Reggae Girlz forward Kayla McCoy said it is difficult to accept that she will not be able to play for her country in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup that began last Sunday but has committed to try to help her team in any way she can.

The 22-year-old former Duke University star who was drafted by the Houston Dash in February partially tore an ACL when she hyper-extended her knee during the Jamaicans’ last warm-up game against fellow World Cup debutantes Scotland on May 28.

A subsequent MRI revealed the worst possible news for McCoy, just over a week before the start of the tournament.

“It’s definitely disappointing to have come all this way to get injured a week before the competition and it’s difficult not being able to help the team on the field and play,” McCoy told Sportsmax.TV while adding that she is grateful for the chance to remain with the team even though she is unable to play.

“But it really means a lot that my coaches both with Jamaica and back home allowed me to stay on with the team. It has allowed me to still participate in the World Cup experience and be with the team as they compete and make history!”

Now that the tournament has begun, she anticipates that she will be able to contribute in some way to the campaign.

“While I am here I hope to help my team in any way that I can and fully take in the whole experience, and maybe one day I’ll have the chance to get back here.

The Reggae Girlz lost their opening match on Sunday 3-0 to Brazil.
