HARRISON, N.J. – The New York Red Bulls were expecting hefty call-ups ahead of the FIFA international calendar, and several national sides were happy to oblige.

Three Red Bull defenders, including Karl Ouimette, Kemar Lawrence and Roy Miller have all been selected to represent their respective countries for international matches.

Canada called upon Quimette, who has become a regular under head coach Benito Floro. The young central defender will take part in Canada’s home-and-away series against Dominica on June 11th at Roseau, and against on June 16th in Toronto at BMO Field.

Ouimette, who has made five appearances and four starts for the Red Bulls this year, will join his national side in Orlando on June 7th for training camp and will stay with the National Team for nearly two weeks.

The home-and-away series kick-starts a busy summer for Canada as the FIFA World Cup qualifiers will lead into July’s 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup. Should Canada win the series against Dominica, they’ll go into the draw for the third and fourth rounds of qualifying. The draw for those rounds takes place on July 25 and would see another home-and-away series in the third round in September before entering the fourth round in a four-team round robin competition that would start in November.

Early season hero Kemar Lawrence, 22, earns his second Jamaican call-up since joining New York, set for Jamaica’s participation in the Copa America. The Reggae Boyz take on Uruguay on the 13th, Paraguay on the 16th and Argentina on the 20th to complete the group stage. Lawrence has 14 caps with the national team.

Finally, the oft-injured Roy Miller joins Costa Rica in Madrid as the Ticos take on Spain on June 11th. He will remain with the Red Bulls for Costa Rica’s June 6th match against Columbia.
