In what proved to be a very competitive match up last night, Jamaica’s women worked arduously to come away 1-0 winners against Trinidad and Tobago in the final of the Caribbean Football Union under-20 tournament at the Anthony Spauldings Sports Complex.
The game’s only goal was scored by Khadija Shaw who was also named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.
“It was a tough game as we anticipated, so credit to the girls,” Jamaica’s coach, Xavier Gilbert said. “We should be stronger for the tournament in January; there were a few persons out with injuries today.”
The result means that both Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago will partake in the 2014 CONCACAF Under-20 Women’s Championship to be held in the Cayman Islands. The eight-team tournament will allow the top-three teams qualify for the Under-20 Women’s World Cup.
