World Cup daily recap & open thread: Group H final round

I know most of us reading this blog are USA or England fans at their core. But if you’re a Tottenham Hotspur fan, you were probably also watching Jamaica, if only because there were two Spurs players playing in their first ever World Cup — midfielder Drew Spence and keeper Becky Spencer. And boy did they come through Wednesday morning! Jamaica held woso legend Marta, Debinha, and mighty Brazil to a 0-0 draw, sending the Reggae Girlz on to the knockout stage of the World Cup, over the Brazilians.

What a match. It was tense all the way through, and keeper Spencer had some outstanding and critical stops down the stretch. Has there been a better keeper thus far in this World Cup? I’m not sure there has. She’s been outstanding.

There were other games too. They’re below. But we’re talking about Jamaica here.

Thursday is the final two matches of the group stage in Group H, and then we take a break for a couple of days before the Round of 16.

Here are your recaps and schedule for today’s action.
