Murillo named to Panama, Lawrence Called for Jamaica; NYRB II’s Flemmings also named for Reggae Boyz
HARRISON, N.J. (June 7, 2017) – Three members of the New York Red Bulls organization have been named to preliminary 40-man rosters for the upcoming CONCACAF Gold Cup. Michael Amir Murillo has been named to the Panama squad, while Kemar Lawrence and NYRB II’s Junior Flemmings have been named to the Jamaican roster.
Lawrence, a left back, has been a mainstay with Jamaica over the last few years, solidifying a spot in the Starting XI since joining New York in the early stages of the 2015 season. He has made 34 appearances for the Reggae Boyz since 2013. For the Red Bulls, he has played 13 games in 2017, with a goal and three assists.
Murillo, 21, has made nine appearances for Panama at the senior level, earning his first cap in 2016. The defender joined New York at the beginning of 2017 on loan from San Francisco FC in Panama.
Flemmings, now in his third season with NYRB II, has appeared at multiple youth levels for Jamaica, but has yet to earn a cap with the senior team. The Kingston native has four goals in 11 appearances for NYRB II this season.
Red Bull Arena will host a double-header to kick off the Gold Cup on July 7. Canada and French Guiana will meet first, followed by Costa Rica Honduras. Tickets to all Gold Cup matches are available by visiting GoldCup.org.
