Reggae Girlz Trashed Grenada 6-1 in Concacaf World Cup Qualifying

Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz defeated Grenada 6-1 in their second game of the Concacaf Women’s World Cup qualifying first round at the Kirani James Athletic Stadium on Sunday.

Jody Brown and Manchester City striker Khadija Shaw both had braces while Tiffany Cameron and Alika Keene added strikes as Jamaica remained perfect in their first two games of Group C. Roneisha Frank scored Grenada’s lone goal.

Jamaica and the Dominican Republic are tied on six points out of six in the window but the Dominican Republic leads the group with a superior goal difference (plus 13) compared to the Reggae Girlz’s plus nine. The Dominican Republic topped the Cayman Islands 4-0 on Saturday.

Jamaica will next play the Cayman Islands on April 9 before closing out the round against the Dominican Republic on April 12. Only the top finisher in each of the six groups will advance to the next stage of the qualifier –  the Concacaf Women’s Championship.

Eight teams will compete in the Concacaf Women’s Championship, with the top four finishers in the tournament qualifying for the World Cup co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand next year.

The United States and Canada, as the two highest-ranked teams in the confederation, have automatic berths in the Women’s Championship field.

The Women’s Championship will be played July 4-18 at University Stadium and BBVA Stadium in Monterrey.

The United States is the defending World Cup champion.
