Andre Anthony Gray is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Watford and the Jamaica national team.

A product of the Shrewsbury Town youth system, Gray came to prominence after scoring 57 goals in 111 appearances in a two-season spell with Luton Town. He earned six caps for the England national C team from 2012 to 2014, before being called up to the Jamaica national team and making his debut in March 2021.

Born in England, Gray is of Jamaican descent and is eligible to represent either Country internationally. Gray's goalscoring record for Luton in the final months of the 2011–12 season raised the attention of the England C team and he was named in the squad for an International Challenge Trophy match against Russia U23 in June 2012. He made his debut in a 4–0 defeat, playing the full 90 minutes. He was later called into the squad to face Belgium U23 in September 2012. He came on as a half-time substitute for Stephen Brogan and scored his first international goal with the winner in a 2–1 victory. The win saw England C qualify for the semi-final of the International Challenge Trophy. He played in the semi-final on 5 February 2013 against Turkey A2, which England C lost 1–0. Gray captained England C in the second half of a 6–1 friendly win over Bermuda on 5 June 2013, scoring the team's sixth goal. He appeared again in a 2–2 friendly draw with Czech Republic U21 in November 2013, starting the match and lasting 70 minutes before being replaced by Dan Fitchett. Gray played in a friendly versus Jordan U23 at the King Abdullah Stadium in Amman on 4 March 2014, starting in a 1–0 victory and was replaced by Dan Fitchett at half-time. Gray's return to the Football League in June 2014 meant that he was no longer eligible for England C. He won six caps and scored two goals.

In March 2021 he was one of six English-born players to receive their first call-up to the Jamaica national team. This came about due to a plot by the Jamaican Football Federation to intentionally call-up a number of English players with Jamaican backgrounds in a bid to improve the national team's chances of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup. On 25 March 2021, Gray made his debut for Jamaica against the United States. Source.
