Owls jet-heeled winger Jermaine Johnson has been rewarded for his fine performances in the blue and white stripes this season by receiving a call-up to the Jamaica squad.

Johnson has been selected to be part of the Jamaican squad to come up against Guatemala next week, and will be departing Hillsborough for his homeland following the Owls’ clash with Southampton today.

The 27-year-old has already snapped up 40 starts for his country, netting four goals along the way, and will be hoping to impress the Jamaican management staff in the friendly match on Sunday, November 18.

But the winger won’t miss any matches for Wednesday, returning in time for the Owls’ trip to London to face QPR in a vital clash on Saturday, November 24.

JJ has been in inspirational form for Wednesday of late, after Brian Laws had dropped him earlier in the season for his inconsistent performances.

Let’s hope the boost for the winger gives him some extra hunger to impress and fire Wednesday to three points against the Saints this afternoon.
