Schafer selects Jamaica Copa America squad

Jamaica coach Winfried Schafer has unveiled the final 23-man squad for the 2016 Copa America Centenario tournament.

The likes of Andre Blake, Rodolph Austin and Westley Morgan will represent the Reggae Boyz at the Copa America, but they will not take part in a friendly against Chile on May 27.

Jamaica have been drawn alongside Venezuela, Mexico and Uruguay in Group C and they certainly face an uphill task at the upcoming tournament.

Demar Phillips, Alvas Powell and Darren Mattocks have been left out of the squad, but Birmingham City attacker Clayton Donaldson and Brondby midfielder Rodolph Austin made the Jamaica Copa America squad. Damano Solomon could make his debut for the Reggae Boyz against Chile.

Jamaica failed to impress at the 2015 Copa America as they were beaten by Uruguay, Paraguay and Argentina in Group B.

Jamaica Copa America squad:

Goalkeepers: Andre Blake (Philadelphia Union), Duwayne Kerr (Stjarnan), Ryan Thompson (Saint Louis);

Defenders: Jermaine Taylor (Portland Timbers), Adrian Mariappa (Crystal Palace), Kemar Lawrence (New York Red Bulls), Wes Morgan (Leicester City), Michael Hector (Reading), Rosario Harriott (Harbour View), Damano Solomon (Portmore United);

Midfielders: Rodolph Austin (Brondby), Je-Vaughh Watson (New England), Jobi McAnuff (Leyton Orient), Garath McCleary (Reading), Lee Williamson (Blackburn Rovers), Andrew Vanzie (Humble Lions), Michael Binns (Portmore United), Chevone Marsh (Cavalier);

Forwards: Simon Dawkins (San Jose), Giles Barnes (Houston Dynamo), Dever Orgill (Mariehamn), Clayton Donaldson (Birmingham City), Allan Ottey (Montego Bay United).
