    KINGSTON, Jamaica -- Midfielder Andre Lewis is hoping to make his Jamaica debut on Thursday, when the Reggae Boyz face CONCACAF-rival Honduras in Houston, Texas.

    The Portland Timbers 2 player has represented the Reggae Boyz at the U-17, U-20 and U-23 levels.

    “I have been on the fringes of the national team since the 2012 Caribbean Cup, however, I am yet to make my senior debut,” said Lewis, who has played club football in North America since January 2014. “I am so pleased though to be back with the senior team and I am hoping I can make my debut and help my country get the victory.”

    Lewis played for Jamaica in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup, appearing in three matches and scoring in a 1-1 draw against France. His international objectives, though, reach far beyond past achievements.

    “I would like to not only make my debut, but I would like to help Jamaica win the Caribbean Cup and also to be part of Jamaica’s squad for the CONCACAF Gold Cup,” the 22-year-old Lewis finished. “Accomplishing these goals would make me really happy, but one step at a time. Honduras will be a tough game, but I feel with the quality in the squad that we have what it takes to win.”

    Honduras is unbeaten in its last three matches against Jamaica, posting a 2W-1D-0L record over that stretch, including a 2-2 draw in their last meeting on October 15, 2013.
