Chile reception: FC Edmonton’s Lance Laing off to Copa America By Steven Sandor Posted on June 2, 2015 5 0 572 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Lance Laing FC Edmonton left winger Lance Laing will be heading to South America. He was named as part of the final 23-man Jamaican roster for the 2015 Copa America. Jamaica has indicated that this roster will also be in place for the upcoming Gold Cup. In Chile, Laing’s Jamaican side is in a group with Paraguay, Uruguay and some other left-footed superstar named Messi and his Argentine teammates. FC Edmonton coach Colin Miller has indicated that preliminary indications were positive that Laing could remain with his NASL side through to this coming weekend’s game against the Tampa Bay Rowdies. Laing will miss the final game of the spring season, against the Indy Eleven. If Laing joins the Jamaican national side for the Gold Cup, he will be miss much of FCE’s July schedule — how many games will depend on how far Jamaica goes in the Gold Cup. Laing has established himself as the best left-sided player in NASL; combining speed with arguably the best crossing ability of any player in the league. He has also scored twice this year on vicious free kicks.
