The Jamaican national team, Mexico’s opponent in the 2023 Gold Cup semi-finals, surprised locals and outsiders with their performance in this competition. However, when reviewing their call, the surprise factor gets a bit lost in estimating the quality of the team
The Jamaican team has 7 active players in the Premier League, and they have made a significant leap in the quality of the Reggae Boys squad.
Those players are West Ham’s Michail Antonio, Aston Villa’s Leon Bailey, Everton’s Demari Gray, Fulham’s Bobby Reid, Brentford’s Ethan Pinnock, Wolverhampton’s Dexter Lempikisa and newly promoted Luton Town’s Amari Bell.

In addition to these elements, the Jamaican national team also includes 6 players who are part of teams from other divisions of England.
Meanwhile, Shamar Nicholson of Ukraine’s Dynamo Kyiv is also an important card for the Jamaican team. The rest of the team is complete with items from the United States’ MLS and USL Championship.
With their current squad, Jamaica has the third best team in the Gold Cup with nearly €95 million.
The USA national team is barely over two million considering this call, while Mexico leads the category with an approximate value of €170 million. Panama, for its part, barely reaches 15 million in its workforce.
