the acting Jamaica They finished sixth in this year’s CONCACAF World Cup zone qualifiers in Qatar, and they have to wait at least four more years to participate in the World Cup. After that, they will have a great opportunity, which the “reggae boys” intend to take advantage of.
All because the next World Cup in 2026 will be held on stadiums in the United States, Canada and Mexico, that is, the three best teams from the CONCACAF region. And since the hosts always have a guaranteed match in the main tournament, the door to the World Championships opens for smaller teams from this region, including Costa Rica, Honduras or Jamaica. And the more so, that the World Cup in 2026 will be the first in which not 32 but 48 teams will play.
Great Jamaica Plans. Up to ten players from the Premier League and Championship
The Jamaica national team already includes many well-known players from playing in English stadiums. Recently, the country began to represent Mikhail Antonio Z West HamoAnd, to this should be added, among others, Leon Bailey of Aston Villa, Andre Gray Queen Garden Keepers Or Ravel Morrison of Derby County. But the Jamaican federation is working on more “meals” than England, and their plans are impressive.
Who is encouraged to play for Jamaica? The list includes up to ten names, including Demarai Gray from Evertononce at Barcelona and Bayern, Max Aarons from Norwich City, Rico Henry from Brentford, and Morgan Gibbs-White from Wolverhampton Wanderers (recently loaned to Sheffield United) and Crystal Palace’s Nathan Ferguson.

There were representatives of the country in everything – Jamaican national team selector Paul Hall and Fitzroy Simpson.
– Paul is very determined to upgrade to world Cup In the year 2026. There are many players who can help us and will be interested in it. These players want to play in the World Cup Finals, and Paul believes they can help the team move to the next level in the CONCACAF region. “I want to have as much quality and talent as possible, so that the whole team develops with the players and the coach,” Simpson said in an interview with the Daily Mail.
Paul intends to give these players the opportunity to become full-time citizens and play at venues like Azteca Stadium in Mexico. Of course, England is the home of many of these players, but there are definitely more contenders out there. You can be a special player and you will never be in the England squad. I also think I will be able to play for the England national team one day, but I decided to play for Jamaica and that was one of the best things I’ve done in my life, he added.
Jamaica is currently ranked 64th the team FIFAalthough last year it could boast of 45th place in the ranking.
