June 13, 2008

Costa Rican women’s youth soccer team faces Nicaragua today after a strong debut Tuesday in Puebla, Mexico, in the qualifiers to see who will make it to the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Chile this November.

The Ticas beat Jamaica 3-1 on Tuesday, in a match that was delayed 50 minutes because of an electrical storm, the daily La Nación reported.

The Nicas come from a 2-0 loss Tuesday to Canada’s side, which Costa Rica is scheduled to play on Saturday.

The CONCACAF Women´s U-20 Championship is set to run in Mexico through June 28. The top-three teams from CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) will get to face top sides from other continents in Chile from Nov. 19 to Dec. 7.
