At least 14 English-born footballers of dual-nationality are eligible to represent the Barbados senior national football team on international duty.

Sheffield United and former Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster, Chelsea goalkeeper Jamal Blackman, Nottingham Forest left-back Tyler Blackett and Stoke City attacking midfielder Tom Ince are some of the biggest names who qualify to play for the Barbados Tridents through their parents.

AFC Wimbledon’s 19-year-old Nesta Guiness-Walker and 21-year-old New York Red Bulls midfielder Dru Yearwood are also eligible.

Barbados could dip into the English talent pool to boost their squad ahead of the second round of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers 2022, the Concacaf Gold Cup slated for this summer and the 2026 World Cup. (AGB)
