[JAMAICA] Vancouver Whitecaps rookie Darren Mattocks, who has scored seven goals since returning to action after suffering burns in a kitchen fire in March, is among nine MLS players called in to represent Jamaica's Reggae Boyz in Wednesday's friendly against El Salvador at Washington's RFK Stadium. The game is one of two tuneups Jamaica has scheduled in the United States before facing the USA twice in 2014 World Cup qualifying Sept. 7 in Kingston and Sept. 11 in Columbus, Ohio.

Missing are three English-based players -- defenders Adrian Mariappa (Reading) and Nyron Nosworthy (Watford) and midfielder Rodolph Austin (Leeds United) -- and injured Demar Phillips of Norwegian club Aalesund. They all started in the two June qualifiers against Guatemala and Antigua & Barbuda.

Donovan Ricketts
, recently traded from the Montreal Impact to Portland Timbers, is not in the squad. Ricketts started the Guatemala game in goal but was injured early in the game and replaced by Dwayne Miller.

Starting a team of entirely foreign-based players, the Reggae Boyz beat Guatemala, 2-1, and tied Antigua & Barbuda, 0-0.

Jamaica is also scheduled to play Kenya Aug. 25 at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn., but will be without its foreign-based players because it is not an international fixture date.

Jamaica Roster:
Goalkeepers: Dwayne Miller (Syrianska/SWE), Jacomeno Barrett (Montego Bay United).
Defenders: Jermaine Taylor (Houston Dynamo), Lovel Palmer (Portland Timbers), Shavar Thomas (Montreal Impact), Xavian Virgo (Boys Town), O'Brian Woodbine (VPS/FIN), Andrae Campbell (Notodden/NOR), Dicoy Williams (Toronto FC).
Midfielders: Jevaughn Watson (Houston Dynamo), Jason Morrison (Aalesund/NOR), Dane Richards (Vancouver Whitecaps), Joel Senior (Harbour View), Damian Williams (free agent), Ewan Grandison (Portmore United), Keneil Moodie (Montego Bay United).
Forwards: Ryan Johnson (Toronto FC), Omar Cummings (Colorado Rapids), Darren Mattocks (Vancouver Whitecaps), Luton Shelton (Karabukspor/TUR).
