Michael Ricketts, President of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) said it was welcome news that the Sports Development Foundation (SDF), is to fund the world-cup bound women’s team to the tune of in excess of US$150,000 (approx.J$20 million).

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz have come in for praise from the man who guided Jamaica’s men’s team to their very first World Cup two decades ago – Rene Simoes.

After being thrust into the limelight at the crucial moment, Reggae Girlz back-up goalkeeper Nicole McClure has admitted it was tough being left out of the starting line-up but stayed ready to deliver when called upon.

The United States clinched its eighth consecutive berth at the FIFA Women's World Cup with a 6-0 semifinal victory over Jamaica at the 2018 CONCACAF Women's Championship at Toyota Stadium on Sunday night.
