New York Red Bulls defender Kemar Lawrence has joined the Jamaican National Team ahead of their friendly against Canada on Saturday, September 2.
The game is a rematch of last month’s thrilling CONCACAF Gold Cup quarterfinal. Jamaica won that matchup 2-1 and knocked Canada out of the Gold Cup.
The two teams will face off at BMO Field in Toronto on Saturday.
Lawrence started each game of the Gold Cup for his country. He scored a stunner free kick goal to top Mexico in the semifinals to help Jamaica advance to the final. He assisted in the Gold Cup final game in their loss to the United States, their second Gold Cup final loss in three years.
Lawrence will miss New York's match against FC Dallas on September 2.
