Herculez Gomez scored a second-half free-kick as the USA got their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign back on track with a 1-0 win over Jamaica on Tuesday

Meanwhile Mexico became the first team through to the next regional stage of qualifying after Javier Hernandez scored the only goal in a 1-0 win against Costa Rica.

Gomez curled in a shot from just outside the penalty area in the 55th minute to avenge the defeat to Jamaica last week in front of a crowd of 23,881 at the Columbus Crew Stadium.

The United States, Jamaica and Guatemala all have seven points at the top of Group A in the semi-final round of qualifying in North and Central America and the Caribbean
