Ethan Pinnock will join up with the Jamaica squad this week for their home 2022 World Cup Qualifier against Panama.
As per a statement from the Premier League last week, our players will not travel to countries where they would have to quarantine on return – Red List countries. Therefore the defender is set to miss Friday’s trip to Mexico and next Thursday’s game in Costa Rica but will be involved on Sunday as The Reggae Boyz host Panama at the National Stadium Independence Park, kick-off 11pm UK time.
The 28-year-old made his Jamaica debut against the USA in March of this year, having previously played for England C while with Dulwich Hamlet.
Saturday’s draw against Aston Villa was Ethan’s 92nd appearance for Brentford since joining in the summer of 2019. He has played every minute in the Premier League so far this campaign, setting up Sergi Canos for our opening goal against Arsenal. He also captained the side last Tuesday night as we beat his former club, Forest Green Rovers, 3-1 in the Carabao Cup Second Round.
Jamaica face 14 games between now and March as they seek to secure their spot in Qatar next winter. The top three sides from the eight-team league will qualify automatically with the side in fourth facing a side from South America, Asia, or Oceania in the Intercontinental Play-Off.
