Wednesday’s jet heeled winger Jermaine Johnson failed to cover himself in glory on Wednesday night after being sent off for Jamaica in their clash with Nigeria.

Johnson, a star in the Owls’ 2-1 victory over rivals Sheffield United at the weekend, has fast become a firm favourite for Jamaica boss John Barnes thanks to his impressive performances in the blue and white stripes.

But the former Bradford City man could be set for a spell on the sidelines as far as international matches are concerned after seeing red in the first half of Jamaica’s 0-0 stalemate with Nigeria.

Johnson got a straight red card for an altercation with Nigeria’s Taiye Taiwo just a minute before half-time at the clash at Millwall’s The Den ground.
