“We are feeling extremely ready for the game. I think we have prepared as well as we possibly could with what we have and its just for us now to go out there and play like we know we can to come out victorious,” Jamaica captain Jhaniele Fowler told the Jamaica Observer on Saturday.
“A team like Jamaica are just so different to any other in the world’s top five,” England’s Helen Housby said ahead of the encounter. “The way that they play, and their natural style, it’s just so different.
“Historically, England have met Jamaica at pretty much every major tournament, whether that’s during the group stages or in the knockout matches. So for us, getting as many minutes against them in preparation isn’t a bad thing.
“I do really enjoy playing against the Sunshine Girls; I didn’t enjoy the [Commonwealth Games] semi-final on the Gold Coast though!”
