    Costa Rica & El Salvador open Central American Qualification with victories

    The women's under-17 teams of Costa Rica and El Salvador opened the Central American Qualification with victories over Nicaragua and Guatemala, respectively, on Sunday.

    Francisca Gonzalez scored the game-winner for El Salvador as they defeated visiting Guatemala 1:0 in the first-leg of the Central American First Round Series A at the Estadio Cuscatlán in San Salvador.

    Elsewhere, four goals by Daniela Maria Cruz and two more from Katherine Alvarado led Costa Rica to a 10:0 triumph over the hosts, Nicaragua in the opening match of Series B at the Estadio Cacique Diriangén in Diriamba.

    The second-leg encounters of each series will take place on 21 and 22 July at the Estadio Mateo Flores in Guatemala City, Guatemala and the Estadio Nacional in San José, Costa Rica, respectively.

    The two Central American Series Winners will advance to the eight-team CONCACAF Final Round (along with three Caribbean teams, Canada, Mexico & USA), at dates and venues to be determined, where three squads will progress to the inaugural FIFA U-17 Women's Cup.
