Jamaica and Suriname are set to square off at the Exploria Stadium in Orlando in their CONCACAF Gold Cup Group C encounter on Monday.

Jamaica have played just three friendly games in 2021 as they were already assured of a spot in the CONCACAF FIFA World Cup final round of fixtures.

In these three games, they lost to the USA, played a 1-1 draw against Serbia and lost 4-0 to Japan's U-23 side on 12 June.

Suriname were in action four times this year, with all games coming in World Cup qualifiers. After three easy wins in the group stage, they lost 4-0 to Canada last month and missed out on the second-round spot.
