Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Karen Madden

With only three changes from the recent World Cup squad, Reggae Girlz head coach Lorne Donaldson has largely stuck with the same players for the upcoming Olympic qualifiers against Canada.

Forward Olufolasade Adamolekun and defender Sashana Campbell who was an alternate for the Girlz at the recent FIFA showpiece in Australia and New Zealand, are included in a 22-member squad announced via a press release late Wednesday night by the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF).

Midfielders Payton McNamara, Havana Saloun and Kiki Van Zanten  who were members of the squad at the World Cup, have not been included.

The squad will assemble in Jamaica on September 19. The Reggae Girlz will battle Canada on September 22 at the National Stadium and at the BMO Field in Toronto on September 26.

The winner of the tie will represent CONCACAF at the Paris 2024 Olympics, alongside the United States.

The winner will also automatically qualify for the inaugural CONCACAF Women's Gold Cup which will take place in the United States between February 17 and March 10, 2024. The loser will drop into a Gold Cup qualifying group which includes Panama and Guatemala.
