Jamaica Makes Women's World Cup

Jamaica’s women’s national team will be going to the World Cup for the first time in the team’s history after beating Panama on penalties in the third-place game at the CONCACAF qualifying tournament.

With this win, the team also becomes the first Caribbean nation ever to qualify for the Women’s World Cup.

Before the the end of extra time, Jamaica made the bold choice to substitute their 19-year-old starting goalkeeper, Sydney Schneider, for the much more experienced Nicole McClure.
