Jamaica 0-1 Colombia Ends Reggae Girlz’ Impressive World Cup Run

Jamaica battled with the surprise favourite in the tournament, Colombia, for a place in the quarter-finals, who have been playing attractive attacking football since the start of the Women’s World Cup before they were stunned by Morroco in their last group game.

The Reggae Girlz again showed their defensive prowess by nullifying the few attacks created by the South American women in the first half.

As expected, this encounter was a close affair with no clear-cut chances created by either team in the first half. Shaw had limited touches in Colombia’s penalty area, and the Jamaican captain was forced to feed off scraps.

The first half ended 0-0.

The start of the second half saw Colombia take control of the game, Colombia. Guzman executed a fantastic switch of play from the left side to the right, lofting her pass over Blackwood’s head and delivering it to Usme inside the box.

Usme took a touch before elegantly curling her shot across the goal and into the corner.

Colombia’s goal put an end to Jamaica’s three-match run without conceding a goal. It was a challenge for the Reggae Girlz to generate any significant opportunities for their captain in their attempt to score.

As the second half neared the 90-minute mark, Jamaica stepped up their intensity. During this time, Colombia fans were on the edge of their seats due to a few set pieces by Jamaica. At one point, Carter’s header skimmed off the post, causing a moment of panic for Colombia.

That was the closest Jamaica would come to scoring as they lost 1-0 to Colombia to put an end to their historic run at the Women’s World Cup.

In a post-match interview, Shaw spoke on the result and going forward, watch below.
