The game was an exhibition of soccer skills played in the midfield with few opportunities to give both goal keepers the competition they expected.
€I feel very happy to see these people here and a lot of people from El Salvador come to support us. We're happy to have everybody play better and we know we're going to have a hard game against Mexico. We're going to try to win that game, for that game is very important for us. We have to get the three points,€ said former D.C. United midfielder Eliseo Quintanilla.
El Salvador will now refocus on World Cup qualifying and hosts Mexico on Sat., June 6. El Salvador has reached the final stage of the CONCACAF regional World Cup qualifiers for the first time in 12 years

Addlery, who plays for the second-division Puerto Rico Islanders, nearly gave Jamaica the lead when his header seemed destined for the far post only to be smacked away by goalkeeper Miguel Montes.
