New England Revolution defender Je-Vaughn Watson is on Jamaica's final 23-man roster for this summer's Copa America Centenario.

Watson and Jamaica are part of Group C and will kick off the tournament by facing Venezuela on June 5 in Chicago. Four days later, they will challenge Mexico in Pasadena before playing Uruguay in Santa Clara on June 13. The top two teams in the group will advance.

Watson is no stranger to the Jamaican National Team as he's earned 54 caps. While usually spotted along the backline while with the Revs, Watson typically plays in the midfield for the Reggae Boyz. He recently collected his second-ever international goal, scoring against Costa Rica in a World Cup Qualifier on March 26.

Watson, who was acquired via a trade with FC Dallas, has made 10 appearances for the Revolution this season. The 32-year-old has played every defensive position, tallying one assist.
