The center back was immense for the Reggae Boyz and amassed seven clearances in the two games, to go along with a steal and an assist.

Lembikisa picked the right time to score his first goal with Jamaica with a powerful left-footed finish in the 1-0 third-place win versus Panama – he also had seven clearances.

The United States had seven players named in the eleven including goalkeeper Matt Turner, Antonee Robinson, Tyler Adams, Weston Mckennie, Gio Reyna, Christian Pulisic and Hadj Wright while midfielder Edson Alvarez was the only Mexican named in the team. 

Jamaica took the bronze medal after defeating Panama in the third place playoff while the United States won for a third straight time with a 2 nil win over Mexico.
