Jamaica international Junior Flemmings insists he was not bothered by playing somewhat out of position for the national team during the recently concluded CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign.

Flemmings, who currently plies his trade for Phoenix Rising FC in the USL Championship, was deployed by Whitmore as a central attacking midfielder in five appearances. 

The 23-year-old, who on occasion played as a forward during his high school years, has typically been deployed as a wide player New York Red Bull, Tampa Bay and now Phoenix.  For Flemming, who had some noteworthy games in the position, it was a case of stepping up to get the job done.

 “To be honest, it was a moment of ‘Wherever the coach needs me to play, I need to go out there and give 110%,’ whether or not it was my preferred position,” Flemmings said.

“At the end of the day, I’m representing my country and you have to do whatever to get those results. It was just one of those tournaments where I had to play out of position to help the team, and I did,” he added.

The tournament marked seven appearances for the player who made his debut at the 2017 Caribbean Cup in Martinique against French Guiana.
