Je-Vaughn Watson and Juan Agudelo will be getting a different kind of preseason workout as the two New England Revolution teammates will square off for their respective national teams later this week.

Watson has been called in by Jamaica for what will be the first of two friendlies for the Reggae Boyz as they will also play Honduras on February 16th this international break. Jamaica did not qualify for The Hex despite making the finals of the Gold Cup in the summer of 2015 as they were unable to carry over that form into World Cup qualifiers. They will have Carribbean Cup semifinals in June to warm up for the Gold Cup later this summer.

Agudelo and the United States have already played one friendly, with the US drawing Serbia yesterday 0-0. Agudelo was a late substitute off the bench and had a late chance stuffed out by the Serbian defense in stoppage time.

The United States and Jamaica will play Friday, February 3rd from Finley Stadium in Chattanooga, Tennessee at 7PM EDT.
