Reggae Girl Tierney Wiltshire named on FIFA Women’s World Cup team of the group
Reggae Girl Tierney Wiltshire has been named on the FIFA Women’s World Cup team of the group stage of the ongoing FIFA World cup tournament in Australia and New Zealand
Despite striker and captain Khadijah Bunny Shaw being the poster girl of the reggae girls team , Wiltshire and the Jamaican defensive unit …… were the key, as they caused one of the shocks of the tournament by knocking out South American Champions Brazil.
The reggae Girlz are yet to concede at this World Cup, with a 1-nil win over Panama, sandwiched in between goalless stalemates with France and the South American champions, and Wiltshire was absolutely solid in the latter two results.
Tasked with keeping some real top talents quiet in her right-back role, Wiltshire won 10 duels, made 10 clearances, won five tackles and both of the aerial battles in which she competed across the two games.
There haven’t been too many outstanding, eye-catching right-backs over the first phase of the World Cup, but there haven’t been any more reliable and dependable ones than the 25-year-old Wiltshire.
