Derby County striker Theo Robinson: I want to join the Boyz club
THEO Robinson would welcome the chance to play international football for Jamaica.
Derby County's top scorer is being considered for a call-up after being watched by Jamaica's head coach, Theodore Whitmore.
He and his assistant, Alfredo Montesso, recently spent 12 days in England on a scouting mission to check on players eligible to represent Jamaica, who are known as the Reggae Boyz.
Robinson was on a list of nine players being checked on and the Jamaican officials attended Derby's Championship clash at Millwall last month.
Robinson, born in Birmingham, is eligible through his grandparents. His grandad, Ezekiel, lives in Jamaica.
"If the call comes, I would be very honoured to play for my country," said the 23-year-old, who has hit nine goals in 19 games this season.
"I have spoken to my mum and my grandad and they are excited about the possibility.
"Any player would want to play international football but it is all about me staying in form for Derby County and staying in the team.
"I feel I'm doing better than last season and it is always good to progress.
"I just take each game as it comes and try to get as many goals as I can but it is all about the team winning, that is the main thing. To get the goals is a bonus."
Jamaica are still hopeful of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.
They are in a group featuring the United States, Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and Panama.
"I would love to get involved in helping them in qualification," said Robinson.
Jamaica's first qualifier of the final group stage is away to Mexico on February 6
They then play Panama and Costa Rica on March 22 and 26.
