There are 10 days to go until the official draw for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Canada 2014.

Sixteen teams will qualify for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup Canada 2014, with just one spot left open on the road to the biennial women’s international soccer tournament.

CONCACAF was the third of six confederations to complete its qualifiers, with the U.S., Mexico and Costa Rica all booking their spots in January.

The U.S. not only qualified, but also won the 2014 CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship held in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands from Jan. 9-19. The Americans won the continental title after a 4-0 victory over Mexico in the final.

The triumph secured a third consecutive and fourth overall CONCACAF Women’s Under-20 Championship for the U.S. Having gone unbeaten throughout the entire competition – not to mention the previous two editions – the Stars and Stripes are now undefeated in 15 qualifying matches dating back to a 1-0 loss to Canada in the 2008 final.

Trinidad and Tobago was less than five minutes away from qualifying before Costa Rica equalized and eventually won the match to claim third place. Michelle Montero tied the game late before Nicole Araya scored the glory goal in extra time.

Canada 2014 will mark the second appearance for Costa Rica (2010, 2014), the sixth appearance for Mexico (2002, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014), and seventh appearance for the U.S. (all editions).
