Sport

The U-17 women’s tournament, qualifier for the Uruguay World Cup in 2019, began last Friday in Managua

The North, Central American and Caribbean Football Confederation (CONCACAF) has announced the cancellation of the qualification tournament for the U-17 World Championship that was being played in Nicaragua, due to “force majeure”, due to the violence that exists in the capital Nicaraguan.

CONCACAF considers that it can not guarantee the security of the delegations. “The decision to cancel the rest of the tournament was made after CONCACAF, in coordination with the Nicaraguan Soccer Federation and local authorities, continuously assessed the situation in the country,” the company said in a statement.

The U-17 women’s tournament, qualifier for the Uruguay World Cup in 2019, began last Friday in Managua, and six matches had already been played: Puerto Rico 1 – Haiti 0; Nicaragua 0 – Mexico 8; Canada 3 – Bermuda 0; United States 4 – Costa Rica 0; Mexico 7 – Puerto Rico 0 and Nicaragua 0 – Haiti
