[UNDER-20 WOMEN'S WORLD CUP] The USA will open at the 2014 Under-20 Women's World Cup where it left off in 2012 with a match against Germany, which it beat, 1-0, to win the title. The USA was also drawn with South American champion Brazil and China in Group B at Saturday's draw held at Montreal’s Windsor Hotel.

The USA will open against Germany Aug. 5 in Edmonton and play Brazil three days later there before moving on to Montreal to close out group play against China, which it faced twice this week in friendlies in Florida.
