Following the Reggae Girlz’ exit from the FIFA Women’s World Cup, Khadija Shaw is disappointed, but her head remains high, given the team’s history-making campaign in the competition.
The Reggae Girlz’ 0-1 defeat to Colombia in the round of 16 meant an end to Jamaica’s 2023 World Cup dreams. But the national team had already sealed their names in the history books as the first Caribbean female team to qualify for the knockout stage in the competition.
Reflecting on her team’s time in the World Cup, Shaw took to Instagram on Wednesday, sharing photos of the Girlz’ victorious moments from their triumph over Brazil as well as their loss to Colombia. Highlighting the Reggae Girlz’ massive accomplishment, the 26-year-old noted in the post’s caption that merely dreaming of doing something was one thing, but creating history was something vastly different.
Shaw expressed that she was disappointed with how her team’s time at the football competition concluded. But assured of the fact that they had done their best to represent Jamaica, Shaw said they were leaving with their heads held high.
The Manchester City forward went on to thank the fans from around the world who shared their dream and supported them.
