Rodolph Austin's Jamaica drawn with Argentina in Copa America Group B

Jamaica face a daunting task having been drawn alongside Argentina in Group B of Copa America.

Jamaica are ranked 113th in the FIFA World Rankings, but they won the Caribbean Cup trophy earlier this month, defeating Trinidad and Tobago in the final on penalties.

They have some familiar names in their side; Wes Morgan, Nyron Nosworthy, Lloyd Doyley, Adrian Mariappa, Simon Dawkins and Chris Humphrey, but the star of the show is their captain.

Wearing the armband for Winfried Schafer's Reggae Boyz is Leeds United star Rodolph Austin, who at 29 has racked up 71 caps and six goals for Jamaica since his first cap back in 2004.

A Leeds regular, Austin is a fan favourite at Elland Road, but will be playing his football away from the comforts of West Yorkshire next summer.

Instead, Austin will be jetting off to Chile to take part in Copa America 2015 after Jamaica were invited to take part in the South American tournament.

The draw for the group stage of the competition was made on Monday night - and Austin won't have liked what he saw.

Jamaica were plunged into Group B, meaning they will face Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay when the tournament kicks off next summer.

That means that Austin will be going up against the likes of Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero and of course, Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

It's going to be an uphill struggle for Austin and his Jamaica side when they do take on Argentina, and many will expect the scoreline to resemble the 5-0 thumping when the two sides met at the 1998 World Cup in France.

Yet it gives Austin a chance to go up against the best in the world - and that can surely only be good for Leeds and their manager Neil Redfearn.
