Fears that Reggae Boyz striker, Ricardo Fuller, would not be available for Sunday’s friendly international against Caribbean arch-rivals Trinidad and Tobago have been dismissed, with the player expected to join up with the rest of the team after arriving in the island today.

Initially, it had been thought that Fuller, who suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder and was forced to leave the field on a stretcher while playing for English Premier League club Stoke City against Newcastle last weekend, would not be fit in time to face the Soca Warriors.

However, further checks revealed that there had been no major damage suffered and the 30-year-old forward, who was passed fit after undergoing a medical, was able to play the last 12 minutes of Stoke’s weekend encounter against Blackburn.

Short spell

Fuller suffered a similar injury in 2007, but on that occasion was also lucky to have a short spell on the sideline as the socket was rolled back into the joint.

Fuller is expected to arrive in the island at 4:25 p.m. today and begin training tomorrow with the team, which begun training at the National Stadium yesterday. A few members of the squad are yet to fly in for the encounter.

Fuller has been involved in Jamaica’s 2002, 2006 and 2010 World Cup campaigns. The player last featured for Jamaica at the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup, which saw the team eliminated in the first round.
