Jamaica called up three players who played in MLS last season for the Boyz's friendly against the United States Feb. 12 in Kingston.

Tyrone Marshall of the MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy and Craig Ziadie and Andy Williams, who played for the MetroStars in 2002, were called up. Williams did not have his MLS option picked up for 2003.

Coach Carl Brown invited nine English-based players: midfielders Micah Hyde (Watford), Ricardo Gardener (Bolton), Jamie Lawrence (Bradford) and Damien Francis (Wimbledon) and forwards Deon Burton (Portsmouth), Onandi Lowe (Rushden & Diamonds), Trevor Benjamin (Leicester), Jermaine Johnson (Bolton) and Kevin Lisbie (Charlton). Newcomer Francis, Hyde and Burton have confirmed.

Brown called up 25 local players, including Theodore Whitmore, who scored both goals in Jamaica's 2-1 win over Japan at the 1998 World Cup. Whitmore, 30, faces manslaughter charges following the death of teammate Shorty Malcolm in a car accident in 2001.

The others in camp through Feb. 1 are: Donovan Ricketts, Aaron Lawrence, Shawn Sawyers, Alien Whittaker, FabianTaylor, Robert Scarlet, Nicholas McCreath, Shane Crawford, Denzil Mitchell, Linval Dixon, Claude Davis, Omar Daley, Roen Nelson, Kevin Deerr, Wolry Wolfe, Tyrone Sawyers, Kasai Hinds, Oneil Dunn, Jonathan Williams, Gerald Neil, Wayne Ellis, Shane Stevens, Lacon Brissett and Denton Vidal.

In a match earlier in the week, the Boyz needed an own goal and penalty to overcome a 3-1 deficit and tie Hazard United's U-21 team, 3-3.
