Leon Bailey has been left out of the Reggae Boyz team as punishment for breaking curfew rules. This announcement was made by Heimir Hallgrimsson, the head coach of the Jamaican national team. The Aston Villa winger is set to miss the upcoming games in the CONCACAF Nations League Finals.
The Icelandic coach revealed that the Aston Villa will be suspended together with forward Trivante Stewart. They are being punished for breaking the rules during the last training camp. They were seen outside the hotel after the curfew time of 10pm.
Hallgrimsson told journalists that the two players missed the bus the next morning and they didn’t sleep at the hotel.
Hallgrimsson said the players admitted that they had made a mistake and they even apologized to the squad. He said that he had forgiven them and they would be free to return to the squad in the next camp. He emphasized that he matter had been dealt with internally and the case is now closed. The two players will not face further consequences.
Bailey was part of a 3-2 win over Canada in his last game for his nation. The game was part of the Nations League tournament. It happened in Toronto in November,2023.
The Reggae Boyz’s next will be against rivals USA in the semi-final of the same competition. The Jamaicans will be hoping to pull off an upset over the star-studded mighty United States team. A win over USA will secure a clash against Mexico or Panama in the Dallas final. The match against USA is expected to happen next week on March 21,2024.
The Jamaican squad is also expected to be without Demarai Gray. The Al-Ettifaq winger is serving a suspension ban for being sent off in the last game against Canada.
However, the Saudi-based forward could feature in the final and he has even been included in the squad.
Bailey’s absence has created an opportunity for forward Bailey Cadamarteri. The Sheffield Wednesday striker will be part of the Jamaican national team for the first time in his career. The 18-year-old goal scorer is the son of Danny Cadamarteri, a retired Everton forward.
