The Reggae Girlz Continue Fairytale Run at World Cup With 0-0 Draw vs. Brazil

The Reggae Girlz playing in the biggest game in Jamaica’s women’s football history only needed a point to advance in the competition. The Jamaican World Cup campaign has been nothing short of a historical experience, and facing off with Brazil was no different.

Having not conceded a goal in the entire tournament so far Jamaica showed their defensive capabilities as Brazil looked dangerous and the team that looked most likely to score.

Brazil enjoyed much success down the left wing by passing through Jamaica’s strong defence a few times and whipping up some dangerous chances. However, the Reggae Girlz were able to finish the first half 0-0.

Attacking wise the Reggae Girlz offered next to nothing which was expected as they only needed a draw to advance. Jamaica’s game plan was simple, focus on keeping out the Brazilian team and trying to get a clinical pass through to Bunny Shaw for her to work her magic.


The second half was much the same with Jamaica displaying their defensive abilities, and Brazil was unable to generate clear-cut opportunities. Jamaica showed that their two clean sheets in two games were no fluke shutting out one of the competition’s favourites.

In spite of the few dangerous moments created by the South American women, the Reggae Girlz held on to the draw and advanced to the next round securing a third clean sheet. Their story has been one of courage and resilience, and they will be looking to continue their success in the next round.

Jamaica wrote their name in the history book following this result becoming the first-ever Jamaican team to advance out of a World Cup group stage.
