Bunny Shaw has helped her national side Jamaica reach their first ever World Cup knockout round.
Following a 0-0 draw with Brazil, they secured their historical achievement.
A reminder that Jamaica needed crowdfunding to help get to the Women’s World Cup due to lack of support from the JFF.

The Manchester City striker captained her side for the full 90 minutes and saw the game out without dropping points.
A draw was enough to take Jamaica one step closer to the dream as two wins earlier in the group stage gave them enough points to progress.
However, it was all on the line when Brazil started off strong, dominating possession and chances.
Jamaica’s keeper Spencer was forced to make an early save within five minutes of kick-off. It was Brazilian icon Marta that drove into the box and take thunder shot. While they defended well and patiently waited for their chances, it was Bunny herself that looked to create early in the second half.
Despite only 27% possession they managed to hold off Brazil and make history for their national side.
Their next opponent will be winners of Group H which will be Morroco, Colombia or Germany.
