U.S. U-17 WNT FACES KOREA DPR FOR BERTH TO WORLD CUP QUARTERFINALS:
The U.S. Under-17 Women’s National Team faces a crucial Group B finale when it takes on Korea DPR at 8 a.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 29, in Baku, Azerbaijan,
at the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup. Korea DPR and the USA are tied in points with four, but North Korea has a five-goal advantage over the U.S. in the
first tie-breaker, goal difference. The U.S. would assure itself of a quarterfinal spot in the tournament with a win, which would also give the USA first
place in Group B. Saturday’s match against Korea DPR will be streamed live on ESPN3. Fans can also follow the match on ussoccer.com’s MatchTracker and on
Twitter @ussoccer_ynt. The USA is coming off a 6-0 victory against Gambia on Tuesday, Sept. 25. For full

USA Advancement Scenarios:

The USA is guaranteed a quarterfinal berth with a victory on Saturday against Korea DPR. The U.S. can also advance with a draw as long as France does not
post a substantial victory against Gambia and overtake the USA in goal differential. If the USA and France tie in both points and goal difference through
group play, goals scored is the next tiebreaker. If both teams are tied in points, goal differential and goals scored, lots would be drawn to determine
which country advances as the second-place team in Group B.

GROUP B UPDATE:

  • USA 6, Gambia 0:
    Summer Green scored three goals as the USA routed Gambia on Tuesday at Dalga Arena in Baku, Azerbaijan. Along with Green’s fourth hat
    trick of 2012, Amber Munerlyn, Moran Stanton and Toni Payne each added a tally to move into sole possession of second place in the group heading into a
    pivotal Group B finale against Korea DPR on Saturday. Goalkeepers Jane Campbell and Cassie Miller split time in the net to make three saves for the
    USA’s second straight shutout in the tournament.
  • Korea DPR 1, France 1:
    Korea DPR and France traded goals within one minute of each other as each team earned a point. North Korea, which is tied in points with the USA, holds
    the goal differential advantage in the group and will guarantee itself a quarterfinal spot with a win or a draw on Saturday against the USA. Ri Un Sim
    gave Korea DPR a 1-0 lead against France in the 59th minute, but France’s Kadidiatou Diani responded with a 60th-minute equalizer.


16 NATIONS, ONE TROPHY:

At the U-17 FIFA Women’s World Cup, each confederation (aside from the smallest Oceania) is given three berths to the tournament to help better facilitate
the growth of the game for young girls around the world. The 16 nations competing in the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup are host Azerbaijan; two
additional teams from Europe in France and Germany; three Asian teams in Japan, Korea DPR and China PR; three from Africa in Nigeria, Ghana and Gambia; the
USA, Canada and Mexico from CONCACAF; Brazil, Colombia and Uruguay from South America; and New Zealand from Oceania.


U-17 WWC HISTORY:

  • 2008:
    The inaugural FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup was held in 2008, when the USA won the CONCACAF Qualifying Tournament, advanced to the World Cup Final in New
    Zealand and came within minutes of winning the title before falling in overtime to Korea DPR.
  • 2010:
    The USA failed to qualify for the 2010 event in Trinidad & Tobago, losing in penalty kicks in the semifinal despite outscoring its opponents 38-0
    in the qualifying tournament. The 2010 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup was won by Korea Republic, which defeated Japan in a wild match that ended 2-2
    through regulation and 3-3 after overtime as each team scored in the extra 30 minutes. South Korea then won 5-4 in the penalty kick shootout.
  • 2012:
    Korea Republic did not qualify for this year’s tournament, marking only the second time in the history of FIFA Women’s competitions that the reigning
    champion is unable to defend its title. The other occasion was the 2004 Olympics, when Norway did not qualify after winning the gold medal in 2000.
