Jamaica head coach of the U17 Reggae Girlz, Lorne Donaldson, says he’s pleased with the strong interest among players in the Diaspora to play soccer for Jamaica.
Eleven overseas players from the U.S. and Canada completed in three-day camp yesterday, in preparation for their game against Grenada in March. The team next heads to Tampa, Florida, to continue training.
Jamaica was drawn in a challenging Group B alongside Costa Rica, Mexico and the USA.
Group A comprises hosts Grenada, Guatemala, Canada, and Haiti.
The two finalists and the third-placed team will qualify for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Jordan in September.
The camp is being conducted under the direction of technical director for the women’s programme, Hue Menzies, Donaldson, and Assistant Coach Xavier Gilbert.
