Michail Antonio Scored A Stunning Long Range Goal For Jamaica Against USA

Michail Antonio scored a stunning long range goal on Tuesday night, as Jamaica drew 1-1 with USA in their World Cup qualifier.

Antonio has been in great form for West Ham United this season, scoring six goals in just 10 Premier League appearances, and Jamaica were hoping he'd bring that form to the national team.

On Tuesday however he went above his domestic form, by scoring a type of goal he's never scored in England's top tier, and not at all in seven years.

The 31-year-old scored a stunning goal, from outside the area, which he's never done in the Premier League, as the Reggae Boyz earned an excellent point against USA.

Antonio had previously been called up to the England squad by both Sam Allardyce and Gareth Southgate but has never played a match for the Three Lions.

Earlier this year it was revealed that he would switch allegiance to Jamaica, and he wanted to help them qualify for next winter's World Cup.

Unfortunately he wasn't able to get a Jamaican passport in time for the start of the qualifying campaign, or for last summer's Gold Cup.

However he made his debut in September, in a qualifying loss to Panama, and last week opened his account in a 1-1 draw with El Salvador.

On Tuesday, Jamaica had a repeat of that result as they held their superior visitors to a draw, though it's unlikely to help their chances of reaching Qatar.

With six games of the qualifiers left, Theodore Whitmore's team are seven points behind fourth place Panama, and sit in sixth place in the table.

Only the top three go through to the World Cup automatically, with fourth place going into a inter-confederational play-off.
