The winger was handed his maiden call-up to the Jamaica squad as reward for his impressive form during Swansea s Championship promotion push this season.

And earning his first cap, Lowe was on target for the Reggae Boyz in their 4-1 loss against the USA in Austria.

The ex-Wigan man's fine 70th-minute finish represented another incredible landmark for someone who was playing non-league football less than five years ago.

Lowe was signed by Pompey from Hampton & Richmond Borough in January 2017. Only three months later, he scored the goals that secured Paul Cook's side League Two promotion in a 3-1 win at Notts County.

He also bagged for the Blues in the Checkatrade Trophy final triumph over Sunderland at Wembley in 2019.

Lowe's two-and-a-half-year stay at Fratton Park came to a close in July 2019 when he departed for Wigan for a fee of around £2.5m. In total, he scored 30 goals in 119 appearances for Pompey.

The Harrow-born ace bagged 10 times in his sole season at the DW Stadium before he was sold to Swansea last summer for a cut-price fee after the Latics entered administration.

And he's been a key player as the south Wales outfit bid for the Premier League.

Lowe has scored 10 goals in 41 games, with the Swans currently sitting third in the table.
