Three new players including 18-year-old Harbour View midfielder Jahshaun Anglin have been included in an all-local 20-man Reggae Boyz squad assembled to play in an international friendly against Bermuda at the Montego Bay Sports Complex on Wednesday.
The squad also includes players who are being afforded another shot at making Jamaica’s provisional squad for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers that begin later this year.
Renaldo Wellington a defender of former Premier League club Montego Bay United has also been called to the squad. According to team manager Roy Simpson, “The coaches have seen something in him that they feel they can build on.”
Lamar Walker has been recalled after recovering from injury and Jamaica’s U23 player Andre Fletcher, is being given an opportunity at the senior level, Simpson said.
Also included in the squad is Peter Lee Vassell, who was recently released by Los Angeles FC in the MLS.
The squad will have a single training session at the UWI/JFF Captain Horace Burrell Centre of Excellence on Tuesday before departing for Montego Bay.
Jamaica has a record of three wins and three draws against the Bermudans. The last of those wins came in 1997 when the Reggae Boyz emerged 3-2 winners in the Caribbean Cup.
