The Reggae Girlz, Made history

Jamaica's women's team, the Reggae Girlz, continues to make history at the 2023 World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand after advancing to the round of 16 with a 0-0 draw with Brazil.

After conceding 12 goals in its Women’s World Cup debut in 1999, Jamaica shut out France, Panama and Jamaica in consecutive games to book an improbable place in the tournament's knockout stage.

On the other hand, for Brazil, it is the first time since 1995 that the team and her big star, Marta in her last World Cup, has failed to advance out of the group stage.

Jamaica led by the team star captain, Khadija Shaw Of Manchester City, was also enjoyed by the goalkeeper, Rebecca Spencer of Tottenham, who was named player of the match. Jamaica advances to play the winner of Group H next week in Adelaide, Australia.

With their history in the making, many celebrities Including Jamaican Sprint Legend, Usain Bolt and Prime Minister Andrew Holness congratulated the team enthusiastically on their Twitter account.
