Kenwyne Jones muscles his way onto The National Sport front page on Saturday, January 9 after making his Al Jazira debut in the draw against Al Wasl.

Jones, 31, signed for Jazira from Cardiff City as a short-term replacement for the injured Mirko Vucinic, while fellow new signing Angel Lafita also made his debut.

Neither Jones nor Lafita found the scoresheet in the 2-2 draw but the result will encourage new Jazira manager Henk Ten Cate, who took over from Abel Braga with the club lying 10th in the Arabian Gulf League table.
