HAVING represented his country before, veteran Tivoli Gardens winger Christopher Jackson is now eyeing success for his club first and foremost, but remains open to playing for his country again, should he be called on.

The Tivoli Gardens defender was last selected to the senior Reggae Boyz local based squad's training camp in May 2008, but has been a key fixture for Tivoli Gardens season after season.

"At age 34 it's kind of hard but not impossible because Jermaine 'Tuffy' Anderson did it," said Jackson ahead of a mega-Red Stripe Premier League clash at home against Boy's Town tomorrow.

"It's always the dream to don the country colours even though I did it before." he added.

"To represent the country is always going to be significant; it would be nice, but honestly I would have to put in the work and hope for the best, do my best and know that I have to give 110 per cent and the sky is the limit," he added.

Jackson added that his team is looking forward to beat Boy's Town tomorrow.

"It's the same approach but we have to just train and come hard for the game, despite Boys' Town just being a stone throw away from us. We always want to win that game. We will go out there for this game and give 100 per cent and look for the best result."
