VANCOUVER, BC – Vancouver Whitecaps FC defender Javain Brown has been called up to Jamaica's men's national team for two upcoming international friendlies this month ahead of the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup.
The Reggae Boyz will first take on Qatar on Wednesday, June 15 at 8 a.m. PT and then play Jordan on Monday, June 19 at 4 a.m. PT, with both matches taking place at Wiener Neustadt Ergo Arena in Austria.
The defender was last called up to Jamaica in March for a Concacaf Nations League match against Mexico, starting and playing 45 minutes for his country. In total, the 2021 MLS SuperDraft selection has represented his country at the senior international level 20 times since making his debut for Jamaica against Trinidad & Tobago in 2017. After joining the national team program at the U-17 level, the Kingston native made five appearances for the U-20 national team and four appearances at the U-23 level, including three matches at the 2019 Pan American Games in Peru.
This year with the 'Caps, Brown has scored one goal and added three assists in 17 starts and 20 appearances across all competitions. Last Wednesday, the fullback, who has also seen time at centre back, helped Vancouver secure back-to-back Voyageurs Cup titles for the first time in club history.
All-time, Brown has tallied two goals, as well as nine assists, in 60 starts and 76 appearances for the 'Caps across three seasons.
