The funds raised will assist Nicole in her preparation leading up to Jamaica’s historic debut at the FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
Nicole was one the heroes of the match against Panama that led to Jamaica’s qualification to the World Cup. She was sent in to replace goalkeeper Sydney Schneider in the 120th minute of the match. The game ended tied 2-2 during regulation/extra time and went to penalties. Nicole saved two penalty shots, which ensured the Reggae Girlz victory and their historic qualification to the FIFA Women’s World Cup competition finals 2019. The FIFA Women’s World Cup tournament in France will begin on 7 June 2019 and the final will be played on 7 July 2019.
Following her visit to NY, Nicole will then depart for South Africa for the Reggae Girlz training camp, April 1-9, where they will play the South African national team. Nicole then departs for Ireland where she will play for Sion Swifts FC, before leaving for Jamaica on May 15 where the Reggae Girlz will play their final match in Kingston versus Panama on May 19, before departing for the World Cup.
