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.
