Jamaica are in group F and they will have be at their best to best heavyweights like Brazil and France.
Michael Ricketts, president of the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF), and Lorne Donaldson, head coach of the national senior women team were present during the draw. Price revealed that they have higher expectations and objectives that the team needs to accomplish despite Jamaica losing a historic campaign in France in the year 2019.
According to Edwards, Jamaica should work on its training and preparations in order to perform better than their last campaign three years ago. This he claims was the reason the Jamaicans were knocked out at the early stages of the tournament.
