Mason Greenwood, after parting ways with Manchester United, is reigniting his career at Getafe and may also revive his international prospects, but this time with Jamaica.
The ex-Red Devil seems to be acclimating to life in the Spanish top-flight, having notched his inaugural goal for Getafe in their recent 2-2 standoff with Celta Vigo in La Liga. Remarkably, this strike marked his first goal since the onset of 2022.
While the road back to the England squad appears ambiguous, Jamaica’s coach Heimir Hallgrimsson has expressed interest in integrating Greenwood into the Reggae Boyz lineup.
“We would like to have the best talent on our team. If he gets his former fitness and former levels, then for sure he would have that level to help Jamaica,” Hallgrimsson confirmed in a press briefing.
The striker’s English international career thus far has been brief, consisting of a single cap earned in 2020. However, his Jamaican heritage means he’s eligible to represent the Caribbean nation, provided the Jamaican football federation formally petitions FIFA.
Notably, Jamaica’s current squad boasts talents familiar to Premier League audiences, such as Ethan Pinnock, Demarai Gray, and Michail Antonio.
Following the pause for international fixtures, Greenwood’s quest for resurgence continues when Getafe meets Real Betis on the pitch come October 21.
