10/13/2010: Francis In First Cap Plays Part In Jamaica Goal, Win Over Trinidad

Wearing yellow for club and now country: Crew youngster Francis gets First Jamaican cap.

According to the Jamaica Gleaner, Francis had a pretty good game in his debut for Jamaica:
One of two newcomers to the team, 24-year-old Columbus Crew midfielder, Shaun Francis, was involved in the lead-up play to the penalty, when he supplied the ball inside, from which Eric Vernan was eventually toppled to earn the goal-making opportunity.

A largely- left-sided player, Francis was more impressive than the other starting debutant, the much-talked-about teen, Marvin Morgan Jr. Both showed a lot of confidence, but their production, especially that of Morgan, never quite matched their self-belief, on the night.
