West Ham United striker Michail Antonio and Reading defender Liam Moore, are the latest players to pull out of the Reggae Boyz squad for the October window of the Concacaf final round of World Cup Qualifiers which starts tomorrow (Thurs) against the United States.

Antonio in a statement yesterday said he will not be joining up with the Jamaica National Squad, after himself, West Ham United and Jamaica, all agreed that given the logistical and travel difficulties involved at present, its better for him to remain with his club in London at this time.

Central defender Moore, who captains Reading in the English Championship, has also been ruled out because of injury along with Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson who his club says has been withdrawn as a precautionary measure.

The withdrawals have left coach Theodore Whitmore with just 17 outfield players and 3 goal keepers from which to select a starting eleven for tomorrow’s encounter against the Americans.
