September 9, 2017

Iran Under-19 Women’s Team will face the U.S. in the CFA International Women’s Youth Football Tournament.

The tournament will take place in Duyun, China from Sept. 10-14.

The tournament will mark just the second meeting between Iran and the U.S. in women’s soccer. The first was April 2016 when the countries met at the U-16 level. The U.S. won that historic match, 6-0 in Italy.

Japan are the most successful side in AFC Women’s U-19 Championship history, having won the tournament four times in eight attempts, while China PR claimed their sole title in Malaysia in 2006.

Iran qualified for the continental U-19 Finals for the first time in 2015, while the United States have been crowned World Champions on three occasions at U-20 level, most recently in 2012.
