Leon Bailey Named in Reggae Boyz Squad for Copa America

Aston Villa winger Leon Bailey has been unexpectedly named in the Reggae Boyz’s 26-man squad for the 2024 Copa America tournament, which starts next week.

The 26-year-old hasn’t played for Jamaica since last November against Canada. He was suspended by head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson for breaking curfew during the Concacaf Nations League finals in March.

Following his suspension, Bailey announced a break from the national team but is set to return for the tournament.

Captain Andre Blake, who recently underwent surgery, has also been included in the squad, with hopes that he can participate in the latter part of the tournament.


Other notable inclusions are winger Demarai Gray and Brentford defender Ethan Pinnock.

The Reggae Boyz’s opening game against Mexico kicks off next Saturday.

They will then face Ecuador and Venezuela in their final group games. Only the top two teams will advance to the knockout stages.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Andre Blake, Coniah Boyce-Clarke, Jahmali Waite, Shaquan Davis

Defenders: Amari’i Bell, Damion Lowe, Dexter Lembikisa, Di’Shon Bernard, Ethan Pinnock, Michael Hector, Greg Leigh, Richard King, Michael Hector

Jon Bell, Wesley Harding


Midfielders: Bobby Reid, Alex Marshall, Joel Latibeaudiere, Karoy Anderson, Kasey Palmer, Kevon Lambert
