Panama vs Jamaica match preview

Two near-neighbours from the CONCACAF region go head-to-head in this crucial World Cup clash in Perth.

Jamaica got their campaign up-and-running on Sunday night, taking on European juggernauts France in Sydney.

Given that at their only World Cup to date, the Reggae Girlz lost all three matches, most expected that trend to continue.

In contrast, Lorne Donaldson’s team were excellent at the weekend, keeping France at arms length and holding out for an historic goalless draw.

This point was bitter sweet though because, in stoppage time, super star striker Khadija Shaw was sent off, picking up a second yellow card, meaning she’ll miss this one through suspension.

Nevertheless, this did little to quell the Jamaica joy at picking up this first World Cup point, so can they now claim a maiden World Cup win?

Panama meanwhile are one of the eight debutants at this competition and they suffered a serious reality check in their opener on Monday.

Las Canaleras were demolished 4-0 by Brazil in Adelaide, with the Seleção racking up an xG figure of 4.3 to Panama’s 0.2.

This tournament was always going to be a learning expirence for Ignacio Quintana’s team, so he’ll be hoping lessons have been learnt very fast.

With France and Brazil also in Group F, neither of these two were, or still are, expected to reach the round of 16, with both targeting this match as their best chance of claiming a victory.

These pair last met in a competitive fixture in October 2018, with Jamaica winning a penalty shootout in Dallas, following a 2-2 draw, a result that saw the Reggae Girlz qualify for their maiden World Cup the following year.

Will either be celebrating three points at a World Cup for the very first time at Perth Rectangular Stadium?

Panama team news

Ignacio Quintana deployed a rather defensive 5-4-1 on Monday, which is fair enough given the calibre of opposition, but may switch to a back four for this more evenly-matched contest.

This would be good news for 23 year old American-born striker Riley Tanner, who could come into attack, partnering Karla Riley.

Marta Cox though is this team’s star, hoping to add to her 15 international goals.

Predicted XI (4-4-2): Bailey; Castillo, Baltrip-Reyes, Vargas, Jaén; González, Quintero, Mills, Cox; Tanner, Riley.

Jamaica teams news

As mentioned, Bunny Shaw was sent off in the dying embers of that historic draw with France, meaning the Manchester City striker will serve her one-match ban here.

It’s never nice to call any side a clichéd ‘one player team’, but if that’s applicable to anyone at this tournament, it is this Jamaican side and Bunny Shaw.

Cheyna Matthews will lead the line in her absence with Havana Solaun, the only Jamaican women to score a World Cup goal, so far, coming into midfield.

Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Spencer; C Swaby, A Swaby, Sampson, Wiltshire; Solaun, Spence, Blackwood, Primus, Brown; Matthews.
