Things begin on Saturday with the Concacaf Caribbean Women’s qualifiers, as five teams – Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Antigua and Barbuda and Bermuda – will be gunning for the top three spots and berths in the 2018 CWC.

Of note are the attacking forces of Cuba, Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. The Cubans poured in 22 goals in the first round of qualifying, while the Reggae Girlz tallied 18, led by Khadija Shaw, who leads CWC Qualifying with eight goals.
Not to be outdone is Trinidad and Tobago, who scored a whopping 27 goals in qualifying, including 10-0 and 13-0 victories over the U.S. Virgin Islands and Grenada, respectively.
