The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) has named a 20-man squad for games in the Scotia Bank Caribbean Football Union (CFU) Caribbean Cup Round Three. Prepared by Interim Head Coach Theodore “Tappa” Whitmore, former coach and national player, and Assistant Jerome Waite after head coach Winfried Schaefer was fired following Jamaica’s catastrophic FIFA World Cup record which ended with back-to-back losses against Panama and Haiti. Both coaches were named after veteran coach Carl Brown was offered and turned down the job earlier this week.
For Group One, Jamaica will play against Suriname on Wednesday, October 5 at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex in Trench Town and face off against Guyana at the National Stadium in Providence, Guyana.
Playing in Group Two is Haiti, French Guiana and St Kitts & Nevis. For Group Three will be Curacao, Antigua and Barbuda and Puerto Rico. Group Four will host Trinidad and Tobago, Dominican Republic and Martinique.
Team Jamaica will show the talents of 12 overseas players and eight local players.
