Hutchinson in Preliminary Jamaica Squad
Tuesday, 27th Feb 2024 16:36

Blues loan forward Omari Hutchinson has been named in a 60-man preliminary Jamaica squad for the CONCACAF Nations League Finals next month.

The Reggae Boyz play the US in a semi-final in Arlington on Thursday 21st March during the next international break with the winners facing either Panama or Mexico in the final with the two losers taking part in a third/fourth-place play-off, both on Sunday 24th March, also in Arlington. The squads will be reduced to 23 prior to the games.

Hutchinson has previously won two Jamaica caps in friendlies but in the past has opted not to join up with the squad when called up for competitive games, presumably to keep his international choices open, and it’s likely the same will be the case again this time around.

Prior to his two games for Jamaica, a 6-0 defeat away to Catalonia in May 2022 and a 1-0 loss at home to Trinidad & Tobago in March the following year, the 20-year-old Chelsea attacker won caps with England at U17 and U19 levels.

Either option is good for him internationally; of course, Jamaica is nowhere near the same level as England, which limits his hopes of making a major international tournament such as the Euros/World Cup with our vast pool of top-quality players. However, if he stays put with an option to play for England, and gets good gametime at Chelsea, he could very well be a top talent both domestically and internationally, and the call-up only merits his form for us.

With so many match winning performances for us his transfer value is increasing exponentially. Should we get promoted and he wanted to stay with us permanently to secure game time, could we realistically afford him? Assuming the above I guess it would be a good problem to have!

I don’t see him playing a minute for Chelsea next season. I could be wrong but Chelsea have so many attacking players many whom they’ve paid very large fees for. I suspect he’ll be out on loan again and hopefully with us. That’s not wishful thinking, just realistic. In fact as an academy product there is a chance they’ll sell him to help with their FFP and to fund another splurge.

He’s needs better then Jamaica, plus we don’t want to lose him at such a crucial time of the season.

Glad for the lad, but no injuries please.

Bobble… world wide exposure ? Honestly it won’t. And that’s not my opinion, checking the viewing numbers. Cr*p standard too.

not a player we wish to lose at that stage

Selling him wouldn't do much for Chelsea's FFP as they paid a fee to buy him from Arsenal. He wouldn't be "pure profit" like Gallagher etc.

He knows what's best for him dosent need any advice from on here.
