Reggae Girlz Captain Shaw Says Learning Experience From Two Match Tour Loss

Jamaica Reggae Girlz captain Khadijah Shaw has labeled the just concluded two-match tour of South Korea as a valuable learning experience, despite the team losing both matches.

Following a 1-0 loss to their Asian counterparts on Saturday, the team closed out the tour with a 2-0 defeat on Wednesday.  Despite the results, the tour that was earmarked as an opportunity to evaluate players and team tactics was, in Shaw’s estimation, a huge success.

According to press reports, Shaw said, “From the beginning the coach had said he wanted to use this opportunity to see other players, to find an identity and style of play, especially now that we have time before the World Cup,” Shaw said.

“So just coming here, playing against a different style, playing against a team that loves the ball helped us to know that sometimes we are going to suffer in different games and that gives us an idea of how we can approach the game,” she added.

The Reggae Girlz are expected to take part in further camps during the October and November window.
