The FIFA U20 Women's World Cup started on 10 August. Among the 16 participating teams are 73 players who have featured in the Sud Ladies Cup.
Just under two months after their participation in the Sud Ladies Cup, USA, France, Mexico and Netherlands got down to business last week with the start of the U20 World Cup.
The four teams came to the French region Sud to prepare for the competition and a large proportion of their players were seen at the SLC 2022 as they are 74. France will compete in the World Cup with 21 players already present at the Sud Ladies Cup. The Americans have 16 players, the Mexicans 17 and the Dutch 20.
After two days in the group phase, the four teams have had mixed results. After losing their opening match to Nigeria, the French made up for it by beating Canada in their second game (3-1), thanks in particular to a brace from Magnaba Folquet.
The USA beat Ghana 3-0 on the opening matchday before losing by the same score to Netherlands (0-3) in a replay of the Sud Ladies Cup previous game. The Dutch have now recovered from their opening loss to Japan (0-1). Finally, Mexico have two draws in two games against New Zealand (1-1) and Colombia (0-0). All are still in contention to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.
