Motherwell star Chris Humphrey insists he had no idea he was breaking rules, after being suspended from the Jamaica international squad.
The Well winger broke a curfew on the squad after a match against Panama and was sent home rather than stay on to play against Guatemala and against Antigua and Barbuda.
The 24-year-old apologised and took responsibility for the error but insisted he was told there was a ban on going out.
Humphrey said: “I believe there has been a communication problem. After the game against Panama I did go out. It was late after the game and to unwind I went out for an hour.
“I had not been informed of any curfew and no one told me we were not allowed to go out. I fully accept I did go out and on that basis I have apologised to the team and accept responsibility.”
Humphrey had finally been given the go-ahead to play for the Caribbean nation after a year of red tape was finally resolved.
He added: “It was a huge honour to be asked to represent Jamaica and I am very disappointed I will not be available to try and help the team in the next two games.”
