No Damion Stewart in Jamaica Squad For Chile Friendly

Update: According to the QPR Official Site, Stewart IS in the Jamaica squad for the Chile game! Assuming that's correct, then the original blog post "No Damion Stewart in Jamaica Squad For Chile Friendly" is obviously incorrect! However a couple of Jamaica newspapers and the unofficial Reggaeboyzs site doen't list him. (They list Donald Stewart)
