Omar Holness replaces Alvas Powell on Jamaica Gold Cup roster

Alvas Powell leaves Jamaica squadJamaica coach Winfried Schafer has moved to reveal that talented defender Alvas Powell (19/0) decided to leave the national team ahead of the Gold Cup quarter-finals

The Reggae Boyz largely impressed to secure the first place in Group B and are now 2.50 (3/2) to see off Haiti in the quarter-final.

However, coach Winfried Schafer has received some bad news with Portland Timbers defender Alvas Powell opting to turn his back on the Jamaica national team.

After making just one substitute appearance in the group stage, the 20-year-old did not want to take part in the remainder of the tournament.

This is another worry for Jamaica, who will be without Darren Mattocks, Je-Vaughn Watson and Jermaine Taylor in the Haiti game.

“I told (Powell), your time is coming, we need all players, we need Michael Hector, we need you, we need Dawkins (Simon), we need Ryan Thompson,” coach Schafer said

“Now we need him, he told me he don’t want to play. You have no chance when you think about I, I, I. No, it’s we that’s important; we, the team, that’s important.”

The boss revealed that he would call midfielder Omar Holness (1/0) as well as another player from the preliminary roster.
