The tournament, to be hosted in USA, is a centennial celebration of the Copa America and will take place between 3rd and 26th June.

Jamaica boss Winfried Schafer picked his squad to face Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela, led by captain and Leicester City talisman Wes Morgan.

Donaldson has eleven goals from his 40 appearances in the league this season, finishing as the club’s top scorer. His latest goals came in the 2-2 draw with Preston North End, where he scored both.

The 32-year-old earned his international debut in 2015, and already has four caps to his name. He will face some stiff competition to get playing time in the tournament, with America-based Giles Barnes & Simon Dawkins joining Finland-based Dever Orgill and Jamaica-based Allan Ottey in the squad.

Also in the squad is Chelsea defender Michael Hector, who spent the 2015-16 season on loan at Reading, making 30 appearances and scoring once. He can be pleased with his time at the Madejski, and many Royals fans were sad to see him return to the capital following the culmination of the season.

The 23-year-old has 11 previous caps for his national team.

Birmingham fans… what do you think of the news? Can Donaldson lead his team to glory? Will you be hoping he’ll make the difference, or praying that he doesn’t get injured? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!
