Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino has not discussed Jamaica opportunity with Danny Rose

The left-back qualifies for the Reggae Boyz through his grandfather.

Last season he was one of the most derided players in the Tottenham Hotspur team. Left-back Danny Rose struggled to win over fans during the 2013-14 campaign after several poor performances from the player.

There is no doubting his improvement this term.

That good form saw him receive an England call-up at the start of the season for games against Norway and Switzerland. However he did not play in those games, which appeared to alert another nation to his availability.

In the same week it was revealed Harry Kane almost played for Republic of Ireland the London Evening Standard reported earlier in the week that the Tottenham star could be the subject of an approach from the Jamaican national team over his potential availability to the Reggae Boyz.

Rose qualifies through his grandfather and is said to be just one of many English based players Jamaica are hoping to recruit for their invitational presence at the Copa America in the summer.

Now his boss Mauricio Pochettino has spoken about the topic. In quotes from London 24 the Argentine gaffer has stated:

“I haven’t spoken to him about that.

“So far he has been the best left-back this season. His performances have been great. But they are not my decisions, it’s always Roy Hodgson’s decision.”

So it seems Poch is convinced that Rose should be in the England squad next Thursday, but he has serious competition.

Leighton Baines, Kieran Gibbs, Ryan Bertrand and Aaron Cresswell are all other potential options Roy Hodgson must consider for the upcoming England fixtures.

When you look at it that way, maybe Jamaica is calling for Rose.
