The 30-year-old was approached by the Caribbean island nation back in 2016, but he chose to represent the Three Lions internationally.
The West Ham star was called up by former England manager Sam Allardyce in his first squad in August 2016 for a 2018 World Cup qualification match against Slovakia.
However, Antonio was an unused substitute. Current Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate invited the versatile forward to his squad for the friendly match against Germany and the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Lithuania in March 2017.
However, he withdrew from the squad after picking up a hamstring injury. He has not been called up since then, and despite his fine form over the last 18 months for West Ham, a recall does not appear to be on the cards.
Since he is yet to make his Three Lions debut, Antonio is qualified to play for Jamaica and they have now moved to secure his international future.
He could feature in their CONCACAF qualifiers in September against Mexico and Costa Rica, and it will be interesting to see how things go.
