Jordan have avoided the top seeds after the draw was made for the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup which will be held across Northern Jordan from September 30.
At the glittering draw, attended by local VIPs as well FIFA representatives and under the patronage of HRH Prince Ali bin Al Hussein, Jordan were given the privilege of being placed in Pot 1 with the three top ranked sides for being the host nation.
It meant they avoided the best teams, and instead were grouped with Spain, Mexico and New Zealand in Group A.
Favourites Germany were placed in Group B alongside Venezuela, Cameroon and Canada. England will face Nigeria, Brazil and North Korea in Group C while Group D consists of USA, Paraguay, Ghana and second favourites Japan.
Jordan’s opening match on September 30 will be against Spain and the tournament will see a total of 32 games played at four stadiums in Amman, Irbid and Zarqa.
