Local-based Reggae Boyz Chevone 'Messi' Marsh, who went to a trial in Finland early last week, will join the camp in Florida.

Goalkeeper Andre Blake has joined the squad while regular captain Rodolph Austin is expected to fly in to Florida today.

Jamaica will play their first match in the Copa American Centenario against Venezuela on Sunday, June 5 in Chicago.

The tournament opens on June 3 with the United States facing Colombia.
