and live on Freeview channel 276
The 29-year-old has missed the Hatters’ last five Premier League games after picking up a hamstring injury in the 2-1 home defeat against Burnley, but was still selected in the Reggae Boyz squad by head coach Heimir Hallgrímsson.
Bell, who has 17 caps to his name, joins former Everton and current Al-Ettifaq winger Demarai Gray as potential absentees for the match against a side ranked 45th in the FIFA rankings, 10 places above Jamaica.
Speaking to the Jamaica Gleaner, Hallgrimsson said: “There are some injury doubts around Bell and Gray, but I’m hoping that they will be involved as I’m not writing anyone off.
"If they become available, we will play them, but they will be subjected to late fitness tests.
“The players in their various clubs are doing very well.
"If you look at our selections, all the players are playing 90 minutes almost every game, and they’re doing well, and that’s important for the national team.
"As a team, we’ve been playing better, and I feel like we’re playing longer spells of good football.
After tonight’s clash, Jamaica then head to the BMO Field in Toronto for the return fixture on Tuesday, November 21 as they look to qualify for the semi-finals in March of next year.
