Scorers: Pepi 49′, 62′

Ricardo Pepi scores his second and third goals in his second-career cap as the United States pick up an important three points.

While the 0-0 scoreline made USMNT fans nervous at the half-time whistle, they never looked like losing and showed their superiority in the second half.

Pepi’s stock soared once again on Thursday night as he proved why teams like Bayern Munich are paying close attention with a beautiful header into the bottom corner to put the Americans in front.

The 18-year-old’s night was just beginning as he would score his second goal just after the hour mark courtesy of a beautifully delivered cross from Brenden Aaronson.

The FC Dallas product is now the youngest player in USMNT history to score in consecutive World Cup qualifying matches.

With the defeat, Jamaica’s ambitious World Cup dreams are fading fast as they find themselves on just one point through four games.
