the USMNT's favor. In other words, it's standard CONCACAF soccer for tonight's Gold Cup final (9:30pm ET - FS1).

Jamaica is younger - and better - than they have been in years.

Over a year ago I wrote an article that predicted the end of Jamaica being a CONCACAF power due to the aging out of some of the team's regular players.

I'm happy to report that rumors of Jamaica's death have been greatly exaggerated.
