Looking back now to take a look at guadalupe’s recent form, the in the conquer cough gold cup, the last match. First round they lost 3 1 to um costa rica. Before that there was the nilal draw with guatemala, which they won on penalties to qualify for the tournament, then, prior to that they beat bahamas two nil in a um gold cup qualifier, they had an international friendly against martinique, which they won 2 1 and they destroyed The kirk center turks and caicos 10 nil, alright. Now as far as jamaica, the last five matches reading aren’t as pretty seeing that there was a lot of experimentation being done with the um makeup of the team. So we all know that we beat suriname um. Two nil in the first match of the gold cup before that there was an embarrassing foreign loss to japan under 23s. Then there was that okay performance against serbia um, where it ended one one a week prior to the um loss to japan. Then we lost to usa without pretty much make 15 when the players were on strike um, and before that we had the two games against saudi arabia, one we one in which we lost and the other one that we won. So the form hasn’t been um as consistent as you can see, guatemala has played um, i wouldn’t say i played easier opponents and i have due to that probably have a better record coming into this match, but i would still see jamaica as the favorites all right.
Now i want to take a closer look at guatemala and um just to take a look, probably at their last 10 ursa games are going to switch over to sofa score. Okay, so now we’re going to take a look at the stats from their three gold cup matches. So far, so they’ve played three matches: scored four goals, concealed four goals: um created one assist in attacking they average 1.3 goals per game. Gold conversion is 57 percent. They haven’t had any penalties. They haven’t scored. Any free, kicks, they’ve, scored one goal in one um goal inside the box from three attempts: zero of five from outside the box in five zero left foot goals. One right foot goal zero here. It goes big chances per game. Zero point: three big chance is miss per game: 0.0 total shots per game; 2.3, shots on target per game 1.0 shuts off target per game; 1.3 successful dribbles per game 3.0 corners per game 0.7 hit the woodwork zero times and had zero counter attacks in those three Games in ball position they only had 38 accurate um passes per game 96 at 80.3 percent. Um accurate pass is in her own half 54. At 86.6. Accurate passes in opposition have 43 at 69.6 percent, accurate long balls 7.0 at 56.8. Accurate crosses 0.3 at 9.1 percent. All right um not very impressed by the start. So far, if i’m going to be honest with you, but let’s continue and look at the defending stats.
Um they’ve had clean sheet zero. As we said earlier, goals conceded per game 1.3 tackles per game 4.0 interceptions per game 6.0 clearances per game, 4.7 saves per game 0.7 um errors leading to shots, zero errors leading to goals. One penalties committed zero penalty goals, conceded zero clearances off line zero. Last one tackles zero. Now the other miscellaneous that’s deals, one per game: 17.7 at 57.6 percent grown deals 113 at 60.9. That’S, not bad aerial deals, one 4.7 and 50 possession loss per game 37.3 times. Offsides per game. 0.17 falls per game, 3.7, yellow cards per game, 0.17 red cards per game or red cards. You know those three games, one um yeah. So now we look at the stats. If you go by the stats, you would think that um jamaica would have nothing to worry about. But if you’ve seen the team play, you know that they’re, a great team that’s able to uh, grind out a result. But with that being said, i really expect um jamaica to win this game um comfortably and if we don’t that should bring um alarm bells and probably give us something to think about, but um yeah. We should get this one in the back and move on to six points before um face costa rica in the final game of the group.
