Brazil, Uruguay book place in Azerbaijan

Brazil and Uruguay have become the first two CONMEBOL teams to book their place at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup Azerbaijan 2012.

After two rounds of fixtures in the final phase of qualifying from the South American region, both teams have two victories and six points, enough to ensure a spot apiece at the tournament to be played in September and October this year.

Uruguay completed their qualification in style, with top scorer Yamil Bedel claiming all four goals during an historic 4-2 win over Argentina which means a women’s team from Uruguay will feature at a FIFA World Cup for the first time.

Brazil also made it two wins out of two by beating Colombia 3-1 and will face Uruguay in their final match to decide who will be crowned continental champions.

One more finals place is still available, with the winner of the game between Argentina and Colombia joining the top two in Azerbaijan. A draw would see Colombia progress due to their superior goal difference.
