Demarai Grey, the striker for Everton FC, has been selected to join Jamaica’s 23-man squad for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup, which is set to commence this weekend.
In recent news, it has been reported that Grey has been associated with the Reggae Boyz team for quite some time. However, he was only granted his passport recently and was subsequently added to the team. The head coach, Heimir Hallgrímsson, announced the team’s roster in a post-game press conference on Monday. This announcement came after the team’s 2-1 loss to Jordan in a friendly international match that was held in Austria.
Five notable football players have been included in the recent camp held in Austria. Among them are Ethan Pinnock, Bobby Reid, Michail Antonio, and Leon Bailey, all of whom are known for their impressive performances in the English Premier League. Additionally, the young and talented Dujuan ‘Whisper’ Richards also made it to the list, having played in both games during the camp. This news comes as no surprise to many, given the players’ exceptional skills and experience in the field.
In a recent press conference, it was announced that Pinnock will not be participating in the opening game against the USA in Chicago this Saturday. The reason for this absence is due to personal family matters.
