The Jamaican Women’s National Team finished third at the 2018 Concacaf Women’s Championship to clinch a spot at France 2019.

It could not have come in more dramatic circumstances.

Facing Panama in the Third-Place Match, the Reggae Girls went toe-to-toe with the Canaleras and after 90 minutes was licked in a 1-1 draw.

The two sides would then exchange goals in extra time, meaning Concacaf’s third and final automatic berth for France 2019 would be decided in a penalty shootout.

From the spot, Jamaica stood tall and emerged with a 4-2 victory.

Not only was this Jamaica’s first ever Women’s World Cup qualification, but also the first time that a Caribbean nation has reached a FIFA Women’s World Cup.

For that reason, Jamaica’s landmark achievement is fully deserving of the 2018 Concacaf Most Outstanding Award.
