MEXICO CITY, March 26 (Xinhua) -- Mexico missed the chance to extend their lead in Group A of the CONCACAF Nations League on Sunday when they were held to a 2-2 home draw by Jamaica.

Bobby Reid put the visitors ahead against the run of play with a 30-yard volley into top-right corner after a bungled clearance attempt.

Mexico equalized shortly after as Orbelin Pineda slid a first-time effort into the bottom-right corner following Henry Martin's clever backheel.

Edson Alvarez gifted Jamaica the lead just after the half-hour mark when the ball rebounded off his thigh and into his own net after a corner.

Lozano put Mexico back on level terms by converting a penalty after Martin was tripped by Ravel Morrison.

The result at Estadio Azteca leaves Mexico with eight points from four games, two points ahead of Jamaica and seven points clear of Suriname.
