Brown wants tougher Girlz
Forward Jody Brown believes the Reggae Girlz need a tougher mentality when they face Canada in the second game of their two-way Olympic Games qualifier tomorrow at the BMO Field in Toronto.
The Canadians enter the second leg with the advantage after a 2-0 win at the National Stadium on Friday.
Brown contends that despite the enormity of the task ahead, the Reggae Girlz showed they can compete with the defending Olympic Games champions and world No. 10 ranked Canadians. She argues that the Reggae Girlz must be focused for the upcoming game.
"We created good chances in the game, but it was unfortunate we could not put any in the back of the net. We have to be focused now and know that we need some goals in the next game.
"We remain positive. We just got to change our mindset, as they are fighting for the same thing we are fighting for, so we have to go out and compete even harder, " Brown said.
The 21-year-old Brown, who made her senior international debut at age 16, said the first leg is behind them, and the focus is now on getting it right tomorrow.
"We came out knowing what to expect, and I thought we started pretty good. The first goal put us behind, but we have to look forward. We can't go back to the game, so we just got to fix the errors and move forward," she said.
Brown is looking forward to playing her role to present a chance for Jamaica to get back into the contest.
"Definitely, every time I play for Jamaica, I always try to do my best," she added when quizzed.
