Romario Williams has been named to the Jamaican squad that will take on Canada at BMO Field on Saturday, September 2. The call-up means Williams will miss the Battery’s crucial match in Louisville this weekend.

Williams will return to the Jamaican National Team after a successful run in the Gold Cup this summer. The center forward scored two goals and helped the Reggae Boyz reach the final of the tournament for the second consecutive year.

Williams has the best strike rate in the USL, scoring a goal every 92 minutes. His team-high 15 goals have him one behind fellow Jamaican striker and former Battery man Dane Kelly for the league lead. Kelly will join Williams on the Jamaican squad for Saturday’s friendly in Canada.

Jamaica vs. Canada kicks off at 7:00 PM EST. The Battery will take on Louisville at Slugger Field at 5:00 PM EST. Fans can watch Charleston Battery vs. Louisville City FC live on charlestonbattery.com or locally on MyTV Charleston.
