Theo Robinson: Played for Jamaica last month

Beckford, on loan from Leicester, has been sidelined for two months with a hamstring injury and has yet to make his first appearance for Jamaica with whom he qualifies through family connections.

Robinson, who spent 18 months at Huddersfield before joining Derby in May 2011, returned to Town on loan last month and has made four appearances in his second spell with the Terriers.

He made his only appearance for Jamaica last month when replacing Sheffield Wednesday winger Jermaine Johnson as a substitute in a goalless draw in Mexico.

Jamaica are scheduled to play Panama on March 22 in Kingston before travelling to play Costa Rica at the Estadio Nacional de Costa Rica four days later.

Beckford has missed Huddersfield's last 10 games after suffering a recurrence of a hamstring injury during the 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace in January.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
