U-17 Women’s World Cup has began!

This Tuesday, 13th November, the U-17 Women’s World Cup has begun in Uruguay.

Three matches had already been played: Brasil-Japan (0-0), New Zealand-Finland (1-0) and Mexico-South Africa (0-0). At the moment, La Celeste is debuting at the competition against Ghana at Estadio Charrúa. Seems like a slow start, but it’ll get better and better as it goes on.

The U-17 team led by coach Ariel Longo arrives very well prepared for the tournament. Their last two friendlies were against Mexico (2-1) and against South Africa (3-0), and the Uruguayan players have shown the world they are a clear contender to win the international tournament.

Karol Bermúdez, Sasha Larrea, Micaela Domínguez and Deyna Morales, and the forward Esperanza Pizarro and Belén Aquino…

Don’t forget those names.
