Soccer season is here and Venezuela is off to a great start after Copa America Centenario got off to a super start with a 1-0 win over Jamaica in Chicago. After go down 1-0, things got even worse after a first have red card by Danilo Diaz Granados. Jamaica was unable to avoid defeat despite a great comeback effort.
Jamaica played the game without Premier League champion Wesley Morgan. The Venezuela coach Rafael Dudamel started Salomon Rondon along his European star Diaz Granados. The Jamaicans showed some fight despite being a man down, but ultimately the Venezuelan squad was too much. Clayton Donaldson led an great charge forward, but the undermanned side struggled to get the numbers needed in the box as Hernandez pounced on a loose ball in the box.
This is Venezuela’s sixth win in the history of CopaAmerica. Their strong effort stands as proof they will be tough to defeat.
