Greg Leigh’s Jamaica will open their Copa America tournament against Mexico this weekend.

The tournament got underway on Thursday night, with Argentina opening their defence of the Copa America with a 2-0 win over a battling Canada.

Jamaica take on Mexico at the NRG Stadium in Texas, with kick-off at 2am (UK time) on Sunday, June 23.

The Reggae Boyz will then take on Ecuador and Venezuela in the group phase.

Earlier this month, Jamaica opened their CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying on a winning note with Oxford United left-back Leigh playing a key role in both victories last week. 

Leigh played the full 90 minutes as the Reggae Boyz beat the Dominican Republic 1-0, courtesy of Shamar Nicholson’s goal just after the quarter of an hour mark.

The 29-year-old again played the full 90 minutes, as Jamaica survived a late fightback from Dominica.

Nicholson and Kaheim Dixon gave Jamaica a 2-0 lead at half-time, with Nicholson extending the advantage from the penalty spot with 11 minutes to go.

However, Javid George and Troy Jules then netted for Dominica, to set up a tense finale.
