The players had breakfast at 9 o’clock this morning and after the 11:30 am (12:30 pm Jamaica time) team meeting, they headed for lunch at mid-day.
They are scheduled to depart the hotel at 4:00 pm for their first training session at the nearby Centro de Capacipicion, using field number one. The training session is slated for 4:30 pm.
