Draw for UEFA WU19 Championship group stage revealed

Northern Ireland will face Spain, Germany and Scotland in the group stages of this summer’s UEFA Women’s Under-19 Championship.

The draw for the finals, which are being staged in Northern Ireland from 8-20 August, was held at Belfast City Hall this afternoon.

The other group will see holders France, England, Italy and the Netherlands face each other.

The group games will be played in four venues across Northern Ireland: National Football Stadium at Windsor Park, Belfast; Mourneview Park, Lurgan; Ballymena Showgrounds and Shamrock Park, Portadown. 

Northern Ireland’s first game of the tournament will see them take on Spain, last year’s runners-up, at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park on 8 August (19:00 kick-off). 

In their second Group A game, at Mourneview Park in Lurgan on 11 August (19:00), they will face Scotland.

And their third and final group game will be against Germany at Ballymena Showgrounds on 14 August (19:00).

The winners and runners-up in both groups will face each other in the semi-finals at the National Football Stadium at Windsor Park.

After the draw, National Women’s Coach Alfie Wylie said: “It’s fantastic and very exciting. We can look forward to three wonderful games.

“Taking on Spain, who were finalists last year, in the first game will be a great occasion. They are a superb team from a top footballing country.

“The senior teams of all three nations are taking part in the Women’s Euros this summer. This is a fantastic opportunity for our girls to test themselves against some of the best teams in Europe.”
