Jobi McAnuff’s 14th goal for his country was enough to separate Jamaica and Morocco in this Group H clash in Fortaleza this afternoon.

In a game punctuated by clumsy fouls, but only one caution, Jamaica just about shaded it and twice struck the woodwork  through Karl Henry either side of the break.

The goal, which condemned Morocco to a winless-run at the Finals going back to 1998 came in the 67th minute when Jobi McAnuff took a touch from Liam Feeney’s ball into the box before finishing low under Burkadi from twelve yards out.

Morocco couldn’t break down the six-man Jamaican defence as Austin and Henry dropped back for the last twenty minutes, and Jamaica earned their first Finals win since beating Japan 2-1 in Lyon in 1998.
