FOOTBALL: Reggae Boyz to train at Stadium East today

Jamaica's 27-member Reggae Boyz squad will today get another chance to impress new coach Winfried Schafer ahead of Friday's crucial World Cup qualifier against Panama in Panama City.

Four players will be chopped from the squad on the eve of the team's departure.
The 27-member squad comprises 22 overseas-based players and five local based players.
Among the local-based players is the country’s top striker Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson.
Anderson, who plays for Waterhouse Football Club, was repeatedly overlooked by then coach Theodore Whitmore.
And in June members of Anderson’s hometown in Granville, St James staged a demonstration demanding that he included in the Reggae Boyz’ squad.
Coach Schafer speaks of Anderson's inclusion in the squad.
As expected Marlon King and fellow British-based striker Chris Humphrey, who were both axed from Reggae Boyz squad last year June for breaking curfew rules, have returned.
The players were axed by Whitmore for the first two games in the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying Semi-Final Round and surprisingly were not invited back to the squad.
Luton Shelton, another player who was overlooked by Whitmore, has rejoined the squad.
There are two new additions to the squad.
Those players are Shaun Cummings from Reading and Wes Morgan from Leicester City.
