Costa Rican women’s youth soccer team faces Nicaragua today after a strong debut Tuesday in Puebla, Mexico, in the qualifiers to see who will make it to the FIFA Under-20 Women’s World Cup in Chile this November.
The Ticas beat Jamaica 3-1 on Tuesday, in a match that was delayed 50 minutes because of an electrical storm, the daily La Nación reported.
The Nicas come from a 2-0 loss Tuesday to Canada’s side, which Costa Rica is scheduled to play on Saturday.
