Jamaica’s female footballers will seek to build on the recent positive performance at the CONCACAF Under 17 level when they participate in the World Cup qualifying CONCACAF Under 20 Women’s Championship in January.

 

 The U17 Female team advanced to the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Championships held in Montego Bay between October 30 and November 9, 2013. This achievement which included a draw against Mexico for the first time  also resulted in Jamaica topping a group at the CONCACAF stage again for the first time. Jamaica’s Felecia Davidson was nominated for the CONCACAF “Goal of the Year” for the goal she scored in the 45th minute against Mexico on November 3, 2013.

 

It is against this background and with four players from the Under 17’s expected to be in the Under 20 squad, that a camp has been called again to prepare for the January tournament. Amongst the four players is the Under 17 captain Khadija Shaw. 

 

Shaw is one of four nominees in the RJR Sports Foundation  People’s Choice Award for the goal she scored against Trinidad and Tobago in the CFU Under 20 Championship game. As a result of this stunning goal Jamaica won the Championship. 

 

For the CONCACAF Under 20 Championship, Jamaica is drawn in Group A  alongside Costa Rica, Guatemala and the USA. Group B consists of host Cayman Islands, Mexico, Trinidad and Tobago and Honduras. Three countries will qualify for the World Cup to be held in Canada in August.
