Reaching the final stage of the women’s world championship was a great joy for Jamaica, which was not spoiled by great football victories. But national federation officials clearly did not share this success. The organization is already in a deep debt hole, as repeatedly stated by those who are at least somehow familiar with the situation, and here they still had to send a group of more than thirty people to the other side of the world – Australia and New Zealand, moreover, with unclear prospects. The prize money for participating in the group round, even if it was not to pay the players and coaches a penny, would hardly have solved the problems that had arisen for a long time. Therefore, Jamaican soccer officials had a lot to think about. And in the end, in fact, they refrained from solving the problem. Help came suddenly and from where it was not expected.


The mother of one of the soccer players, Habana Solaun, took up the matter and decided to help fulfill the dream of her daughter and her friends. On one of the crowdfunding sites, she launched a fundraiser to organize the team’s trip to the World Cup. When the amount received from Internet users reached 50 thousand dollars, it became clear that the goal was close. Those who couldn’t help but message their friends. And in the end, exactly at the moment when it was necessary to make a final decision, the necessary funds were received.

This way of solving the problem is not new to poor Jamaica. At one point, funds were also raised to send bobsleds to the Olympics. But her performance at the end was better suited to the old slogan “The main thing is not to win, but to participate.” Back then, they brought nothing but exoticism to the bobsleigh tournament.

The players decided to justify their trust and care in full. During the entire group stage, they scored only one goal, but did not concede even once. And in the decisive game to reach the playoffs, the Brazilians themselves were arrested, who finally go home.

What a flurry of criticism awaits South American women in their homeland – one can only imagine and at the same time sympathize with the girls. The fantastic trajectory of the Jamaican team will continue with the round of 16 match, where the Colombians can become their rivals with many odds. So maybe this is not the end of the Caribbean story of motherly love, the help of friends and the miracles that sometimes happen in soccer.
