HARRISON, N.J. – Three players from the Red Bulls’ organization have been named to provisional 40-man rosters for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Michael Amir Murillo has been named to the Panama squad, while Kemar Lawrence and Red Bull II’s Junior Flemmings were picked for the Jamaican roster.
Lawrence, a left back, has been a mainstay with Jamaica the last few years, solidifying a spot in the Starting XI since joining New York in 2015. The 24-year-old defender has made 34 appearances for the Reggae Boyz since 2013. He has a goal and three assists for New York this Major League Soccer season.
Murillo, 21, has made nine appearances for Panama, earning his first cap in 2016. The defender joined the Red Bulls on loan from San Francisco FC (Panama) this season.
Flemmings, in his third season with NYRB II, has appeared at multiple youth levels for Jamaica, but has yet to earn a cap with the senior team. The 21-year-old Kingston native has four goals in 11 appearances for the United Soccer League side this season.
Red Bull Arena will host a doubleheader to kick off the Gold Cup July 7. Canada and French Guiana will meet in the opening game, followed by Costa Rica vs. Honduras.
