Reggae Girlz One In Pole Position For 2019 World Cup

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz are in a no holds barred position as they step up their quest in their bid for a place in the 2019 World Cup in France.

Following their 9-0 thrashing of Cuba on Thursday they are just one win away from realizing their goal.

The Reggae Girlz’ latest win has pushed them into the semifinals of the CONCACAF Championships for the first time since 2006.

They will now face off with the USA in semi-final two of the CONCACAF Women’s Championship on Sunday at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

A victory for the Reggae Girlz will see them qualify for a historic berth in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.

A loss would mean Jamaica would go to the third-place playoff and take on the loser of the Canada versus Panama clash on Wednesday.

The winner there will qualify for the women’s World Cup while the loser would take on Argentina in an intercontinental playoff in November.

Jamaica will be looking to be the first Caribbean team to qualify for the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
