Jamaica have registered a historic 2-1 victory over the USA at home in their 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.

The Americans made the breakthrough at the Independence Park in Kingston in the very first minute, when Clint Dempsey slotted home from just 10 yards for his 28th international goal.

However, the hosts restored parity in the 24th minute when Rodolph Austin's free kick from 28 yards took a deflection and went past Tim Howard into the USA net.

Luton Shelton made it 2-1 to Jamaica in the 62nd minute with a free kick from 25 yards.

The result means that Jamaica now lead the CONCACAF Group A standings with seven points from three games, three points ahead of the US.

The USA and Jamaica will play each other again at Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday.
