Humphrey Features For Jamaica

11 September 2013

PNE winger Chris Humphrey was handed his first international cap of the season as he came on as a substitute in Jamaica’s 1-1 draw with Costa Rica in Kingston.

Despite the shock result the home side remain bottom of the CONCACAF World Cup Qualifying group, while the visitors stay in second place. 

Humphrey pulled on the number seven shirt for his country, the same as he wears for PNE, and was brought on for the last six minutes of the match at Independence Park.

Jamaica were 1-0 down thanks to a Randall Brenes goal in the 74th minute, but battled back to equalise in stoppage time.

34-year-old attacking midfielder Jermaine Anderson netted the all-important leveller, with just seconds on the clock, to hand the hosts a second draw in World Cup Qualifiers in just four days.

Elsewhere on the international scene, Iain Hume was able to return to Simon Grayson’s squad for North End’s match against Oldham.

There were initial doubts as to whether the 29-year-old striker would be back in time from Canada’s training camp in Spain to feature against the Latics.

Both Humphrey and Hume will now be available for selection for Preston’s game against Stevenage on Saturday afternoon.
