Whitmore to announce Jamaican squad for World Cup qualifier against Mexico

Jamaica’s squad to engage high ranking Mexico in their opening encounter in the CONCACAF Final Round World Cup qualifying competition will assemble in Mexico City on Sunday.

The squad which is expected to include a number of players who have not been seen around the team in a long time, will be unveiled by coach Theodore Whitmore on Wednesday.

JFF President captain Horace Burrell has revealed that the squad to be named by Whitmore, most of whom will be in action on Saturday will assemble in Mexico City on Sunday ahead of the February 6 World Cup qualifier at the imposing Azteca Stadium.

Assembling in Mexico City on Sunday will give coach Whitmore at least two full training sessions with the squad.


He will have former national captain Warren Barrett with him on the coaching staff as he steps in to take charge of the goalkeeper duties.

In the meantime national under 20 team coach Luciano Gama left the island for Phoenix, Arizona to watch the friendly international between Mexico and Denmark on Wednesday.
