Jamaica booked their passage to the final round of CONCACAF
qualifying for Beijing 2008 with a 3-0 aggregate win over
favourites Cuba, keeping alive a stunning 2007 qualifying record.
The result was most impressive for the Reggae Girlz considering they were forced to play both legs in hostile territory in Havana.
The islanders got off on the right foot last Thursday with a 1-0 win over their stunned hosts, and then went on to repeat the dose at the weekend by a score of 2-0.
Kanesha Reid opened the scoring for the Jamaicans on Sunday after 30 minutes before Christina Murray made sure in the 86th minute when she strolled in to take advantage of a stretched Cuban rearguard.
The result sees the island ladies on the crest of an impressive wave. Having not conceded a goal in 450 minutes of qualifying football, they have managed to outscore their various opponents 27-0 in these preliminary rounds.
Now, though, the Jamaicans will face some far sterner tests. They join powers USA, Canada, Mexico and fellow hopefuls Costa Rica and Trinidad & Tobago in the six-team final round of qualifying for Beijing 2008, which will take place in Chihuahua, Mexico from 2 to 12 April.
