West Ham’s Michail Antonio set to switch allegiance from England to Jamaica

Football News

Michail Antonio is expected to transfer loyalty from England to try and inspire the 2022 World Cup qualification campaign for Jamaica.

In England squads under Sam Allardyce and Gareth Southgate, the West Ham striker, 30, was called, but never made his Three Lions debut.

And in the pecking order, with a host of younger players ahead of him, the Telegraph predicts that Antonio would turn his loyalty to Jamaica.

In 2016, the ‘Reggae Boyz’ attempted to secure his services, but in favor of England, Antonio refused their advances.

The Jamaican Football Federation is known to want the forward available in September for the World Cup qualifiers against Costa Rica and Mexico.

Antonio is set to link up with Ravel Morrison, a former Manchester United man who recently switched allegiance to England and made his 27-year-old Jamaica debut.

For England Under-16s, 17s, 18s, and 21s, Morrison played but never did enough to earn a call-up to the senior squad.

As head coach Theodore Whitmore looks to add to their sole World Cup appearance in 1998, Fulham’s Bobby Decordova Reid also represents Jamaica.
