Reggae Boyz Call-Up For Mariappa

4 November 2015

Palace defender Adrian Mariappa has been selected for Jamaica's squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Haiti.

Mariappa, who captained his side in their last game against Nicaragua which saw them reach the group stage of the CONCACAF qualifying process, will face Panama in Kingston on Friday 13th November before traveling to the island of Haiti for the second game of their double header the following Tuesday.

The Reggae Boyz only just scraped through into the second phase of qualifying thanks to a late goal against Nicaragua, which then saw them drawn in a group alongside Panama, Haiti and Costa Rica, with the top two advancing into the fifth and final round to try and secure their place in Russia in 2018.

Mariappa has won 33 caps for his country, 21 of which have come during his time at the Eagles. Should he play in both matches, it would remarkably take him up to 16 appearances in 2015 alone, having played in both the Copa America and the Gold Cup during the summer.
