Jamaica 1-0 Canada: Shelton goal wins match

KINGSTON, Jamaica, Jan 31 (Reuters) - Striker Luton Shelton scored in the 68th minute to give Jamaica a 1-0 friendly

victory over Canada at the National Stadium on Sunday.

Shelton, who plays for Valerenga in Norway, spurned several

earlier chances but decided the game when he raced onto a pass

from fellow forward Omar Cummings and hit a low shot past

goalkeeper David Monslave.

The 18,000 crowd was treated to a fast-paced opening to the

match, but the action slowed and both sides were guilty of

missing opportunities that came their way.

Neither team will feature at this year's World Cup finals

in South Africa having failed to make the second phase of

CONCACAF qualifying.
