James Comley is in line for his first senior international cap after joining up with the Montserrat squad this week.

Comley, who has made one England C appearance, qualifies for the Carribean team, which is a British Overseas Territory, through his father.

Montserrat are ranked 170 in the world and take on Curacao in the first round qualifying games over two legs. The first leg is in Curacao on March 27, before the second leg takes place on March 31.

The winners are then set to take on Cuba in two more qualifying games, before the winners of that tie get to the World Cup group stage qualifiers, along with the likes of Mexico and the USA.
