According to Sport Max, on Tuesday, it was once again Saudi Arabia that struck first, in the 29th minute.  Abdullah Al-Hamdan finished off a sweeping counter-attacking move that had resulted from a poorly cleared defensive effort.

Playing with much more confidence than the first encounter, the Jamaicans would get the all-important goal in the 34th minute.
