Semi-finals set for FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup

The semi-finals of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup are set to get underway on Tuesday, November 29 at the Sir John Guise Stadium with four countries left standing in the competition.

They’re Asian duo Japan and Korea DPR, European team France and the United States.

The first match will see Korea DPR take on USA. The last time they met back in 2012, USA won 2-1 after extra time.

After over two weeks of competition, former winners USA and Korea DPR are determined to lift the trophy once again by making it to the grand final.

USA is hoping to be crowned champions for the fourth time while Korea DPR is determined to take the title for the second time around.

The second semi-final is between Japan and France. Both teams are looking to make history by reaching the final for the first time.

The winners of both matches will advance to the grand final scheduled on Saturday, December 3.

Reigning champions Germany, who have already been eliminated, are three time world champions since the tournament’s inception in 2002.
