Houston Dynamo forward Giles Barnes named to provisional Jamaica roster for Copa America Centenario


Houston Dynamo forward Giles Barnes was named to Jamaica's 40-player provisional roster for the Copa America Centenario, it was announced Wednesday.

Barnes, born in London, England, but of Jamaican descent, has 14 caps and three goals for the Reggae Boyz. He made his senior international debut in May 2015, scoring against Venezuela. The Dynamo captain scored two goals in Jamaica's run to the 2015 Gold Cup final.

In line with the Tournament Regulations, these rosters are binding and will serve as the basis for teams to select their final 23-player squads that will take part in this summer's Copa America Centenario from June 3-26. Final player rosters must be submitted to the Copa America Centenario Local Organizing Committee by Friday, May 20.

A player listed on a team's final tournament roster may only be replaced in the event of serious injury up until 24 hours before his team's first match, after the Local Organizing Committee has received a detailed medical assessment and only after the acceptance by the tournament Medical Committee that the injury is sufficiently serious to prevent the player from taking part in the Competition. Injury replacements must come from the preliminary 40-player roster.
