Ravel Morrison is set to make his international debut for Jamaica next month after receiving his first call-up for the Caribbean side.
The ex-Manchester United star could play his first game for the team when they play in a friendly against Catalonia in Spain next month.
Morrison, 27, who joined Middlesbrough on loan from Sheffield United in January, has represented England at various youth levels but was never selected for the senior side. The midfielder has had a troubled career after showing much promise at Old Trafford, with unsuccessful spells following at the likes of West Ham, Cardiff and Lazio.

Jamaica are preparing for World Cup 2022 qualifying and hope the addition of Morrison to their ranks will boost their chances.
He has held discussions with Jamaica chief Roy Simpson and is line to play his first game on March 30th, when the team travel to Barcelona.
Morrison, who was born in Manchester, gained Jamaican citizenship in 2018. He had been tipped as a star of the future after emerging from United’s youth system at the same time as Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard – with Sir Alex Ferguson hailing him as one of their brightest talents in decades.
But he has failed to make the impact that was hoped for him and he has joined the tenth club of his career after joining Boro last month.
