Auburn soccer sophomore playing for Jamaica in CFU World Cup

Kim Spence has temporarily traded orange and blue for green and gold.

Auburn soccer player Kim Spence will be suiting up Jamaica for a week in the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) World Cup.

Auburn Soccer’s online bio of the sophomore forward lists her hometown as Lilburn, Ga. But she was born in Jamaica and came to the United States with her parents at age 3.

“It’s not everyday someone gets the chance to play for their country, so I am very excited,” Spence, 19, told the Jamaican Observer. “I think it’s a great opportunity.”

Spence flew to the Dominican Republic Wednesday night  in order to contribute as a striker in today’s qualifying final against Haiti.
