AUCKLAND, New Zealand – The draw for the 2015 FIFA U-20 World Cup was held Tuesday at the SKYCITY Convention Centre in Auckland, revealing opposition for each of CONCACAF’s four representatives.

While the United States was drawn into Group A with tournament host New Zealand, Ukraine and Myanmar, CONCACAF champion Mexico found itself in arguably the most difficult quartet.  The Tricolor will face Uruguay, Serbia and a yet-to-be-determined African side in Group D.

In Group B, Panama will take on South American champion Argentina, Austria and an undetermined African opponent.

Honduras is set to be challenged by European champion Germany, Fiji, Uzbekistan in Group F.

The 20th edition of the 24-team competition will be held May 30 – June 20 in seven cities throughout New Zealand.  Argentina has won a record six titles, while Mexico’s runner-up placement in 1977 is the best finish by a CONCACAF representative.
