[UNDER-17 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] In a shocking result, the USA did not qualify for the 2010 Under-17 World Cup in Trinidad & Tobago. But Americans could represent finalists Mexico and Canada as well as the host country.

Nia and Amira Walcott of Beltsville, Md., were named to Trinidad and Tobago U-17 team though they had never been to Trinidad before taking part in tryouts.

T&T is coached by former Norway and Canada women's coach Even Pellerud.

The Walcotts' mother was born in Trinidad and Tobago, and their father was born in Guyana.

Nia plays for Freestate United, while Amira plays for the Freestate Fury.

The under-17 tournament will be held in September. Here are the results of this week's draw ...
