Canada set to kickoff in the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup at home

Canada will kickoff at the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup on Tuesday, marking the beginning of a year that will make the country “nerve centre of women’s football.”

That was what FIFA president Joseph Blatter said on Monday when he held a press conference on the eve of the prestigious tournament. Canada will take another step in women’s football in 2015 when it hosts the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Canada’s first match in the youth event will be against Ghana in Group A on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET in Toronto (live on CBC). The team was named on July 16.

Canada Soccer released the following preview on matchday:

The other Group A match features Finland and North Korea in Toronto.

Group B – arguably the most difficult to navigate – will stage contests in Edmonton on Tuesday, where in a rematch of the 2012 U-20 final Germany will face defending champion United States. That will be followed by China v. Brazil.

The 16-team tournament features England, Mexico, Nigeria and South Korea in Group C and the final quartet has Costa Rica, France, New Zealand and Paraguay.

Moncton and Montreal join Edmonton and Toronto as the four host cities of the tournament.
