The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) has named 22 of it's final squad of 23 for the FIFA Women's World Cup being staged in France next month.

The list was posted on the Reggae Girlz Foundation's Instagram page this morning.

It reads:

Sydney Schneider 
Nicole McClure 
Allyson Swaby
Ashleigh Shim
Chinyelu Asher 
Chanel Hudson-Marks
Khadija Shaw
Deneisha Blackwood 
Dominique Bond-Flasza
Lauren Silver 
Marlo Sweatman

Konya Plummer (captain) 
Toriana Patterson 
Trudi Carter 
Yazmeen Jamieson 
Chantel Swaby 
Kayla McCoy
Cheyna Matthews
Tiffany Cameron

It is understood that with the deadline for the submission of the final list being tomorrow, head coach, Hue Menzies, is still waiting for FIFA clearance for West Ham United ladies defender Vyan Sampson.

However, if unsuccessful in his bid, Menzies could opt instead for veteran striker Shakira Duncan.

The FIFA Women's World Cup begins on June 7 and ends on July 7, with the Reggae Girlz getting their campaign started against Brazil on June 9 in Grenoble.
