Swindon Town midfielder Anthony Grant made his International debut for Jamaica in a vital World Cup Qualifier on Thursday night.

Having established himself as a key cog in the heart of the Reds' engine room, Grant received his first International call-up by Jamaica at the start of this week.

The all-action and dominating midfielder was included in Theodore Whitmore's team for their three World Cup Qualifiers this month, with the Reggae Boyz hoping to qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 

And Grant made his International debut for Jamaica in their crucial game against Mexico at the Estadio Azteca on Thursday night, starting the game and impressing on the biggest stage.

Grant put a real shift in and was on the field when Shamar Nicholson equalised for Jamaica after Alexis Vega had opened the scoring for the hosts.

However, Grant was taken off in the final minutes of the game and, shortly after, Henry Martin scored the winning goal to give Mexico the win.

It was still an impressive outing for Grant and an incredibly proud moment for The General, and we wish both him and Jamaica the very best of luck for their remaining two World Cup Qualifiers this month.
