Historic! Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz Qualify For The 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup
On Wednesday October 17, Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz etched their names in the history books when they became the first Caribbean team to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
The Reggae Girlz defeated Panama 4-2 on penalties in their third place playoff match at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship.
Jamaica had a great start with Khadija Shaw finding the back of the net in the 14th minute.
Panama equalized in the 75th minute via their team captain Natalia Mills.
Jamaica’s second goal came five minutes into extra time courtesy of 16-year-old Jody Brown.
However, in the 115th minute, Lineth Cedeno expertly lobbed a shot over the Jamaican shotstopper Sydney Schneider to queue up penalties.
Panama can still qualify for next year’s World Cup in France if they get the better of Argentina in a two-legged playoff.
