Ethan Pinnock out of Jamaica squad for games in Japan

Defender withdraws after late finish to Brentford season

2 June 2021

Ethan Pinnock has not joined up with the Jamaica squad for their three games in Japan this month after the late finish to the season with Brentford.

The Brentford centre-back made his debut for Jamaica in March against USA and had been included in Theodore Whitmore's group for games against Japan, Serbia, and Japan's Under-23s over the next ten days. 

However, the 28-year-old played the full 90 minutes on Saturday against Swansea City, his 48th appearance of the campaign, as we secured promotion to the Premier League following a 2-0 win at Wembley. That was the same day as the Jamaica delegation flew out to Japan and it was therefore decided that Ethan would not join up with the group. 

Jamaica are currently preparing for the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup, the biennial international men's football championship organized by North America, Central American and Caribbean's football ruling body CONCACAF. That tournament takes place in July in USA. They will also begin qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in September.
