The players and coaching staff of the Reggae Girlz are calling on the Jamaica Football Federation, JFF, to ensure the team is able to train and play together before they enter the final phase of qualifying for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The final knockout qualification round will kick off next February.
Jamaica will face World Cup winners the United States, Canada and Mexico in the next round.
All three are ranked in the top 30 in the world.
Jamaica is ranked number 51.
Jamaica’s leading goal scorer, Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw, says it will be difficult to compete against those teams if the Reggae Girlz don’t meet again before the qualifiers.
