Pittsburgh Riverhounds goalkeeper Jahmali Waite has been called by Jamaica for their international friendly against Argentina on September 27 at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey, USA.

Waite is one of three goalkeepers named to the 23-member squad, which is without captain and first-choice custodian Andre Blake.

Dillon Barnes of Queens Park Rangers and Kemar Foster of Waterhouse are the other goalkeepers in the squad.

This is the second call-up to the senior team for Waite, who was called into camp with the Reggae Boyz in June.

Currently, in his first season in the professional ranks with the Hounds, Waite has conceded 15 goals in 16 appearances so far this season.

His most recent appearance was another clean sheet, as the Hounds played front-running Louisville City FC to a scoreless draw at Highmark Stadium on Saturday.

Waite is currently sixth among Golden Glove-eligible goalkeepers with a 0.96 goals-against average this season. The 23-year-old has made 25 saves and seven shutouts while helping the Hounds reach the USL Championship Playoffs for a fifth consecutive season.

The squad also includes English Premier League players Michail Antonio of West Ham United and Leon Bailey of Aston Villa.
