Five Jamaican referees have been selected to officiate at the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup starting July 10 in the United States.

Among the five is Jassett Kerr-Wilson, who will be creating history as one of two female assistant referees to stand in this competition for the first time ever. The second female will be from the USA.

 Referees Daneon Parchment and Oshane Nation and assistants Nicholas Anderson and OJay Duhaney are the other Jamaicans selected for duty. Both Parchment and Nation completed the Video Assistant Referees (VAR) training in Costa Rica last weekend.

The quintet will now be involved in a hectic preparatory program both locally and internationally.

    Inter star Romelu Lukaku is not for sale according to the Serie A club's CEO Beppe Marotta, amid speculation about the Belgium striker's future.

    Lukaku has been linked with a move away from the Italian champions following the departure of head coach Antonio Conte, as the Nerazzurri struggle financially due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    The 28-year-old has reportedly caught the attention of his former club Chelsea and Premier League champions Manchester City.

    Speaking ahead of Inter's friendly with Pergolettese, Marotta quashed talk of Lukaku leaving San Siro.

    "From our side, we can yes absolutely, Lukaku is not for sale," Marotta told Sportmediaset. "Lukaku is an important piece on the chess board available to [head coach} Simone Inzaghi."

    Lukaku scored 24 goals from 36 league outings in 2020-21, while he also provided 11 assists.

    Only in 2016-17 for Everton did the Belgian score more (25) in a single campaign in one of Europe's top five leagues.

    Lukaku is expected to train for the first time under Inzaghi on Monday.
