Williamson on World Cup alert

4 September 2015

Lee Williamson is eager to make up for lost time by representing the Reggae Boyz this evening in a World Cup qualifier.

The Rovers midfielder was last called up to the Jamaican squad seven years ago, but injury prevented Williamson from featuring.

After missing out then, the 33-year-old is keen to earn his first cap for Jamaica as they embark on their World Cup qualification quest with two matches against Nicaragua this week.

"I can't wait," said Williamson. "It's exciting times, and I am glad to be back in the squad.

"I am pleased with myself. It's been a while now, seven-odd years since I came over, and this time I'm looking to play.

"I still haven't left my hunger and I can't wait to get out there. Hopefully, I'll start in the first game and the second game as well. It's going to be an exciting game, and I'm looking for a good performance."

Tonight sees beaten CONCACAF Gold Cup finalists Jamaica start at home in Kingston, before the return fixture in Managua, Nicaragua on Tuesday September 8th.

Jamaica join the 2018 qualification process at the third stage, whilst the Nicaraguans have already knocked out Anguilla and Suriname to get this far.
