U-19 FIFA Women's World Championships

As the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team competes in the 2006 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Championship in Russia, we thought we’d quiz you about the last two world championships (which were at the U-19 level…if you didn’t know that you might be in trouble). Here are six questions about the 2002 and 2004 FIFA U-19 Women’s World Championships, the same amount of questions as victories it will take for the U.S. to win the tournament. Get six right you’re a world champion, five and you’re the runner-up, four and it’s only to the quarters, three your out of your group and two, well, you might not being moving on to the next round.
