FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, 2008 in Chile

2008 FIFA U-20 World Cup

16 nations will compete: AFC (3), CAF (2), CONCACAF (3), CONMEBOL (2), OFC (1), UEFA (4), plus the host country.

UEFA's representatives will be Germany, France, England, and Norway, by virtue of their top-4 finishes in the UEFA U-19 Championship this year. Other confederations TBA.

Chile will host the biennial tournament (formerly called the FIFA U-20 Women's Championship), November 19 to December 7, 2008 (midsummer in Chile). The dates were changed from the originally contemplated August-September 2008 and the later contemplated December-January 2009 .

The four venues will be:
• Francisco Sánchez Rumoroso Municipal Stadium, Coquimbo
• La Florida Municipal Stadium, La Florida (Greater Santiago)
• Nelson Oyarzún Arenas Municipal Stadium, Chillán
• Germán Becker Municipal Stadium, Temuco

The FIFA 2006 U-20 championship was won by North Korea.

CONCACAF will send 3 teams to Chile.

Those teams will be the top 3 from the 2008 CONCACAF U-20 Women's Championship. Eight teams will compete in the final round:

Group A: Mexico, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobago, USA
Group B: Canada, Costa Rica, Jamaica, Nicaragua

Top 2 in each Group meet in semifinals on June 24-25; the two finalists will qualify for Chile 2008, while the third qualifier will be the winner of the Third-Place match on June 28.

Update: Canada and USA have qualified, as semifinal winners. The third qualifier is Mexico, by virtue of its win over Costa Rica in the third place match. And Canada beat USA 1-0 in the final to finish first in the qualifying tournament.

CAF Qualifiers, final round (FIFA says these will take place June 13-15, but CAF has a casual attitude to rescheduling dates):

Ghana v Nigeria
Congo DR v South Africa

Update:

Nigeria has qualified on a 5-2 aggregate over Ghana.
Congo DR has qualified on away goals after drawing 3-3 on aggregate with South Africa.

They're small venues, but will be very welcomed once finished and ready to go in November ... Hopefully this winter doesnt get in the way of the construction crews ..

I watched a bit of Japan - Germany and I am happy that Japan won, they showed some very nice football.

“But we're a university! We have to have a library!" said Ridcully. "It adds tone. What sort of people would we be if we didn't go into the library?"

"Students," said Senior Wrangler morosely.”
