FOOTBALL: Miller earns Reggae Boyz recall

Goalkeeper Duane Miller has been recalled to the Jamaica squad for the country's debut at Copa America in June.

The custodian was named in Jamaica's official squad list to the tournament in Chile along with 29 other players.

The Reggae Boyz' number one goalkeeper Andre Blake has been ruled out of the tournament after suffering a serious left knee injury. 

Miller will vie for the vacant number-one spot with Ryan Thompson and Duwayne Kerr.

Striker Giles Barnes, who plies his trade for the Houston Dynamo has also forced his way into the squad after only recently being given a nod from Reggae Boyz coach Winfried Schafer.

Damion Hyatt is a new name to the Reggae Boyz roster, along with Michael Arantes and Richard Dixon.

The other names on the squad list are more familiar with the black, green and gold.

One name that is noticeably missing is, Jermaine Beckford, who has been in a rich vein of form for Preston North End in the English Championship.

Beckford is on loan from Bolton Wanderers and has scored 15 goals in 19 games since December.
