Greenwood is eligible for the Caribbean nation through his parents.

Mason Greenwood is set to be offered the chance to switch international allegiance to Jamaica, according to reports. The Manchester United forward has already played for England at senior level in a competitive game but is still free to switch to Jamaica.

Greenwood has scored 29 goals in 105 appearances for the Red Devils since making his debut in 2019.

Mason Greenwood to be offered chanced to switch from England to Jamaica.

Greenwood will be offered the chance to switch international allegiance from England to Jamaica, according to The Telegraph.

The Man United forward, 19, has represented England at underage level and he made one appearance for the country of his birth at senior level.

Greenwood was a second-half substitute against Iceland in a Uefa Nations League fixture last September.

He was sent home after the game, along with England teammate Phil Foden, for breaching Covid-19 quarantine guidelines in Iceland.

The forward, however, is still eligible to switch international allegiance to Jamaica, as, per Fifa rules, he has made fewer than three competitive appearances for England and is under the age of 21.

He qualifies for the Caribbean island through his parents.

Greenwood was named in England’s extended squad for Euro 2020 but withdrew before the tournament began due to an injury.

Jamaica national team.

Jamaica have been targetting British-born players of Jamaican descent to declare for their national team as they seek to qualify for the 2022 World Cup. The Reggae Boyz last reached the tournament in 1998, their first and only appearance at the World Cup.

West Ham United forward Michail Antonio recently declared for Jamaica, as did Andre Gray, Ravel Morrison and Kemar Roofe. The nation’s most famous current player, and brightest prospect, is arguably Bayer Leverkusen forward Leon Bailey.
