As detailed in a profile for ESPN the Magazine as well as the Washington Post, Cedella Marley, daughter of late singer Bob Marley, has helped lead the Jamaican women’s team — nicknamed “Reggae Girlz” — to its first ever World Cup in 2019.

Although universally known for his music, Bob Marley is also known for his love of soccer. Quite the quotable man, Marley had plenty to share about it.

“Football is freedom, a whole universe.”

And although he only got to share 13 years with his second-oldest daughter, Cedella, his impression on her and his love for the sport was large enough to touch a nation.

Cedella, who leads her father’s label Tuff Gong, saw a flier from her son’s soccer coach in 2014 that asked for donations to help bring back the women’s soccer team. Marley was miffed when she realized how little support the women’s team received and decided to help back it herself.
