GRENOBLE, France:

Reggae Girlz head coach Hue Menzies has made several changes in the team's line-up for their final group C game at the FIFA Women's World Cup against Australia at the Stade des Alpes on Tuesday. 

The Jamaicans are hunting their first point or goal of the tournament and Menzies has added an extra element to the team's attacking approach with star striker Khadija 'Bunny' Shaw dropping to an attacking midfield role, behind a front three of Mireya Grey, Cheyna Matthews and Tiffany Cameron. 

Jamaica have registered five shots on target in their two games at the tournament and Menzies have shared that the technical team, over the past few days, has been focussing on the team's efficiency in front of goal.

Concacaf Women's Championships third place play-off penalty shootout hero Nicole McClure has also replaced Sydney Schneider in the Jamaica goal. 

Kick-off will take place at 9:00 p.m. (2:00 p.m. Jamaica time).
