Jamaica keen to convince Mason Greenwood to switch allegiance from England

Jamaica wants Manchester United young striker Mason Greenwood to change his allegiance from England.

Greenwood, regarded as one of the best strikers of his generation, was snubbed by England for the Euros with Gareth Southgate saying that he would consider the player in the future even though reports indicate that the player wanted to be involved in the tournament.

The Telegraph now reports that Jamaica wants to use the player's disappointment in their favor as they want him to play for them at the international level.

Jamaica is keen to make it to the next World Cup and is quietly identifying players who can represent them from other nations having got West Ham's Michail Antonio, Ravel Morrison, Andre Gray, and Kemar Roofe in the past.

While still 19, Greenwood has already made 105 appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 29 goals and making 10 assists. He was named in Southgate’s extended 33-man squad ahead of the Euros but was chopped off the final squad.

While he has represented the junior England teams, the striker who qualifies for Jamaica via his parents has just a solitary senior cap for England.

This is not the first time that Jamaica has targetted England stars either. The likes of Frank Sinclair, Robbie Earle, and Marcus Gayle all featured for Jamaica at the 1998 World Cup.
