Things are about to get ‘Chippy’ in CONCACAF. Welcome to the Reggae Boyz Leon Bailey! The Bayer Leverkusen star confirmed on Wednesday that he will represent his country after accepting a call-up from national team coach, Theodore Whitmore, and the Jamaica Football Federation.
Bailey previously accepted a call-up to join the national setup last October during CONCACAF Nations League qualifying. However, he decided against joining the national team after a breakdown in communication between himself and the J.F.F.
He is expected to lead Jamaica’s charge for a third straight CONCACAF Gold Cup final appearance and first title this June when the Boyz open their tournament at the National Stadium against Honduras.
