Mexico vs Jamaica Prediction
Mexico produced a fine display in the 3-1 win over Uruguay, but it has to be noted that La Celeste were without their star player Luis Suarez in the opening match of the 2016 Copa America campaign. Anyhow, El Tri extended their winning run to ten games and seeing that the Reggae Boyz have some selection worries ahead of the second group game, there is every chance the Mexicans will record yet another in the group stages of the tournament in USA.
