Seven players from the previous friendlies against Trinidad and Tobago as well as notable returns make up Jamaica's Concacaf Nations League squad to face Mexico on Sunday.

The 23-man squad was released today as head coach Heimir Hallgrimsson made notable call ups from their previous camp, including Wolves Dexter Lembiksia, Dunbeholden's Demario Phillips and Mount Pleasant's Trivante Stewart.

Brentford's Ethan Pinnock and Minnesota United's Kemar Lawrence make returns to the senior team after notable absences and English-born Jonathan Russell of Barnsley gets his first senior call up.

Jamaica will most likely need to beat Mexico in Mexico City to advance to the Concacaf Nations League semi-finals, which will take place in Las Vegas in June. Mexico will face Suriname this Thursday before they face Jamaica on Sunday. The Reggae Boyz currently lead their group with five points, while Mexico are second with four.
