Since the end of Jamaica’s failed bid to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, overseas-based players have not been used by national coach Theodore Whitmore, but that all looks set to change with the announcement of a 23-man squad for the start of the CONCACAF Nations League.
The Reggae Boyz will play a friendly against Ecuador on September 7 before opening their Nations Cup qualifying campaign against Cayman Islands on September 9.
For the two games, Whitmore has announced a squad with familiar names like Andre Blake, Damion Lowe, Darren Mattocks, Kemar Lawrence, Adrian Mariappa, Alvas Powell, JeVaughn Watson, and Michael Hector.
The team is still largely a local-based team, with Ricardo Morris, Javon East, Amal Knight, and Peter-Lee Vassell all making the cut, or the expansion, whichever way you look at it.
