Watford defender Lloyd Doyley feels 'very ready' to make the step up to international football
4:27pm Thursday 21st March 2013 in Sport
Lloyd Doyley says he feels ready to make the step up to international footballer as the Watford defender prepares to represent Jamaica in a World Cup qualifier against Panama tomorrow.
The 30-year-old made his 398th appearance for the Hornets in their defeat against Barnsley on Saturday and flew out to join the Reggae Boyz the following day.
"I am quite experienced and I feel very ready," Doyley told the Jamaican Online Star. “It has been a long time coming, and so I feel like I am ready to help Jamaica to progress past Panama."
While Doyley joined up with his new teammates for the first time this week, he will be amongst many familiar faces.
Doyley said: "I know a lot of Reggae Boyz because I have played against them in England, and so I feel very good at the moment in the team.
“I have heard about the stadium being an awesome atmosphere but I am used to playing in front of big crowds, and so that won't faze me, but I am looking forward to it.”
