    ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada – Goalkeeper Shemel Louison and defender Kennedy Hinkson have been named to Grenada’s 20-man squad for an international friendly against visiting Panama on Tuesday at Kirani James Athletics Stadium.

    It will be the sides’ second-ever meeting in a FIFA “A” international. They first squared off in a CONCACAF Gold Cup warm-up match on May 29, 2011, with the host Panamanians earning a 2-0 win on goals by Gabriel Gomez and Alberto Quintero.

    Louison and Hinkson both featured for Trinidad & Tobago’s San Juan Jabloteh in this year’s inaugural Scotiabank CONCACAF League.

    Panama recently qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, while Grenada is coming off a 1-0 win over Guyana earlier this month. Forward Saydrel Lewis, 19, scored the only goal in that match and is on the current roster.
