Jamaica Women's World Cup 2023 squad: Full team announced
With Manchester City's Bunny Shaw among their ranks, they certainly won't be lacking in the goals department, with the striker having bagged 55 times on the international stage in just 38 appearances. Should the Reggae Girlz hold out defensively, Shaw has the ability to pop up with a winner whenever needed. Don't rule them out just yet.
Jamaica are in World Cup Group F with France Brazil and Panama, their first World Cup fixture is against France on July 23 and below is their most recent 24-player team from April's friendlies, ahead of announcing their final World Cup

Very much an upset, NOR has a star studded line up
But alas like WI golden UB and dem, maybe was one World Cup too many and past their best

Canada 0-0 Nigeria
Philippines 0-2 Switzerland
Spain 3-0 Costa Rica
Japan 5-0 Zambia
England 1-0 Haiti

The Haitians had the Poms under quite a bit of pressure, but they weathered the storm, and it took a silly penalty to give them a narrow win.

camos 2023-07-22 11:11:10 

Haiti looks good against a good England.

Chrissy 2023-07-22 11:11:11 

USA v Vietnam 3-0

In reply to camos

Yes man. I watching..with just a bit more finish in the box, they would be more dangerous and the keeper
is wonderful keeping them in the game.

Yes, football takes over from cricket for now for ME. Been at it day and night.

big grin

hubert 2023-07-22 11:37:19 

England scrape thru with a 1-0..Haiti gave them some anxious moments and will
be no one's beaten stick going forward.

China Denmark next up on watch list. I am enjoying the women's game. It has come
a long way in a short time as World Cup entertainment.

In reply to Halliwell

Yes sir. Haiti ??? That country has the most problems of any in the world,I believe but
football has been a passion for them and both men and women are never to be counted out. Considering the
lack of resources and poverty , I marvel at what they have been able to produce.
Much to be admired there. Hope they continue to improve too.

hubert 2023-07-22 14:06:28 

In reply to Chrissy

Tough loss on China too but Denmark are deserving as they use a clear advantage ..height, to win this one.
I always like Asian teams and their constructive,lovely ball movement,boundless energy and
constructiveness on the field..(The Reggae Boyz should be watching and learning from them).
But the Koreans, Japanese,Chinese who will match any team with their ground game and cohesiveness,always
find themselves at a disadvantage in height as most opponents have much more tallet players who
always prove decisive against them in and around the 6 yard box.
That was some fine header to beat them too.
I was rooting for the Chinese women but it was not to be but they always pleasing to watch and are one
of the few countries to have a World Title to boot.
Love their play and hope they go far in this Tournament.

“In Haiti, there are so many talents, not only in soccer, that just don't get a chance. I got that chance to be in an academy, but there are top players and top talents everywhere. It's important to try and put an eye on Haiti, to not miss out on so many talents. I hope that one day more people get the chance to get out of there.”

Yeah, Jody seems to be struggling from the injury a few days ago. The lack of friendlies leading up to this is now impacting the players. The JFF is not doing its best with the Girlz.

In reply to CWWeekes
The defence played better than their male counterparts and the real Blackwood showed up.
Should be playing for WI.

However Shaw's second yellow was a cheap on. They should appeal to the Presiding Rules
committee and get it overturned if possible.
Good result . All the more critical to have Shaw back without missing a game, if they can swing
that deal

hubert 2023-07-23 12:05:44 

In reply to FanAttick

Yes, But there is noting that says either kit must not include some combination
of the national colours.
I may wrong but i doubt it.

When I see another country playing without any of their national colours in a variation of prominence then I will believe.
You could see US in all white, England too, full red too, etc

Third world countries always on the banana side.

SPENCER (GK) - 8.5
SPENCE (DM)- 9.0

Other random rankings
BROWN (LW) - 5.5
SWABY,A (CB) - 7.0
SWABY,C (CB) - 7.0
PRIMUS (M) - 6.0
SHAW (F) - 8.0
SAMSON (CDM) - 6.5


The right wing (#21) was poor. The substitute Soulan (#6) would not have made my squad much less first off the bench.
WASHINGTON (#2) - utilized her freshness to good effect. Not physically strong enough for this level but held her own. Clearly a heady player.

The away kit is a black shirt and shorts with gold stripes on the shoulders, and sides of the shorts. The JFF and adidas logos are also gold. The jersey pays tribute to Jamaica's Rastafarian heritage with red, green, and gold stripes trimming the sleeves and collar.

The Association submits Uniform. That was how I knew it back in the day.
Away colours were defaulted to White. Black..all black was the default
and regular ref's outfit.

But I know things have changed in all the world but some make no sense logical or otherwise.
The Girlz away outfit today was predominnately black.. could it not be Total Black ?

Could their away kit not be all green or all yellow(gold) ?

Jamaica aimed to 'shock world' after France draw
Link Text

"We've had a really tough year. Personally and as a team we haven't prepared as much as I would have liked to for a World Cup. It shows you what this team is capable of."

Those words sum up the issue with leadership in general in Jamaica. Leaders in both public and private sectors are failing our people. When our people are properly equipped to succeed we can do amazing things. We see that when they migrate and blossom in their careers, even in hostile racial environments.

hubert 2023-07-23 17:08:18

Very true my Friend. It is so evident and the Pols especially very quick to wrap themselves with
the flag when the Sports Teams achieve. They all need to do a lot more for the athletes
in every way including better and more quality facilities and increased funding to
build domestic talent pool and development to establish a good foundation for the future.

Blackwood (LB) player of the match.

Blackwood was very good (she was almost my player of the game) but had two missed tackles. Drew Spence was simply outstanding. She has an engine that would not quit and her positioning to clog passing lanes is an underappreciated art that she is adept at.

Flawless is right although this Panama defense is a joke. Brazil has had about 90% of possession.
A quality side dis.

hubert 2023-07-24 12:10:10 

In reply to FanAttick

Having watched the first half, I tend to agree with you..they are efficient but not as
crisp or artistic as one expects of Brazilian teams plus they are not exploiting some obvious
deficiencies of he panama defence especially its right side.
They should have had a fedw more goals too.
But they will be much better against the Girlz especially as Shaw will be absent.

And yes, Jamaica should be able to open their defence as well.

Those Zambian ladies are the slowest Africans I have ever seen
plus the defense seems to think that all they have to do is run close to the attacker. No tackle.

hubert 2023-07-26 23:10:36 

In reply to Brerzerk

You noticed too...I was dismayed at their play and talk about slow ..their play was between slow and stop.
But it looks like they are pretty new to football and the coach was almost comatose too as he watched.
Let's hope they improve and develop but they have been the most awful team on show so far.

birdseye 2023-07-26 23:50:21 

In reply to Brerzerk Their coach looked rather lethargic himself, they probably got their vibes from him. Not impressive at all, and on some sports show, some commentator was talking about: lookout for the Zambians, they could surprise

2nd Argentine goal shouldn't have been. They fouled the Saffie girl and she was left writhing on the ground for about 2mins before ref stopped the play with Argies in possession. Then when play resumed it began with Saffies having to concede the ball.

JoeGrine 2023-07-29 13:22:31 

1) poorly refereed game so far
2) (even if she scores today) Jody Brown has regressed beyond recognition.
3) (even if shes scores today) Trudi Carter has regressed to the point where she should not even be at the stadium.
4) Drew Spence is a general.
5) Our goalie seems a bit unnerved.

These are the type of games where the dominant team (Jamaica) makes a mistake and the lesser team (Panama) slips one in for the win. Let's hope this doesn't happen today.

Congratulations Reggae Girls!

Team Grades:
GK : Spencer (8/10) - dealt with what came her way.
LB : Blackwood (3/10)- from hero (game 1) to goat (today). She played terribly.
CB : A. Swaby (8.5/10) - marshalled the team well and scored our first World Cup winner. Frankly, she should retain the captaincy.
CB ; C. Swaby (7/10) - played well in tandem with her sister.
RB : Cameron (8/10) was outstanding in defense and made a few attacking forays including a shot on goal.
DM : Samson (5.5/10) - her typical "I am here you just won't notice me" effort.
CM : Spence (9/10) - GENERAL Spence!
M : Primus (6/10) - neither outstanding nor underwhelming. Took one good shot on frame.
LW : Brown (5/10) - only got that grade for her efforts in the second half. She has regressed.
F : McKenna (5.5/10) - somewhat ineffective but did track back on defense.
RW : Carter (4.5/10) - looked clumsy for the most part.
Credit the coach for remaining in an attacking mood, I would have gone the other way to preserve the victory.
Matthews - she started last game and disappointed, same result here.
Washington - the teenager made it to the big stage, she is neither physically nor mentally ready for the field. Let her sit and soak in the moments.

That my friend is a GIVEN.and also my view.As a little 3rd world Team , anything marginal will be against us.
It is good that the Girlz got a victory, their first ever without Bunny.
Would be good if the two 3rd world coutries could off the upsets of the Year and beat both
France and Brazil allowing only one of them to go through.

Go for it Panama;;quite a few of you have some Jamaican heritage too.

CWWeekes 2023-07-29 17:36:59 

In reply to JoeGrine

Mr. Grine I am open to you further expanding on why per rules book that was not a hand ball. The player's arms were away from her body; raised like she was using her hands to prevent the ball from hitting her in the face. Were her arms in a so-called "natural position"? The game is now history but would hate for us to be at a disadvantage if it comes down to placings having to be decided by net goals difference and we lose out because of that non call.

there used to be a distinction up to a few years ago, if the ball touches hand now, the only question is the position of the hand at the time of contact.

no longer a sport, Dutch should've stopped scoring after 5.
Vietnam has won only 1 ball because the tackled only once.
Instead the either run beside the dribbler or run around like 'mad ants'
Then they lose or give away every ball they get.

No. They should have stopped scoring once/if they get a message saying USA isn't going to too many past Portugal. It was 5 at half time. There was still time for the USA to open the floodgates seeing as though they were getting countless looks on Portugal, who haven't done anything of note.

The GD is 8 vs 3, as it is. You're suggesting 6 vs 3. What if the USA had scored 4?

JoeGrine 2023-08-01 18:49:10 

In reply to analyst-kid

Brazil is not a well-coached team and they lack defensive discipline. They have a much better collection of individual talent than Jamaica does and that could make the difference.
Simpson and Spence in the middle will be key.

In reply to JoeGrine

The Girlz could pull it off too. As long as they don't allow Brazil to score first .
If they can do that they will frustrate this particular Brazil team which seem to be easily flustered
as they are not as cohesive as they are traditionally.

Their individual skills are there and with all to play for they will be coming at the Girlz with all they have.
But if the Girlz defence and midfield play stand firm and competitive ,they could create history.

I really expect the Girlz to step up as Shaw will make a difference.

I am up early as I don't wanna miss a minute of this one with history beckoning.

hubert 2023-08-02 06:30:11

Colombia looks great. I like them.Good choice as dark horse and they certainly could be more than that. Like the

Spencer - good so far
A. Swaby - stop being offensively aggressive, we need you in the defense.
Spence - GENERAL
Brown - love the defensive help
Simpson - rock solid
Matthews - why take that ridiculous yellow card?

hubert 2023-08-02 10:53:53 

ok...0-0 at the half..good for Girlz..but they have to lessen Brazil's possessions
in 2nd half especially in their own area..Girlz mid fielders have to step up big time
also as they are ceding to much room for the Brazilians...
Bunny gotta get more balls and be more active as she can draw away two defenders and give room
to her other attacking forward Spence.

We need a goal.

Brerzerk 2023-08-02 10:54:12 

We haven't tested their goalie even once. Find a way to win and keep 50/50 balls

JoeGrine 2023-08-02 10:57:28 

Girlz mid fielders have to step up big time
also as they are ceding to much room for the Brazilians...

The midfielders (Spence/Simpson) are doing a great job defensively. Offensively, we have to settle for counter attacks. We cannot open up the middle to Brazil, Primus is the only midfielder we can have concentrating primarily on offense.

Yes, we give up the early middle 3rd to Brazil when they attack, however, credit Jamaica, they are keeping shape in the final third of defense which is where Spence and Simpson comes in.

We have to settle for counter attacks to sneak a goal.

hubert 2023-08-02 10:57:57 

In reply to Brerzerk

That's what we want..Shaw has to get some more active and get
assist from midfield which is giving to much room for the Brazilians as
possession is vital in order to pressure the Marta's team.

hubert 2023-08-02 11:00:09 

In reply to JoeGrine
Hard o counter attack when offensive players are involved too much in defence..
But coach Lorne maybe thinking more of a draw.

JoeGrine 2023-08-02 11:02:20 

In reply to hubert

I agree with that, however, remember, if you don't score on my team, we cannot lose. You have to think defense first Hubert.

We all want goals, but first defend and counter.

hubert 2023-08-02 11:06:10 

In reply to JoeGrine

No disagreement here but we cannot afford to rely on defence all game...Shaw must be active and taking shots and so far. nada
Brazil has to have defending to do and they do not have to so far.

hubert 2023-08-02 11:10:18 

That';s a bit more like least Bunny looked more active and that one v One should have
borne more danger///

Congratulations Team Jamaica and Lorne Donaldson (and staff):

GK - Spencer (10) - clean sheet
RB - Wilthsire (8 ) - held off the waves of Brazilian attack which was primarily down her flank.
CB - A. Swaby (10.5) - player of the game. She has grown in the center back position.
CB - C. Swaby (9) - bravely defended despite ailments.
LB - Blackwood (7) - rebounded well from a disastrous game against Panama.
CDM - Simpson (8.5) - seldom seen but so effective.
CM - Spence (8.5) - GENERAL
AM - Primus (6) - not much attacks from her but helped team keep defensive shape.
RW - Matthews (5) - really a 4 but have to be generous today.
F - Shaw (6.5) - her presence kept the Brazil defense honest. Was poor with most of her touches.
LW - Brown (8 ) - was excellent in helping defensively.
Cameron (6.5) - excellent move by Donaldson to sub out Matthews for the defensive help Cameron provided.
Washington (5) - dumb move by Donaldson.

Massive congratulations Yardies.

Neutralizing Brazil in footie at any level by a little nation is a miracle. 3 mil v 250 mil.

Historically Jamaica's talent pool in sports (including the UB40's in multiple disciplines) and culture is awesome. Yard always punches above its weight. Small but tallawah!lol

You have to respect the defensive paradigm the JA women have brought so far. It's all well and good to want offense. For that you have to open up and the more seasoned teams will expose you and cut you up. Counterattack ball has to sharpen up. So far the philosophy holding. Fine tune and go forward! Excellent JA.

The team that is truly playing The Beautiful Game didn't make it.
Colombia actually played better than Morocco except the kid made that
mistake in the box re the penalty. Colombia would've given Yard a tough time.
Coach n team would've been focusing on defense but that match would've been
Colombia's midfield vs ours and their 3 would've run our five to the ground.

In reply to Brerzerk

Interesting question. As far as women yes,but it is likely that this happened many times with the men's game.
While the whites dominated cricket and rugby in the bad old days of apartheid, football was basically owned by
the Blacks. The whites did not seem to mind too much apparently as football was not treated the same as cricket or rugby
as FIFA did not operate the same as the ICC.

When the country changed from its racism based culture, blacks were the majority of the team if not totally, and a few even made
it to the rugby Springboks team too.

Could be an interesting thing to research tho. Was strange seeing only black women representing tonight.
And they played pretty good too considering they were up against a big time football team in the Netherlands.
Parity is coming to the International Women's game at a faster clip than the Men's.

USWNT Players Remain Largely Silent Again During National Anthem

That is the reality. USA League has got to get much better and tougher as the Europeans
are not slowing down but getting better and better with their solid foundation.
The Asian countries are getting there but they do not have a collective of very good league to compare
CONCACAF has a lot to do for the women's game to reach high level. Far more resources need
to grace CONCACAF in the Women's Game if progress need to be made and maintained.

What a class act this young lady! Brains, beauty,skill, enough brawns and more.
The Nigerians aren't scoring because they are used to an easier game. Lose the ball too often because of badly calculated passes then don't finish when chances are there. Vs weaker opponents those passes would reach the intended player rather than being intercepted.

Commentary immediately cut her adrift.

I dont hear them calling other ‘types’ of players double stupid.

But “stupid stupid Lauren” was an earful
“Possibly let herself and her country down; it’s left to be seen in the remaining minutes”
So knives were sharpened

She not out of the woods yet; she better hope they lift the cup and the best she can hope for is that “we did it without the overrated Lauren J”

Colombia vs Jamaica
Link Text

Key stats
This is Colombia's second time in the last 16 of the Women's World Cup, having also made the first knockout round on debut since 2015.
Jamaica are the first Caribbean nation to play in the knockout stages of a Fifa World Cup - male or female - since Cuba in 1938.
The Reggae Girlz are only the third side from the Concacaf region to reach the Women's World Cup knockouts, after USA and Canada.
These two sides are the last remaining representatives from their respective federations (Colombia from Conmebol, Jamaica from Concacaf) at this World Cup.
Jamaica did not concede in any of their three group games. In 2019, making their Women's World Cup debut, they conceded 12 goals in three matches.

GK : Spencer (8 ) - my Jamaican player of the tourney. Hoping Leah Brooks can soak up some knowledge for the future.
LB : Blackwood (4) - has fallen off to her mean since Game 1.
CB : A. Swaby (7) - very steady while being aggressive.
CB : C. Swaby (8.5) - silently growing into a world class center back. Vies with Spencer for our player of the tourney.
RB : Wiltshire (5) - had her hands full with Caicedo and actually held her own.
LM : Carter (3) - .....I will be nice so just notice her grade.
CM : Spence (4.5) - her worse game of the tourney.
CM : Simpson (5) - her usual steady but unspectacular self.
RM : Brown (6) - for me her best game but should have been more aggressive with that goalmouth 1/2 chance.
F : Shaw (6.5) - did not live up to her billing and was a tad unselfish late in the game.
F : van Zanten (6.5) - surprised she was subbed out. She was good defensively and showed some offensive nous.

CM : Primus (5) - clogged the middle but wayward in her passes.
RM : Cameron (7) - should have replaced Carter early in the first half.
McNamara/Simmonds/Matthews - not on long enough for consideration.

Coach - Donaldson and his staff should be retained. He needs to drop his football infatuation with Washington. She is a talent but not ready.
Captaincy - Shaw doesn't have the temperament or the nuances to be captain. Outfit A. Swaby or Spencer with the captain's armband. Shaw spent more time gesticulating negatively to her teammates yet visibly missing when it was time to protest her teammate's yellow cards.
Colombia - decent team but they are so dramatic I thought I was watching men's football.

In reply to Halliwell

Can't recall her taking a shot either..or making a good attempt even from
distance. When the occasion is big you expect big players to show up big.

She did not; expected much more from her but the team's defending stance
did not created much by way of attacks when it could have mattered.

If they were more inclined to offensive plays then Shaw could have been as a
decoy with two or three defenders on her sometimes and give opportunity to other
offensive players to do something.
But the midfield players were more centered on strengthening the defence .
Worked for a while but when goals are needed in KO stage, the midfield has to assert
itself in goal getting with good passes.
The Girlz will be much better going forward. They know now what they have to do
but the support on every level must be forthcoming and commitment to the cause
fortified by the JFF and all stakeholders.

The Girl have made huge leap and gain International attention compared to four years ago.

True, but that also created a log jam in the goal area which limited our ability to score goals…. She was not more than mediocre in the series, she used her chest to trap balls and couldn’t control the ball then, I don’t know, there was too much emphasis on her and she did not deliver a thing.

camos 2023-08-08 14:16:54 

In reply to birdseyeI don’t know, there was too much emphasis on her and she did not deliver a thing.

Coach needed to make the adjustment, if she draws 3 defenders the other forwards should do the scoring. With the exception of one game Brown seems much too slow on the left.

Your utterances as a captain carries weight. Mr. Andre Blake's -we dont want foreigners coming in when we near qualify, we have enough already - among other utterances are divisive and disgusting.

In a laughable act of hypocrisy, he recently became a US Citizen.

Just for the record, he is, for my money, the best goalkeeper we ever had.

You are 100% correct; he needed to move her further away from goal to open up some space around the goal. She also wasn’t playing with any joy --- Linda Caicedo, that’s a young player with talent who also play with a lot of joy and enjoyment, whether she makes a good play or loses the ball. Bunny played like she expected differential treatment.. it’s the world cup, but go out there and enjoy it, it may be once in a lifetime opportunity, show that you are enjoying it, express yourself, win, lose or draw

In the history of Jamaican football, there are only two net-minders who have tended goal at the highest level, namely, Barrett and Lawrence.

It is the latter who I think is grossly underrated and so I move him up one notch. What I saw of Miller, he was quite steady but I cannot displace anyone above him to put him there.

I saw Miller drag a garbage team (Syrianska FC) from D2 in Sweden into the top flight there. Also saw him put in some spectacular performances for Jamaica. Well, I guess just outside the top 5 may be fair.

One of the most encouraging legacies of this historic run in this FIFA World Cup is that no one questioned the loyalty, commitment and "Jamaicanness" of the players despite the vast majority being born and raised in the Diaspora. This a good sign of the ideal of a Jamaica without borders where the Diaspora is seen as an equal and indispensable part of the country.

New Skippy Lloyd needed a steady-headed and experienced Murray as VC. To not take Dessie as reserve was almost criminal.
What happened is that it coincided with WICB's unofficial thrust to get 'Islanders' into the team so Findlay got the nod.
The official argument was Findlay was a much better keeper and Lewis was only used at home as a stop-gap opener. To hell
with the fact he made the team as a #7!!!

One of the most encouraging legacies of this historic run in this FIFA World Cup is that no one questioned the loyalty, commitment and "Jamaicanness" of the players despite the vast majority being born and raised in the Diaspora. This a good sign of the ideal of a Jamaica without borders where the Diaspora is seen as an equal and indispensable part of the country.

I spoke on this earlier, the reason it is not being questioned has to do with one thing and it is absolutely not the historic run. Note the success did not come until the tourney started so it could not be the historic run which kept the detractors quiet as we did not anticipate this outcome.

Most of the cry about "English rejects" come from those in Jamaica who are affiliated with men's clubs. The more diaspora players on the team, the less likelihood of a local player being seen and getting sold off to a foreign team to make dollars from transfer fees. Thís is not a major factor in women's soccer, as of now. The local clubs and their spokespersons want to use the men's program as a showcase of local talent to sell, not to qualify for tourneys. If i can get local player from Club Y on the team and he gets seen then my club gets paid and I can "eat a food", if we qualify so be it. There has to be a cultural shift from using the national team to market players to bringing in marketing experts into the local clubs to create revenue streams and let the national team serve national interest.

If Rebecca Spencer and Drew Spence were men they would be labeled "English rejects", as is, they are treasured parts of a historic run.

Carvel Stewart of Harbour View in his pre-election speech has made it quite clear he wants a "Jamaican " team that locals can enjoy! Need I say more.

By the way every time I hear or see someone blaming Blackwood for the loss to Colombia i "bringle" The attack began on a throw not intercepted mind you but actually thrown to an opponent.

The failure to intercept a throw-in was not as crucial as the failure by Blackwood to properly account for the player she was expected to mark. To compound matters, she totally misjudged the flight of the ball. It was Blackwood's fault.

No, not really that. They were here 4 years ago and got beaten every single game, and most of the team were foreign born as well. The result, not much was said. They never reached that far up until that point, or even looked close to it with just a bunch of local players.

But glad to see this is pretty much the depth of your involvement here. wink

Not really. See above.

In reply to JoeGrine

The fact is players with quality do not need the national team to gain contracts overseas. Renaldo Cephas, Leon Bailey and Dujuan Richards are a few examples.

The JPL matches have good coverage, players can be assessed without being seen internationally. What the JFF needs to do is use the technology that allows rating sites such as Sofascore to generate data on players. The JPL is a higher league than the Macedonia league yet our players are leaving the JPL to go there as their performance data is captured.

Netherlands v Spain in the first QF in about one hour.
Have admired Dutch football since he days of Johan Cruyff and the 'Total Football'
pattern they paraded in the 1974 World Cup.
The women have not reached that level but have shown themselves to be one of the top teams
in this WC and have made themselves heavy favourites to get to the final.

However I have a nagging feeling that Spain will upset them in the QF.
Hope the game lives up to high expectations.

I also like Japan over Sweden
Colombia over England and
France over Australia.

Would love to see Colombia and Japan final

Yes it could be..they deserve this win as their domination of the first half was
unbelievable..Japan did come back and could have evened the score but they were
reduced to mediocre in the first 45.
That missed spot kick made a big difference to the outcome.
Still a good game and the Swedes look good.
So the two teams that played the most beautiful soccer, Netherlands and Japan are out.
Such is the sport and I am backing your dark horse Colombia to take out the Brits .
Would make my day if they get to the semis..
Would not like to see an all European semis

It shows how you have to invest at the grass roots

The present government only cares for one sport, that is horse racing. The effort to improve national sports will have to be undertaken by professional clubs and academies. Similar to what MVP Track Club and Racers Track Club did for Track and Field. They moved Jamaica from minor medals to gold medal winners.

She bowed to the British press to not start James, her best player.

Now ain’t that the gospel truth
But I glad, because if she started might have been a different outcome

Commiserations to the Lesbianesses! There's a new English WSL TV contract coming up and this must have knocked off a few tens of millions of pounds.
