Canada 2 Jamaica 0: Jackson-Hamel and Osorio score, Davies sent off

Canada gained a measure of revenge against Jamaica, recording a 2-0 win in their friendly on Saturday.

First-half goals from Anthony Jackson-Hamel and Jonathan Osorio saw Octavio Zambrano's men to victory at BMO Field in Toronto.

But there was a downside for the hosts, with 16-year-old sensation Alphonso Davies sent off late in the encounter.

The outing was Canada's first since a loss to Jamaica in their CONCACAF Gold Cup quarter-final in July, but both nations were understrength for the clash.

Canada took the lead in the 16th minute, with Junior Hoilett allowed to run into the area from the right before crossing for Jackson-Hamel to tap in his third international goal.
