[JAMAICA] Four MLS players were summoned by the Jamaican soccer federation to play for Jamaica in a friendly Wednesday against Argentina in Mar del Plata.
Omar Cummings (Colorado), Ryan Johnson (San Jose), Dane Richards (New York) and Shavar Thomas (Philadelphia) were named to the squad by Coach Theodore Whitmore, whose team beat Canada, 1-0, Jan. 31 with a goal by Luton Shelton (Valerenga, Norway) in Kingston. Cummings assisted on Shelton’s goal.
Sheldon and Seattle defender Tyrone Marshall are among the foreign-based Jamaican players not called up by Whitmore to face Argentina. Marshall, Thomas, and Cummings started against Jamaica; Johnson came on as a sub.
Jamaica is among the teams being considered as possible U.S. opponents for friendlies to be played at the end of May before the national team heads to South Africa.
