The Reggae Girlz: How Bob Marley‘s daughter helped Jamaica reach the Women’s World Cup | ESPN FC

Alexis Nunes and ESPN bring the story of how Cedella Marley, Bob Marley’s eldest daughter, rescued the Jamaica Women’s football team from financial turmoil and put them on the path towards qualifying for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France. The Reggae Girlz, thanks to their famous benefactor and an influx of talent from the Jamaican diaspora, made history in 2018 by becoming the first ever Caribbean nation to qualify for the tournament.

The World Cup tournament will start on 7 June, with hosts France playing South Korea.

Jamaica will play its first match on 9 May, against Brazil.

The Jamaican national team is ranked at #53 by FIFA. So, it would surprise many people if they would go far in France against all other teams ranked higher by FIFA. Still, as they say, ‘in football, the ball is round’, and can go anywhere. There have been many surprises in football before.
