This is just the second Women’s U-17 World Cup Final to feature a CONCACAF team. If Mexico wins it will be the first team from the region to claim the Women’s U-17 World Cup title.
Further, this is the first FIFA World Cup Final of any sort to feature referees from the Caribbean.
Jamaican FIFA Referees Stephanie Yee-Sing & Princess Brown will officiate in Saturday's U17 Women's World Cup between Mexico & Spain in Uruguay. This is the first time that any match official, male or female, from the Caribbean will officiate in a World Cup final #GirlPower— Karen Madden (@karendmadden) November 29, 2018
A big day for CONCACAF soccer ahead.
And a very big day for Mexico if it pulls off the upset to win this match. Spain qualified for this World Cup as the UEFA Women’s U-17 Champion; El Tri is here as the second-best team in CONCACAF. Spain has a history of success at this tournament: two third-place finishes and runner-up in 2014. Mexico has never previously been beyond the quarterfinals at the Women’s U-17 World Cup.
Whichever team wins will be claiming the women’s U-17 World Cup for the first time for their nation.
