New Tampa Bay Rowdies defender Damion Lowe will spend some of the next month defending his country.
Lowe will play for Jamaica’s national team twice in February, including a friendly match against the U.S. Men’s National Team.
This will be Lowe’s third call up to the senior national team, after making his debut in October 2016 against Guyana and later starting against Suriname in November.
“It’s an amazing opportunity to once again represent Jamaica,” said Lowe. “Both matches will be very competitive and will help us prepare for the important year ahead. I’m very excited to join my teammates in camp and am looking forward to the first match against the U.S.”
The Reggae Boyz will take on the U.S. Men’s National Team on Friday, February 3 at Finley Stadium in Chattanooga, Tenn. That match will kick off at 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast live on FS1 and UniMas.
Lowe will return to Tampa Bay after the match against the U.S., but will rejoin Jamaica’s squad a few weeks later when they take on Honduras on Thursday, Feb. 16, at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston, Texas.
The friendlies will help Jamaica prepare for the Scotiabank CFC Men’s Caribbean Cup semifinals in June and the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July.
Lowe, 23, has spent three seasons with the Seattle Sounders, the MLS champion. Last year, he spent the season on loan to Minnesota.
