Coach of the Reggae Girlz, Hue Menzies, welcome the news that the team moved up 11-places to 53 on the latest FIFA women rankings.

The rise in the rankings comes a few weeks after the Jamaican senior women finished third in the CONCACAF Championships in October, historically qualifying for the 2019 FIFA World Cup in France.

Menzies says the climb could have been greater.
