U.S. U-20 women to face Argentina, France and China

The U.S. U-20 women's national team has been drawn into Group B of the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup. Group B will comprise France, Argentina, China and the U.S.

The U.S. opens against France on Nov. 19, before facing Argentina on Nov. 22, with both games taking place at the Estadio Nelson Oyarzun in Chillan. The team will then conclude group play against China on Nov. 26 in Temuco.

The field of 16 teams was divided into four groups of four, with the U.S., host Chile, Brazil and Germany earning the top seeds in the draw. The top two finishers in each group will advance to the quarterfinals. Should the U.S. advance out of Group B, they will face an opponent from Group A, which consists of Chile, England, New Zealand and Nigeria.

The U.S. has qualified for all four World Championships at this level, with the first two tournaments held as Under-19 tournaments. In June, the U.S. advanced to the final of the CONCACAF U-20 Women's Championship but lost to Canada 1-0 in the final.

The U.S. won the first-ever FIFA Under-19 World Championship in 2002 in an overtime thriller against host Canada. Current women's national team player Lindsay Tarpley scored the golden goal in the final and captained that side. In 2004, the U.S. fell to eventual-champion Germany in the semifinals and defeated Brazil, 3-0, in the third-place match. Two years later in Russia, the Americans finished fourth after falling to Brail in a penalty shootout in the third-place game.

In preparation for the tournament, U.S. head coach Tony DiCicco will hold two training camps before heading to Chile. The team will train in Sunrise, Fla. from Sept. 21-29, after which, DiCicco will make his final selections for the 21-player roster in October.
