Dawkins ready for Reggae Boyz

Simon Dawkins is awaiting clearance to join Jamaica's bid to reach the 2014 World Cup finals.

Dawkins, on loan at Aston Villa from Tottenham Hotspur, has applied for citizenship after talks with the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

The 25-year-old was born in London but is eligible to represent Jamaica because both his grandparents were born on the island and he is hoping his registration is confirmed in time for him to face Villa team-mate Brad Guzan later this year.

Talks with the JFF were encouraging and citizenship should be formalised well before Jamaica host USA on June 7 for a World Cup qualifier.

"I'm in the process of having my citizenship done, so I would be eligible to play," Dawkins told the Villa website. "I missed the game against Mexico at the beginning of February. That was a game I wanted to play in but I couldn't.

"So hopefully I can get all that sorted soon. I'm the process of registering myself and Jamaica are very interested in me too.

"It would be great to be involved in international football. We're in the last stages of the World Cup qualifiers. It would be massive to be involved in that, and to play for Jamaica would make my family very happy, especially my grandparents. They would be very proud."

Jamaica are currently fourth in their CONCACAF group with one point from one game in the region's hexagonal stage.

Six teams meet in a home-and-away format between February 6 and October 15, with the top three sides qualifying directly for the tournament in Brazil.
