England, Switzerland, France and Sweden have reached the Semi-finals at the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship in Belarus, thereby qualifying for the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup Germany 2010 and rounding out Europe's four slots in the competition, in addition to that which is earmarked for the host nation.
Despite the loss, Switzerland advance at Germany's expense via Group A head-to-head calculations. And though they notched a ruthless 9-0 victory against Belarus, it was not enough as Germany failed to reach the Semi-finals for the first time in six years.
The Semi-finals of the UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship 2009 shall occur on 22 July, with Group A winners France facing Group B runners-up Sweden and Group B winners England taking on Group A runners-up Switzerland.
The Final is set for 25 July.
