    MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica – Both of the confederation’s qualifying berths for the 2014 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup will be determined on Thursday, as the survivors of the 2013 CONCACAF Women’s Under-17 Championship (CWU17) semifinal doubleheader will earn tickets to Costa Rica.

    Catherine Hall Stadium is expected to be filled to capacity for the highly-anticipated and -- at least for Jamaica -- possibly historic evening.

    In the opener, the two-time champion United States squares off against Mexico, followed by an encounter between the host Jamaicans and Canada.

    Astonishingly, the Americans have not conceded a goal in the competition since the 72nd minute of a 4-1 win over Costa Rica on July 22, 2008, a span of more than 13 games and 1,218 minutes.

    Jamaica, which had never before progressed beyond the U-17 group phase, is aiming for its first-ever qualification to a FIFA women’s event at any level.  It is unbeaten in six of its last seven games in the tournament.  The only loss over that stretch came against Canada (4-0), its 2013 semifinal opponent, on May 4, 2012, in Guatemala City.

    In addition to securing World Cup spots, the semifinal winners will advance to the CONCACAF final on Saturday, while the losers will meet in the match for third place.

    To get you ready for all the semifinal action, CONCACAF.com takes a look at today’s games:
