Blake Man of the Match in Boyz's victory
Goalkeeper Andre Blake was named Player of the Match in Jamaica's 2-1 win over Canada in their CONCACAF Gold Cup quarter-final at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale Arizona on Thursday.
The Jamaicans will play defending champions Mexico in tomorrow's semi-final at the Rose Bowl in California. Mexico was a -0 winner over Honduras in the second game of the doubleheader.
Mexico beat Jamaica 3-1 in the Gold Cup championship match two years ago.
Hoilett's goal was only the second allowed in the tournament's four games by Andre Blake, who plays for Philadelphia and was named outstanding goalkeeper in Major League Soccer last season.
Among Blake's saves Thursday was one on a point-blank header by Alvas Powell. That shot came moments after Powell's left-footed attempt went just left of the Jamaica net.
