Jamaican footballer Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw has been listed as one of the top 100 female footballers for 2019 by British newspaper, the Guardian’s International Edition.
Shaw, who was a part of the history-making Jamaica National Senior team which qualified for the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup, was ranked at number 80 on the list.
The Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) today extended congratulations to the player, who now plays for French professional club Bordeaux.
“The JFF commends this outstanding athlete; footballer; woman and Jamaican brand representative par excellence,” the federation said in a release.
Some of Shaw’s achievements include scoring nine goals in 10 games to date for Bordeaux, which is currently the second highest at the women’s professional club level.
She is also the all-time leading goal scorer for Jamaica (male or female) and is the youngest female player to achieve 40 goals for her national team.
This she accomplished in the Caribbean leg of Women’s Olympic Qualifiers in October.
