The Jamaican Football Federation (JFF) says its Women's World Cup squad has now been paid after a row which saw the players boycott Gold Cup qualifiers.

The squad refused to play against Panama and Guatemala this week, accusing the JFF of delayed payments and poor management. The federation said: "We are always grateful for the contribution made by all our players."

The players have not confirmed if they have received the money. The Reggae Girlz recently announced the boycott after saying they had not received full pay for their World Cup performances or bonuses for qualifying.

The players also said they only found out they had a new head coach on social media. The squad produced a historic performance at last summer's tournament in Australia and New Zealand, reaching the knockout stages for the first time. Featuring Women's Super League players such as Manchester City's Khadija Shaw and Tottenham's Drew Spence, the team finished ahead of Brazil in their group before losing to Colombia in the last 16.

The JFF said it had paid the "full balance" to World Cup squad and would start processing payments to every player who took part in the qualifying matches but did not go to the tournament. In a statement they said: "We are happy that we have been able to settle these outstanding amounts."
