Reggae Girlz captain Konya Plummer says she is looking forward most to playing against Brazil in the FIFA Women’s World Cup next year.

 Reggae Girl Nicole McClure said it was a surreal moment when Jamaica qualified for the 2019 World Cup in France.

Two of the women responsible for getting Jamaica’s Reggae Girlz to a historic World Cup berth, are calling out equipment brands for not paying enough attention to the sex of athletes.

According to defender Allyson Swaby, men’s gear can, at times, be comfortable.

"It can definitely be frustrating wearing men's-fit clothing," she said. "Likewise, it can be frustrating wearing 'women's' gear that is built for the average shaped women but not an athlete. No one wants to be constantly adjusting their attire during training or competition."

Research showed that Claire Rafferty, an English footballer, who suffered through cruciate ligament injuries, could have eased those troubles had her footwear contoured to her feet.

According to goalkeeper Chris-Ann Chambers, she has become accustomed to wearing ill-fitting gear because there are no real options.

"It would be great if there was equipment specifically made for us because our bodies are shaped differently, and weight distribution is different," said Chambers.

"Having equipment that's specifically made for females definitely improves the quality of play because you feel more comfortable playing,” she added.

According to the goalkeeper, if there are gears made for women, she doesn’t know about it and that poses a million problems.

"Most of the gear that we get are from the men's line. There's none specifically made for females, that I know of, anyway,” she said.

“They may just change the name on it to say Reggae Girlz, but the ones I know are made for men. For instance, a lot of men's calves are bigger, so for us, we have to be finding ways and means to keep our shin guards in place. They are sometimes a lot bigger, so if you want shin guards for us, you'd probably have to go down to children's sizes. My gloves don't always fit perfectly because they're men sizes. A lot of times we can't find half sizes, especially in Jamaica."

Barbados may not be able to qualify for the CONCACAF Nations League after the governing body overturned a 2-2 draw with Guyana over the use of two ineligible players.

The two persons involved, England-based Hallam Hope and Krystian Pearce, made their international debuts in the fixture but CONCACAF fielded a protest from Guyana’s football authorities which changed the landscape of Nations League qualifying for Barbados.

Hope’s influence on the game was significant, the English-based player, scoring a second half brace putting Barbados ahead after a Trayon Bobb goal had them trailing.

“The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf) today announced its Disciplinary Committee has decided to sanction the Barbados Football Association, by declaring as a forfeit the Concacaf Nations League Qualifying match played against Guyana, on September 6, 2018,” a Concacaf statement said.

“After due examination of the evidence, the committee determined that the Barbados Football Association infringed the applicable articles of the tournament regulations and the regulations governing the application of the Fifa statutes in relation to the eligibility of players to play for representative teams by fielding ineligible players Hallam Hope and Krystian Pearce.

Against El Salvador on October 13, Hope and Pearce also featured, but the result never mattered since Barbados lost 3-0.

The CONCACAF decision means Barbados now have three points and lie 23rd in the 34-team competition. With Nicaragua their only remaining fixture next March, Barbados have many problems.
