    KINGSTON, Jamaica – Jamaica head coach Theodore Whitmore named Wednesday a 20-man roster for an international friendly against Honduras that will be played February 16 at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, USA.

    With the exception of two changes, the squad remains largely unchanged from the one that dropped a narrow 1-0 decision to the host United States on February 3. Midfielders Fabian Grant and Andre Lewis were called in as replacements for Omar Holness and Alvas Powell.

    The selection is highlighted the inclusion of defender Kemar Lawrence, who plays for the 2016/17 Scotiabank CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinalist New York Red Bulls.

    Current Jamaican champion Montego Bay United, which will be taking part in the 2017 Caribbean Club Championship (CCC) starting on March 1, is the best represented club with five players selected. One of those standouts, forward Owayne Gordon, scored two goals in the 2015 CCC.

    Jamaica is preparing for the 2016/17 Scotiabank CFU Men’s Caribbean Cup finals in June and the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
