West Ham wing-back Michail Antonio ignored by Jamaica

West Ham's Michail Antonio was not one of the six England-born players called up by Jamaica for the first time, as a 19-man squad to face the USA was named.

The 30-year-old, who qualifies for Jamaica through his parents, has been approached by the Caribbean nation but is still to decide whether to switch.

Antonio was picked in England squads in 2016 and 2017 but did not play.

Watford striker Andre Gray and Reading centre-back Liam Moore are among those to receive their first call-ups.

Wigan defender Curtis Tilt, Blackburn left-back Amari'i Bell, Brentford centre-back Ethan Pinnock and Rotherham centre-back Wes Harding were the other players included.

Jamaica's friendly against the USA will take place on 25 March in Wiener Neustadt, Austria (17:00 GMT).
