About an hour after the Jamaica Football Federation(JFF) announced the squad for Copa America which is a few weeks away, Leon Bailey took to social media to inform fans that what they are seeing is “Misleading Information”.

Notably, Craig Butler also stated in a conversation with Jamaican Youtuber Ryan LFC that the people in charge of kicking the team, “jump the gun, and list Leon when Leon neva agree to”.

The forward players picked for the squad include Shamar Nicholson, Renaldo Cephas, Michail Antonio, Demarai Gray, Kaheim Dixon, and Leon Bailey. Notably, many people were surprised to see Bailey in the squad after he recently announced that he would be taking a break from the team.

Back in March of this year, Leon Bailey, 26, announced via an interview that he would be taking a “break” from the Jamaican national team. The announcement was made on the heels of his suspension for a crucial match against the USA.

It’s unclear what will happen in the future, but with the fact that Bailey made a public statement about being included, it would appear that he is not happy with the situation and may not take part in the tournament. Jamaica will first play against Mexico on June 22nd.
