Reggae girl Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw, who is grabbing headlines internationally, especially in England and her native country Jamaica is currently having yet another unbelievable season this time in the WSL, as the 26-year-old has already racked up 21 goals in just only 20 games for Manchester City ladies scoring four of those goals along with a brilliant assist in City’s most recent match against Bristol City.
Shaw’s outstanding performances in the current 2022-2023 season have once again brought back the debate amongst Jamaican fans about who is truly the goat of Jamaican football. The debate first began when Shaw became Jamaica’s top international goal scorer by surpassing the late Reggae Boy Luton Shelton’s record of being the country’s top goal scorer.
Considering the fact that Shaw has accrued a remarkable 55 goals in just over 38 competitive matches for the Jamaican national team, it is no wonder that the debate is in Shaw’s favour.
However, on the other side of the argument, argued by popular radio and television personality Oral Tracey who took to his Youtube channel to make the case that it is inaccurate to compare female footballers with male footballers, claiming that comparing sports athletes across gender is totally unfair and not logical to make such comparisons.
In addition, the self-titled Maverick has also suggested that it’s more reasonable for sports fans to keep the debate gender-based, which means labelling Bunny Shaw as the best Jamaican female footballer rather than labelling her the best Jamaican footballer.

Despite television personality\ journalist Oral Tracy’s compelling case, there is no doubt the debate over Jamaica’s football goat will be continued for years to come, given Shaw’s current sparkling form.
