Modou Barrow and Lee Williamson have both received international call-ups for matches to be played next week.

Barrow has been selected by Gambia for their 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Cameroon, whilst Williamson has been called up by Jamaica who begin their World Cup 2018 qualifying campaign with a double-header against Nicaragua.

Having drawn with South Africa 0-0 in their opening qualifier back in June, the Scorpions of the Gambia now face a Cameroon side who beat Mauritania 1-0 in their first match.

The game takes place at the Independence Stadium in Bakau on Sunday 6th September. Barrow will hope to add to the one senior cap earned to date.

Joining up with the Reggae Boyz for the first time is Lee Williamson.

Beaten CONCACAF Gold Cup finalists back in July, Jamaica begin their World Cup 2018 quest with two matches against Nicaragua next week.

Friday 4th September sees Jamaica start at home in Kingston, before the return fixture in Managua, Nicaragua on Tuesday September 8th.

Jamaica join the qualification process at the third stage, whilst the Nicaraguans have already knocked out Anguilla and Suriname to get this far.

If Williamson features for the Reggae Boyz, they will be his first international honours.

• Elsewhere Darragh Lenihan is with the Republic of Ireland Under-21 squad for a friendly against Qatar and a UEFA U21 qualifier against Andorra, whilst defender Mark Edgar links up with Northern Ireland's Under-19s for a three-day training camp.
