Leeds United midfielder Rodolph Austin helped Jamaica grind out a 0-0 draw at group favourites Mexico.
Austin started the game for Jamaica as they brought to an end a 19-game winning run for Mexico. The draw was the first time that Mexico have been held to a draw at the Azteca Stadium since 1997.
The game, the first in the final qualifying round from the CONCACAF group gives Jamaica a great start as they look to qualify for the World Cup Finals in Brazil in 2014. Jamaica have only previously reached the finals on one other occasion in France 1998.
The top three sides in the six-team group qualify automatically for the finals with the fourth placed side going into a play-off.
The group also includes Honduras, USA, Costa Rica and Panama. Honduras are the early leaders of the group, enjoying a 2-1 win in America whilst Costa Rica and Panama played out a 2-2 draw.
Jamaica are next in action in March when they play Panama at home before travelling to Costa Rica four days later.
