#ReggaeGirlz go up to go ‘down under’, World Cup bound, again-July 12, 2022

In a winner-take-all game against Haiti, Jamaica’s women’s team won 4-0 to seal a spot in Australia and New Zealand in 2023. That’s consecutive qualifications. They and our compatriots should be immensely proud.

The match was not without scarces as Haiti hit a post at 0-0, and came close several times while trailing 1-0.

USA topped the group, with 3 wins and maximum points, scoring 9, conceding 0. Jamaica scored 5, conceded 5 (all from USA 😰), ending with 2 wins and a loss.

The other 2 CONCACAF slots were also decided, with Canada beating Costa Rica 2-0, but both qualify.

Canada got maximum points, with same goals scored and goal difference as USA; these two teams look favourites to make the final. But, nothing is certain.

These 4 teams will play CONCACAF semifinals on July 14, and final and 3rd place matches on July 18.

Haiti will have an intercontinental playoff in February 2023 for a vacant World Cup slot:
