Jamal Lowe, the Swansea City striker who has played just once for Jamaica, aims to bounce back from his recent club disappointment by adding to his goal tally for the Reggae Boyz.
The 26-year-old rising star, who was playing at semi-professional level until he joined Portsmouth for the 2016-17 campaign, missed out on promotion to the English Premier League (EPL) after his side were beaten 2-0 at Wembley Stadium by Brentford in the Championship play-off final on 29 May.
Ivan Toney, a target to pledge his allegiance for the Boyz, drove home a 10th-minute penalty with Denmark’s Emiliano Marcondes scoring 10 minutes later to end Lowe’s dream of playing in the top tier next term.
Lowe was called up by Jamaica for last month’s exhibition match against the United States in Austria and scored an outrageously cheeky goal in their 4-1 defeat. Lowe took to social media about his disappointment.
Lowe, who scored 14 goals for Swansea this season and played in all 49 league games, posted to Instagram: “Been an emotional few days, but this feeling can only fuel us for next season. Thank you for all the support and welcoming in my first year at the club. Recover, recharge and go again.”
Although he is not part of the Reggae Boyz’ squad that are currently in Japan, Lowe is expected to be named in Jamaica’s squad to tackle next month’s CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States. If he impresses head coach Theodore Whitmore on the international stage then undoubtedly he will be included in the region’s final FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
