Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz were pushed back 1-0 against a clinical South Korean team in a friendly international at the Hwaseong Stadium on Saturday.
After the 13th minute of the start of the game, an early goal by Choe Yu-ri was all the South Korean ladies needed to halt any ambition harbored by the young Jamaicans.
The Reggae Girlz made a few changes to the starting line-up ahead of the match, including the return of Sydney Schneider who was the team’s custodian at the last FIFA World Cup, and a debut for Siobhan Marie Wilson.
Head coach of the unit Lorne Donaldson believes that barring a bit of inefficiency the team put in a creditable performance.
“Playing with this style that we are not accustomed to, I think the first half we were very tentative, and we actually gave up a goal we shouldn’t have,” Lorne said after the match.
“In the second half, it was much better. We might have scored but that’s football. We’ll make some adjustments the players who didn’t play in this game will play in the next game because we still have to evaluate,” he added.
“Winning is good but sometimes you just have to evaluate, look and see what you have and that’s what we are here for.”
