Player Ratings: Mexico 0-0 Jamaica

Goal.com takes a look at the individual performances from the Reggae Boyz's shocking 0-0 draw against El Tri in Mexico City.

  • J. Corona
    45
    13
    4.00

    J. Corona Top of the Match

    He was the game's best player. In the 8th minute, he had his first great intervention, stopping McAnuff's point-blank shot. From then on, he was there to fix any and every error made by his faltering defense and midfield.

  • C. Salcido
    5
    39
    2.50

    C. Salcido

    Very slow when it came to recovering loose balls. Jamaican players were apt to take advantage of his deficiencies.

  • Javi Martínez
    9
    34
    2.00

    Javi Martínez

    Lackadaisical in his marking and slow on the ball. Throughout long passages of the match, he was a bit disinterested.

  • Héctor Moreno
    29
    12
    2.50

    Héctor Moreno

    He wasn't able to pair up with 'Maza', and never found his spot on the pitch. Needs a partner with better movement on the pitch and defensive positioning.

  • Jorge Emmanuel Torres
    13
    29
    3.00

    Jorge Emmanuel Torres

    He tried throughout and was able to push forward on almost every possession. However, his crosses were less than great.

  • Paul Nicolás Aguilar
    7
    44
    1.50

    Paul Nicolás Aguilar

    Was weak on the attack and defensively, his work was shoddy at best due in part to the Jamaican players' speed.

  • Jose Andrés Guardado
    15
    35
    1.00

    Jose Andrés Guardado Flop of the Match

    Guardado's worst match with the national team in recent memory, his two mistakes could have ended in goals for Jamaica if not for Corona's great saves.

  • H. Herrera
    39
    12
    3.50

    H. Herrera

    The best player on the pitch for a long stretch. Covered for many of Salcido's mistakes in the first half. When 'Chepo' subbed him out, the discontent in the stands was evident.

  • Giovani dos Santos
    34
    22
    2.50

    Giovani dos Santos

    Completely off his game, rightfully subbed out prior to the start of the second half. His level of play was far off from the Giovani Mexico fans have been accustomed to seeing.

  • Javier Hernández
    30
    30
    3.00

    Javier Hernández

    Another player who was unable to shine. The low point was being reprimanded by 'Chepo' after Hernandez labored down to midfield in order to recover a loose ball he himself had coughed up.

  • O. Peralta
    17
    33
    3.00

    O. Peralta

    Peralta was one of the many players who was unrightfully lumped in with the poor cast around him. His attempts to play around Chicharito were myriad, but neither him nor Hernandez were sharp.

Substitutions

  • J. Aquino
    28
    14
    3.00

    J. Aquino

    Subbed in and displayed a lot of spunk, tried to shoot and create chances for others. In the end, like his teammates, he was unable to score or make a noticeable difference.

  • Á. Reyna
    9
    34
    2.00

    Á. Reyna

    Seemed distracted and was unable to mix in with the rest of his teammates. At the end of the match, cameras caught him in a heated discussion with 'Chicharito'.

  • M. Fabián
    19
    18
    2.50

    M. Fabián

    His time on the pitch did not help Mexico towards a victory, however, he was better than Guardado and the team was a little sharper.

  • Donovan Ricketts
    65
    5
    4.00

    Donovan Ricketts

    Jamaica's best player, was there to solve all of Mexico's dangerous plays. Next to Corona, the game's MVP.

  • Adrian Mariappa
    31
    4
    3.00

    Adrian Mariappa

    Was strong on the wing and always came back down to defend despite the constant attacks that the Mexican team tried on that side of the pitch.

  • Nyron Nosworthy
    32
    4
    3.50

    Nyron Nosworthy

    One of the players who had the most amount of work over the evening, his physical strength was key to pushing Mexico's strikers around.

  • Demar Phillips
    28
    4
    3.50

    Demar Phillips

    Played a great match and was able to bust through the Mexican midfield, his long passes were deadly and he was able to create mistakes stemming from pressure on Guardado and Salcido.

  • Jermaine Taylor
    26
    4
    3.00

    Jermaine Taylor

    Was able to hang with Chicharito and Peralta, held them both at bay throughout the match and constantly disturbed their progress.

  • Jermaine Johnson
    24
    5
    2.00

    Jermaine Johnson

    After Mexico's strong start to the second half, Whitmore decided to switch him out with positive results.

  • Rodolph Austin

    6
    2.50

    Rodolph Austin

    Was mostly error-free and maintained pressure on the players moving through the middle of the field. Played all 90 minutes.

  • Ryan Johnson
    23

    3.00

    Ryan Johnson

    Had good runs on the left side, Aguilar battled with him throughout until he was subbed out for Stewart.

    2.50

    Omar Daley

    Fulfilled his job description whilst on the pitch, his play in the second half helped keep Jamaica's goal away from danger.
