West Ham United forward Michail Antonio lasted 70 minutes in his first game for Jamaica, but could do little as his side fell to a 3-0 defeat to Panama.

Antonio, who has been snubbed by England boss Gareth Southgate, switched nationality to Jamaica with the aim of helping them qualify to the 2022 World Cup to be staged in Qatar.

However two defeats in the qualification campaign has left them bottom of the group, with no points and ground to make up to progress.

Antonio has started the Premier League season on fire, sitting top of the scorers chart with four goals from his first three games of the season.

The 31-year-old’s strong start to the league is also reflected in West Ham’s form, with the Hammers second in the Premier League.

He will now have to put the disappointment of the debut defeat behind him and make the long 10,500-mile journey back to London.

The Hammers failed to sign an out and out striker to rival Antonio and will be counting on him this weekend when they travel to Southampton.

Antonio is not the first Jamaican-Brit from London to play for the Reggae Boyz, with Watford star Adrian Mariappa also representing the team.

QPR and former Watford striker Andre Gray also plays for the Caribbean island.

Five other English  players who can still play for Jamaican

  • Ivan Toney Born in England to Jamaican parents, Toney could still play for the Reggae Boyz.
  • Nathan Redmond Born in England to Jamaican parents, Redmond has represented England at all youth levels but is now tempted to switch allegiance to his parents’ homeland. 
  • Mason Holgate The Everton centre-back will wait on England, but he has the option of playing for Jamaica which is where his grandparents came from.
  • Isaac Hayden The highly-rated midfielder was born in England, but his mum is Jamaican giving him the option of playing for them. 
  • Max Aarons The Norwich midfielder is reported to have already secured himself a Jamaican passport, and will switch nationality if he feels his chances with England are limited.
