Women’s World Football Show, Episode 158 features an exclusive interview with Jamaica Women’s National Team Midfielder Chinyelu Asher; and a special Concacaf report with Ana De Souza.
What’s it like to be the first to do something in your field? To be the first to set a record or achieve something that goes down in the annals of history? One thing we know for sure is, when you’re the first to do something, it opens the doors and creates opportunities for other ‘firsts.’
On Episode 158 of Women’s World Football Show, we examine the Jamaica Women’s National Team, better known as the Reggae Girlz and their historic road to becoming the first Caribbean women’s team to qualify for the Women’s World Cup.
Plus, we take a deep dive into the Concacaf teams, players, leagues, and tournaments heading into the 2020 Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championships.
Jamaica WNT midfielder Chinyelu Asher shares her footballing journey, her outlook on pushing past her comfort zone, and her meditative mindset.
As a member of the 2019 Women’s World Cup Jamaican team, Chinyelu gives us a look into her experiences on the team from qualifying to the team’s recent No Pay, No Play walkout and it’s result. If you’ve always loved Chinyelu as a player, you’ll love her even more as a person and role model after this interview. (14’)
