The Nordic Cup is held every year in Scandinavia. Last year was Finland; this year it's Denmark's turn.

This tournament is the most prestigious competition in the world for the U-21 age group, since FIFA does not have a world championship at this level. It is comparable to the Algarve Cup (which is for senior national teams) in both importance and format.

The USA has won 5 of the last 6 years, including the last 4 in a row. Last year they defeated Germany 3-1 in the Gold Medal match.

As last year, Greece is playing with their full Women's National Team on a special invitation to the U-21 event in order to gain some international experience in preparation for the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

The tournament will wrap up on Sunday July 27 with the placement matches.

Here's a good Finnish website with schedules, results, and rosters.

A draw for Sweden against Finland on Friday would put Sweden into the Gold medal match against USA on Sunday.
