China, Japan and New Zealand have all qualified for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup taking place in March in Costa Rica. The young Americans had their World Cup dreams halted due to a penalty kick loss to Mexico in the semifinal of the CONCACAF Women’s U-17 Championship, a tournament that saw the USA win four games and draw one (which went to penalties) while scoring 24 goals and allowing just one.

U.S. U-17 Women’s National Team head coach B.J. Snow has called in 24 players for the tournament, 17 of whom were on the USA’s qualifying team. Twenty of the players were born in 1997 or 1998, while four were born in 1999. This will be the last event for the ’97s and ’98s as U-17s before transitioning to the U-18s and U-20s. The ’99s will become the primary age group for the U-17s as they start preparations for qualifying for the 2016 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup.
