Jamaica’s Under-17 Reggae Girlz were unsuccessful in their bid to claim a spot in next year’s staging of the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup in Uruguay.

This after they were defeated by Puerto Rico on penalties in their third place playoff at the CFU Championship on Sunday.

The match was played at the Stade Sylvio Cator Stadium in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

The game went to penalties after the teams fought to a 1-1 draw in regulation time.

With this result, Puerto Rico finishes third and has earned the final available spot for next year’s CONCACAF Championship (World Cup qualifiers) in Nicaragua. Puerto Rico remains on course to claim a spot at the 2018 FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup.

The two finalists at the CFU Championships – Bermuda and Haiti booked automatic qualifying spots for the CONCACAF round of World Cup qualifiers.
