Jamaica FA is targeting England-based players as they target to participate in the 2026 World Cup.
The Reggae Boyz last appeared in the World Cup in France 1998 tournament but have not qualified for the global showpiece since and The Sun now reports that the Caribbean country wants to boost their bid for the World Cup in the Americas with a host of English-based players.
The nation has West Ham star Michail Antonio in their ranks but feels that a host of players in England could be helpful in achieving their goals with a number of players already earmarked for call-up.
