2013-10-07 09:19:12 | (0 Comments)
Jamaica’s senior football head coach, German national Winfried Schafer, has invited Colorado Rapids forward Deshorn Brown to the Reggae Boyz 23-member squad for upcoming CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers.
The Reggae Boyz will visit United States on Friday, and host Honduras on October 15 at the National Stadium.
In two seasons with the US Major League side, Brown tallied 53 goals and eight assists.
The in-form striker scored twice on Saturday to lead the Colorado Rapids to a 5-1 victory over Seattle Sounders.
The squad is without strikers Marlon King and Luton Shelton who played in the 1-1 draw against Costa Rica on September 10 at the National Stadium.
First choice goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, who missed the Costa Rica game through card accumulations, was overlooked because of a broken finger and as a result DuWayne Kerr received a call-up.
Rodolph Austin is back after serving a one-match suspension, while Demar Phillips received a re-call to the squad.
The squad also includes five local-based players.
They are – Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson, Alvas Powell, Kemar Lawrence, Romario Campbell and goalkeeper Gariece McPherson.
The squad is completed by Adrian Mariappa, Lloyd Doyles, Marvin Elliott, Jermaine Johnson, Joel McAnuff, Darren Mattocks, Theo Robinson, Shaun Cummings, Jermaine Taylor, Je-Vaughn Watson, Ryan Johnson, Westley Morgan and goalkeeper Richard McCallum.
The Reggae Boyz are bottom of the six-team table on four points and only have a slim chance of qualifying for the Brazil 2014 World Cup.
