Correct me if I'm wrong, but hadn't Lawrence already had some big performances for Jamaica when we signed him? Not a knock on Pendant, just saying there was already some stuff on Lawrence's resume that indicated he could ball when we signed him.
Not enough to convince people he was better than Connor Lade or that he was anything more than an "island scrub." Or that he was good enough to play for DC United.
The biggest games Lawrence played in for Jamaica before joining the Red Bulls was in the prestigious Caribbean Cup where his team unseated mighty champions Antigua and Barbuda.
