Watford defenders Adrian Mariappa and Nyron Nosworthy have been called up by Jamaica for their friendly with Guyana on Friday.

Nosworthy has been in the Jamaica squad before back in 2007 but this is a first call-up for Mariappa, who qualifies as both of his mother's parents are from the island.

Mariappa, who will fly out to join Nosworthy in Jamaica today, has enjoyed a superb season and won the Watford Observer Player of the Year Trophy and the Players' Player of the Year crown.

His performances have attracted the interest of Premier League clubs, with Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic both making bids for the 25-year-old in January and newly-promoted Reading are also reportedly interested.

Nosworthy has also had a good campaign following his move from Sunderland, which was made permanent in January.
