Two schoolboys will be pressing to further impress Reggae Boyz coach Winfried Schafer ahead of the home-and-away friendly international series between Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago.

Insamnia Cohen of Manchester High and Khesanio Hall of St Elizabeth Technical High School have been drafted into Jamaica's 22-member squad for the matches tomorrow in Montego Bay and November 19 in Port-of-Spain.

The squad also includes seven United States-based players.

Those players are Darren Mattocks, Omar Daley, Alvas Powell, Deshorn Brown, Jason Johnson, Michael Seaton and Je-Vaughn Watson.

Also included is top local striker Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson.

President of the Jamaica Football Federation, captain Horace Burrell says the games, which fall on FIFA dates, will be viewed as the launch of Jamaica’s 2018 World Cup journey.

Jamaica’s Reggae Boyz have won the last two previous meeting 1-0 in Kingston in 2010 and 3-1 away that same year.

Trinidad and Tobago’s last win over the Reggae Boyz was in 2001, a 2-1 win in the Caribbean Cup at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Trinidad.
