Shelton goal gives Jamaica friendly win

KINGSTON - Striker Luton Shelton scored in the 68th minute to give Jamaica a 1-0 friendly victory over Canada at the National Stadium on Sunday.

Shelton, who plays for Valerenga in Norway, spurned several earlier chances but decided the game when he raced onto a pass from fellow forward Omar Cummings and hit a low shot past goalkeeper David Monslave.

The 18,000 crowd was treated to a fast-paced opening to the match, but the action slowed and both sides were guilty of missing opportunities that came their way.

Neither team will feature at this year's World Cup finals in South Africa having failed to make the second phase of CONCACAF qualifying.
