Mexico win but at what cost?

A significant win for Mexico as they open Copa America with three points.

Winning your first match is more important at Copa America than it is at the Euros given there's no route for third-place teams to advance to the knockout stage here.

But their future prospects in this tournament have taken a huge hit with the loss of Edson Alvarez. The West Ham player suffered a non-contact injury in the first half and given how serious his reaction was, you'd expect him to miss the rest of the tournament.

Dixon sparking life in Jamaica

87' Mexico 1-0 Jamaica

Dixon has created an immediate spark in Jamaica's attack since entering the game a few minutes ago. He darts into the Mexico box and gets to the byline. Without many teammates up in support, he does well to win a corner on a deflection that wasn't far from an own goal.

Moments later Dixon gets an opportunity to shoot from the edge of the box, but gets under the ball and misses wildly.
