Group A Opponents
Jamaica has been drawn into Group A, alongside the United States, Canada, and Panama. This is a tough group, with the United States and Canada both being perennial contenders at the youth level. Panama will also be a tough opponent, having finished runners-up in the 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games.
What Jamaica Will Need to Do
Jamaica will need to be at their best to advance from this tough group. They will likely need to take points off of both Panama and one of the North American powerhouses to advance to the knockout stage. To do so, they will need to rely on their strong defense and look to capitalize on any scoring opportunities that come their way.

With a strong squad and notable players like Shaniel Buckley, Jamaica has the potential to surprise some of their opponents in Group A. While it won’t be easy, Jamaica will be looking to make history and earn a spot in next year’s FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
