Jamaica eye Mason Greenwood call-up after his Getafe switch

The striker has one cap for England but could still switch international allegiance

Mason Greenwood, who currently plays for Getafe on loan from Manchester United, could also change the country he represents, as the Jamaican national team has acknowledged considering him for future squads.

Despite having been previously selected by England, according to FIFA regulations, a player with dual nationality can switch national teams if they have not played in a maximum of three matches. In this case, Greenwood has only appeared once, as he made his debut under Gareth Southgate's management in September 2020 in a UEFA Nations League match against Iceland, so he could adhere to this circumstance to make the switch.

This possibility, of course, would not be feasible if he did not have Jamaican heritage. After learning of this opportunity, Heimir Hallgrimsson, the Jamaican national team coach, publicly expressed his interest in including the former Manchester United forward in the future: "We would like to have the best talent on our team," he declared.

The coach of the Reggae Boyz knows that, despite all the off-field issues surrounding Mason, he is a player with potential that Jamaica currently lacks.

Greenwood has already opened his goal-scoring account this season (in Getafe's draw against Celta at Balaídos) and seems to have rediscovered the form he displayed at Old Trafford.

A version that appeared to have been forgotten due to the controversies that kept him away from the field and for which both the 'Red Devils' and the 'Three Lions' fans no longer want him back.
