Another schoolboy, in Kingston College and Harbour View midfielder Fabian Grant, has been added to the Reggae Boyz squad to face Honduras in a friendly international at the BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas, USA on February 16 at 8:30 pm.

Grant, who scored a spectacular goal from 20 yards to give Kingston College the lead in the Walker Cup final, which they won 2-0 by beating Jamaica College, joins Cornwall College's and Montego Bay United's Jourdaine Fletcher as the other schoolboy in the team. He replaces Alvas Powell.

There is just one more change to the squad that played the USA on Friday, with Portland Timbers' Andre Lewis coming in for Omar Holness.

The rest of the squad reads: Romario Williams, Cory Burke, Je-Vaughn Watson, Kemar Lawrence, Sergio Campbell, Damion Lowe, Oneil Fisher, Andre Blake (GK), Ryan Thompson (GK), Owayne Gordon, Kevon Lambert, Dwayne Ambursley, Ladale Ritchie, Shamar Nicholson, Micheal Binns, Ewan Grandison and Rosario Harriot.
