FOOTBALL: New Reggae Boyz coach calls 24-member local based squad
2013-08-27 12:33:31 | (0 Comments)
New Reggae Boyz coach German national Winfried Schafer has selected his first Jamaican squad since taking charge of the national senior team in July.
Schafer has called a 24-member squad of local based players for a training session at the Jamaica Football Federation Football Centre tomorrow.
The 63-year-old Schafer is preparing a team for the crucial final round CONACAF World Cup Qualifiers against Panama in Panama City on September 6.
Jamaica currently sit at the bottom of the six-team table on two points from six matches and are in danger of elimination.
Schafer took over from local-based Theodore Whitmore, who was removed from the post after a 2-0 defeat to Honduras early June.
That loss was the team’s fourth in succession and third in eight days.
The local-based squad sees the return of the country’s top striker Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson from Waterhouse.
Anderson was repeatedly overlooked by Whitmore.
In June members of Anderson’s hometown in Granville, St James staged a demonstration demanding that he included in the Reggae Boyz’ squad.
The squad includes four players each from Premiership champions Harbour View and Portmore United.
There are five players from Waterhouse in the squad.
