Suriname takes point against Jamaica in Nations League thanks to goalkeeper blunder | NOW

Suriname took a point in the night from Saturday to Sunday (Dutch time) at the start of the Nations League. The team of national coach Stanley Menzo played a 1-1 draw against Jamaica in Paramaribo thanks to a goalkeeper blunder.

The Surinamese fell behind in the first half with a goal from Toulouse attacker Junior Flemmings. In the final phase, it was equalized by an own goal by Jamaican keeper Amal Knight, who hit the ball into his own goal after a corner.

In Suriname, with Warner Hahn, Dion Malone, Ridgeciano Haps, Kelvin Leerdam, Shaquille Pinas, Myenty Abena, Florian Jozefzoon, Diego Biseswar and Yanic Wildschut, a large number of former Eredivisie players kicked off. Ryan Donk and Jeredy Hilterman, among others, came in.

Suriname, together with Jamaica and Mexico, is classified in group A of the Nations League. On Wednesday, the Jamaicans will be played for the second time, after which a game in and against Mexico awaits next Sunday.

For Curaçao, which is in group C, the Nations League started in the night from Friday to Saturday with a 0-1 loss against Honduras. Canada is the other group member of the team of the new national coach Art Langeler.

The four group winners in Division A of the Nations League for countries from North and Central America and the Caribbean will qualify for the final round. They also ensure, just like the group winners from the lower divisions, of participating in the Gold Cup.
