KENDAL Town skipper Marc Joseph picked up a yellow card in Antigua and Barbuda's World Cup qualifying defeat against the United States of America last night (Friday).

The Americans, coached by Tottenham and Germany legend Jurgen Klinsmann, picked up a 3-1 victory courtesy of goals from Glasgow Rangers full-back Carlos Bocanegra, Fulham star Clint Dempsey and Herculez Gomez.

Substitute Peter Byers, who plays in the third tier of football in America, got the goal for the Caribbean side at the Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Florida.

Joseph blocked two early Dempsey efforts when he was in the box and put in a good shift for the Antiguans.

Their next game is against Jamaica, who beat Guatemala 2-1 in their opening qualifier, on Tuesday.
